Visitor Information | T20 Vitality Blast: Glos v Hampshire Hawks
Following victory v Kent Spitfires on Tuesday evening, Gloucstershire remain right in the mix for a quarter final place in the T20 Vitality Blast. We’re excited to welcome Hampshire Hawks to the Seat Unique Stadium tomorrow for our next home match here in Bristol.
Check out our visitor information so you know what’s going on and when…
MATCH DATE - Friday 24 June 2022
Gates open - 16:30 | Match Starts - 18:30
Tickets are selling fast, but are still available here. Prices start at £7 for children and £27 for adults. Advance prices will be available until 4pm on match day.
Pre-Match Day Information
If you’ve purchased a ticket it will have been emailed to you already, so you can either print it out at home or have it scanned via your mobile phone at one of the entrances – you must bring one form of your e-ticket with you to the match.
Please read all of the important information that accompanied your e-ticket. It details how to use your e-ticket, which entrance of the Stadium you should arrive at and what’s expected of you at the match.
Access for this fixture is either at the Nevil Road entrance (BS7 9EJ) or the Ashley Down Road End entrance (BS7 9BU).
Please allow sufficient time to enter the Stadium. Gate queues are likely and bag searches are taking place - be patient and bear with us. Best advice is to book your ticket in advance and arrive early.
Access for Members
Gloucestershire Cricket Members will be able to gain entry using just their 2022 Membership card. This access is available for all our membership packages, including our all-new Junior Membership and BS7 gym membership. Please note, the Hammond Roof and Korev Terrace will be restricted to hospitality participants only.
Entertainment & Kid’s Activities
Entertainment will include the legendary Big Apple Race at the interval, where two supporters will race giant inflatable Thatchers apples in a bid to win a case of Thatchers Gold Cider.
Everyone will have the chance to win a case of Thatchers Gold in our Golden Ticket competition. The lucky winner will be picked at random from the crowd. But if you don’t win the cider, stand by - free T20 t-shirts could be blasted into the crowd at any moment…
In our kid’s activation zone you’ll find our brand new Reaction Wall. Come and have a try, see if you can beat the players’ reaction times! You’ll also find a bowling cage and cricket coaching there too.
If your kids love having a large ‘4’ or ‘6’ card ready for the next boundary, they can either pick one up at the entrances or now make their own. They can paint or draw onto thick seed paper, use it through the game and then take it home to plant afterwards.
What we need from you
All match tickets are unassigned, so you can choose where you sit when you get to the Stadium and meet up with friends easily if they’ve bought tickets separately. Please arrive early though if you want the pick of the seats or if you need to sit a large group together.
As much as many of us enjoy a drink and some fun at a T20 evening, please drink responsibly and consider your language and behaviour. The T20 Blast is for all the family, so be aware of those sitting near you and make the evening an enjoyable one for everyone.
If you find yourself sat near someone drinking or behaving irresponsibly, please let us know and the stewards will resolve the situation as quickly as possible. Either speak to a steward or report the behaviour anonymously via text message to the following number: 07860 027799
Please also remember to WATCH THE BALL. When a four or six is hit, the ball could be coming your way, into the stand, at speed. Keep your eyes peeled to ensure you’re not taken by surprise.
Please be aware that ALL of the Seat Unique Stadium is now cashless, so bring along a debit or credit card for all food, drinks and merchandise purchases.
Beat the drinks queue with the Glos Cricket App
Spend more time watching the cricket and use the Glos App to order drinks from your seat – they’ll be ready for collection from either the Thatcher’s Bar or the Legend’s Bar (as selected). You can also use it to stay up-to-date with all the latest news or to buy tickets for your next match.
