The 2013 domestic cricket fixtures were announced today with holders Warwickshire heading to newly promoted Derbyshire on the opening weekend.
The new season starts on April the 10th and will finish the last weekend in September, making it one of the longest ever seasons.
The actual season beginning is the 24th March as Warwickshire face an MCC XI in Abu Dhabi in the traditional opening curtain raiser.
The CB40 campaign will start in early may and the FLt20 will start on 26th June.
It will be the last ever CB40 as it will revert to the 50 over format in 2014, to mirror that of international cricket.
The restructure would see teams play more FLt20 games in the group, up from the current ten to 14.
The complete opening round fixtures are as follows:
Durham v Somerset, Notts v Middlesex, Warwickshire v Derbyshire, Yorkshire v Sussex
Essex v Gloucestershire, Glamorgan v Northants, Lancashire v Worcestershire
Finals day for the t20 competition will be August 17th and the final of the CB40 the 21 September.
