The 2022 domestic fixtures have been announced with Glamorgan to open their LV= County Championship campaign against Durham at Sophia Gardens on Thursday, 7th April.
After six matches in the LV= County Championship across April and May, the Welsh county enter Vitality Blast action, with this year marking the 20th edition of the T20 competition.
The Vitality Blast will run over a seven-week period (May 25 – July 16) with Glamorgan kicking-off their T20 campaign away at Sussex Sharks on Thursday, 26th May.
Glamorgan will play seven home matches across the group stages of the competition with our opening home game against Essex Eagles on Thursday, 2nd June, while our final home match is a blockbuster affair under the Friday night lights at Sophia Gardens against local rivals Somerset on 24th June, in 'The Big Match.'
Following a warm-up match against Wales National County (31st July) we will begin our Royal London Cup title defence with an away trip to Derbyshire Falcons on Tuesday, 2nd August.
The opening home match in the 50-over competition is against Kent on Thursday, 4th August with the venue to be confirmed, while we will return to The Gnoll in Neath for the first time since 1995 with back-to-back matches against Lancashire (17th August) and Hampshire (19th August).
In September, we play our final LV= County Championship matches of the season, with home games at Sophia Gardens against Worcestershire (8th September) and Derbyshire (20th September) before the season comes to a close away at Sussex.
Members and supporters can immediately download all Glamorgan fixtures to the calendar on their mobile phone and digital devices with a couple of clicks.
Head of operations, Dan Cherry, said: “It’s always an exciting time of year when the fixtures are released, and it’s once again looking like another action-packed summer of cricket for our members and supporters to enjoy.
“It’s particularly pleasing to enter the campaign as Royal London Cup defending champions and we hope to continue that success across all formats this season.
“Regrettably, we are unable to play at St. Helen’s this year, with the facilities no longer able to support the hosting of domestic cricket at the venue. However, we are pleased we are able to continue to host cricket in West Wales with a return to The Gnoll in Neath for the first time in 27 years.
“We remain in negotiations with our other out-grounds to determine the feasibility of hosting matches at their venues given the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on volunteer resources and local infrastructure.
“We will be confirming all venues for our home matches as soon as these discussions are concluded.”
