Both Chris Jordan and Sid the Shark made a very special appearance at Brighton and Hove Albion yesterday to promote the launch of the NatWest T20 Blast.

The domestic T20 competition is re-launching under a new format in 2014 and Sussex Sharks will once again be aiming for glory at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Hove, and Chris was interviewed at half-time at the AMEX Stadium as Albion drew 1-1 with Blackpool in the nPower Championship. We'll have more news to follow soon about our tie-up with the Albion.

The NatWest T20 Blast launches on Friday 16th May as the Sharks entertain rivals Surrey under the lights at Hove (7.00pm). The new format of the competition sees the majority of games taking place on Friday nights across 11 weeks of the season.

NatWest T20 Blast is all about fast paced, action packed cricket with fours hit, sixes launched and wickets cartwheeling – all jam packed into three hours of action. And the new Friday night fixtures off the chance for cricket fans, groups of friends and families alike the chance to try something different and start their weekend with a blast at Hove.

The Sharks can of course boast plenty of big-hitting stars like England’s Matt Prior and Luke Wright, whilst Pakistani Yasir Arafat makes his return to Hove as overseas player to boost the star bowling options after winning the Big Bash in Australia over the winter.

And as well as the big-hitting Friday night action, Sussex also welcome the newly-crowned ICC World T20 Champions SRI LANKA to Hove on Sunday 18th May for a Tour Match as they prepare for their T20 Internationals against England.

Tickets for all of these games are ON SALE NOW and Adult tickets for NatWest T20 Blast fixtures are £5 cheaper when purchased in advance. Buy online HERE or call 0844 264 0206 to guarantee your seat at Hove.

We’ll even be opening, for the very first time on T20 nights, the SHARK PIT at Hove where youngsters aged between 6 and 16 can get FREE coaching in the ground! Look out for signs to the Shark Pit when you’re at Hove to get involved.
