Hampshire will kick off their 2013 County Championship division two promotion bid against Leicestershire at the Ageas Bowl on Wednesday, April 10.
As Giles White’s men fight for a return to the top table of the domestic first-class game, they will also face Worcestershire, Essex, Gloucestershire, Lancashire, Northamptonshire, Kent and Glamorgan.
The Royals will be looking for a bold show in t20 cricket, too, as they aim to defend their title.
And Surrey will provide the first hurdle at the Ageas Bowl under lights on Wednesday, June 26.
The south group promises to be a hotly-contested division once again with Essex, Sussex, Middlesex and Kent all fighting for a trip to Finals Day at Edgbaston on Saturday, August 17.
Meanwhile, Hampshire begin the defence of their Clydesdale Bank 40 crown with a trip to the Essex Eagles on Friday, May 3.
Making up their group are the Scottish Saltires, Surrey, Durham Dynamos, Derbyshire Falcons and last summer’s semi-finalists Lancashire Lightning.
In friendly fixtures, Hampshire will play Loughborough University MCCU on Wednesday, April 17.
They are also due to lock horns with Bangladesh A in a 50-over match on Tuesday, August 6.
Entry will be free for both fixtures.
The Ageas Bowl will also host England one-dayers against New Zealand – on Sunday, June 2 – and Australia – on Monday, September 16.
Hampshire will also play host to a t20 international with the Aussies on Thursday, August 29.
England’s women are in t20 action against their Australian counterparts on the same day.
