Speaking on receiving the remaining 2021 fixtures, Gloucestershire Cricket Chief Executive, Will Brown said:

“To have our Vitality Blast and Royal London Cup schedules confirmed is very exciting. This completes our 2021 calendar, and we can now look forward to an exciting season of domestic cricket in Bristol and Cheltenham.

We are very much looking forward to both competitions as we look to capitalise on the excellent progress made from 2020 when we reached the Vitality Blast Finals Day for the first time in over a decade.”
