Glamorgan submit bid for tier one professional women’s cricket team in 2025

Glamorgan have submitted a bid to have a tier one professional women’s cricket team by 2025.

The England and Wales Cricket Board has announced plans for up to £5m of extra yearly funding in women’s cricket.

The plans also involved having three tiers in the sport from the year 2025, and counties are currently being asked to submit tier one applications.

The bid could be “transformational” for the sport in Wales, says Glamorgan chief executive Dan Cherry.

Unsuccessful applicants will be invited to fill semi-professional and amateur slots in tiers two and three, a process expected to be complete by September, 2024.
