Help make Wales proud

We're always keen to recruit volunteers at Sophia Gardens, the home of Glamorgan County Cricket Club.

Our Volunteers are priceless, helping to support our International, Hundred and Vitality Blast fixtures; together with our varied community projects that we run on a regular basis.

Our aim is to provide a Warm Welsh Welcome and a first class customer service to spectators during our Vitality Blast and Hundred home fixtures, our non match-day events, and our international fixtures planned for 2020 and beyond.

“Our volunteers are a source of pride for us – they are consistently praised by our fans and those who visit Sophia Gardens, and are a big part of what we do here.

“We are very thankful for those we already have and we want to create an even larger team that can help deliver great experiences to our spectators.

“We believe that becoming a volunteer at Glamorgan can provide you with amazing experiences in a live sports environment, and help you develop skills that can’t be developed in every day life.”
