Glamorgan restates its zero tolerance stance on racism

11 Nov 2021 | Community

Following recent conversations about racism in cricket, Glamorgan Cricket is reiterating its commitment to eradicate any form of discrimination or racism from our game.

Glamorgan Cricket is an anti-racist organisation with a zero tolerance policy towards any kind of prejudice.

Along with the ECB and other key stakeholders, the club has an ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion and is actively taking steps to engage with our diverse communities across Wales to ensure that cricket is a welcoming environment for all.

Rezwan Hassan, nominated board member at Glamorgan Cricket and chair of its Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Sub-Committee, a sub-board created to improve the club’s insight and impact on diverse communities in Wales, said:

“Racism and discrimination of any kind is absolutely abhorrent and these recent events have brought a shadow on the game.

“There is a real opportunity for cricket to learn from this and move forward to become a more accessible and inclusive sport.

“Glamorgan has made great strides over recent years to improve links and reach out to diverse communities in Wales, but we know that me must do more, and continue to listen and learn from anyone who may have been effected by discrimination.”

The club would like to invite any Glamorgan player, coach, official or employee to contact us if they feel they have ever suffered racism or discrimination on any occasion during their time at the club.

Anybody wanting to contact the club is asked to do so via the pre-existing confidential reporting service that has been setup by the Professional Cricketers’ Association and the England and Wales Cricket Board.

The contact addresses for these are or


The Independent Commission for Equity on Cricket (ICEC) has also launched its public Call for Evidence asking for everyone in cricket to share their perceptions and experiences of discrimination and inclusion in cricket.

This is a public call to action for anyone who wishes to go to the ICEC website and complete an online survey. The Commission will produce a report in Summer 2022 which will recommend measures to tackle the problems, improve equity and identify good practice in relation to race, gender and class within cricket.

The ICEC is completely independent of the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Glamorgan Cricket, but the club is fully supportive of its remit.
