Friends of Grace Road

The Friends of Grace Road website

Friends of Grace Road (FoGR) was established in 1971 when a group of like-minded Leicestershire cricket supporters came together to organise coach trips to away games.

The FoGR has a committee of volunteers and supporters who manage and run the coffee bar and shop. All donate freely of their time and efforts to give Grace Road this unique service - appreciated by members and visitors alike.

The FoGR will again offer a full range of homemade cakes, teas & coffees upstairs in the Meet from 2:30pm to 4.30pm on each of the first three days of Specsavers County Championship fixtures, all three days of the tourist game v Sri Lanka, and all Royal London One-Day Cup games in 2016.

Please note that these timings move forward by half an hour for fixtures in September. The Friends of Grace Road will also be open between 4pm to 7pm for the floodlit Royal London One-Day International between England Women and Pakistan Women on Monday, June 20.
