Not sure who is going to "support" the Welsh Fire. I would not count The Hundred as "top quality" cricket. Just a slog with gimmicks.
An interesting point to note is that when international tickets have been bought at Glamorgan 61 per cent come from outside Wales. This shows that people are willing to travel to watch top quality cricket. I think that the powers to be are testing the water with the Welsh Fire brand and may change if needs be.
Still very confused by the marketing policy but will wait and see.

A simplified game to attract new fans, if they can outsmart the website to get some tickets.Are you a Mum? Are you a kid?

He said that the county championship may be abandoned for this year wth only white ball cricket on offer. He is clamouring to get his membership refunded. What do you think and what will you do?I think the 50-over comp will be cancelled but they will try and play Championship games even when the 100 comp is on.
