Cricket is one of the most popular sports in Wales and is always a favourite at festivals or family gatherings. In cricket, Wales falls under the same governing body as England, The England and Wales Cricket Board.
Wales' major team, Glamorgan County Cricket Club, is the only Welsh club to participate in the County Championship, the first class cricket competition in England and Wales. When it comes to international events, the Welsh combine their efforts wit the English to form the England cricket team, which represents both countries.
Cricket supporters travelling by air will fly into Cardiff Airport, currently Wales' only international air hub. There are many regular flights to Cardiff from major cities across Europe and fans arriving here will find a well-integrated public transport network. Cricket fans can also easily reach Wales by car or train. Many choose to book a hotel close to the ground and make a short holiday of their stay in Wales, exploring its beautiful countryside and sampling the best that Cardiff has to offer. The major cricket events that take place in Wales are held at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff, the home of Welsh cricket.
