Batsman Aneurin Donald is relishing the prospect of playing in front of large home crowds in this year’s Vitality Blast.

Tickets for the competition went on-sale last week with Glamorgan to play seven home matches across the campaign and tickets from just £10 for adults.

The Welsh county enjoyed a successful 2017 campaign, reaching Finals Day for the first time in 13 years after topping the South Group and defeating Leicestershire Foxes in the quarter-finals.

This year Glamorgan play four home Friday night matches, as well three family days, and Donald believes it could see supporters flock to Cardiff to get behind the side, with the atmosphere helping to propel the team’s challenge.

"The Blast is one of the highlights of our year,” said Donald.

“When we get a big crowd and an electric Friday night atmosphere, that's when we play our best cricket.

“We also have a couple of Sunday games where we’re making it a real family day out and an event and make it accessible to everyone.

“We’re making a big effort trying to create a club and culture Wales can get behind.  

"We've been playing well in the white-ball formats in the last year or so. We've been competing for a title and hopefully this year will be the same.

"It was fantastic to get to Finals Day last season and nice for Glamorgan to be part of the big occasion, although obviously it was a shame to fall at one of the last hurdles,”

"We were one of the stronger teams over the course of the season and hope to be there again."

Glamorgan begin their campaign against Sussex Sharks on Sunday, 8th July with adult tickets just £10 for adults and children free.

Supporters can also purchase a T20 Season Ticket for all seven matches for just £60, giving an overall saving of £34 on individual adult advance tickets.
