The club are excited to announce that our Blast Passes for this summer’s Vitality Blast are now SOLD OUT.
The record-breaking sales are up by 76% on last year, and follow two successful campaigns in 2019 and 2018 which saw the Sharks win the South Group and reach Finals Day.
With the world’s best T20 bowler, Rashid Khan returning to The 1st Central County Ground, and the likes of Travis Head and Ravi Bopara strengthening Jason Gillespie’s impressive squad, the 2020 season promises to be another special one in front of a packed home crowd.
Gillespie said: “On behalf of the whole club, I’d like to thank the Sharks fans for their incredible support.
“Vitality Blast nights have always been special since I joined the club, and I know the sell-out crowds help the boys on the pitch. The atmosphere can be very special.
“We can’t wait to get back out there this summer, and we’ll be aiming to reach Finals Day again. We know it will be hard, so we’ll need the fans every step of the way.”
Enthusiasm for T20 cricket in Sussex has never been greater, with seven of eight Vitality Blast matches selling out in advance last summer.
Capacity crowds witnessed emphatic nine-wicket wins against Kent Spitfires and Glamorgan, victory in El Clasicoast against rivals Hampshire and even a thrilling tie against Surrey.
Sharks skipper, Luke Wright said: “The support we get from our fans is incredible.
“The atmosphere at Hove over the last few years has been amazing, and I know it made a huge difference to the team last year.
“On behalf of the whole squad, I’d like to thank the Sussex fans for their support going into the new season.
“I can’t wait to see The 1st Central County Ground bouncing again this summer!”
