As the Notts Outlaws embark on

their 14thT20 campaign, the off field

team will as ever be rooting for Mick

Newell and the team, as they aim

to turn their impressive tournament

record into a finals day appearance.

Dan Christian, the Outlaws’ newly-

appointedT20 captain, will aim to

offer explosive entertainment during

this year’s competition.

We also remain determined to ensure

that the experience of a matchday

at Trent Bridge begins from the

moment you arrive, right through to

the post match autograph signings

(and selfies) that now characterise the

NatWest T20 Blast in Nottingham.

With that in mind, we are adding

a cricket activity zone on the TBI

Courtyard, allowing spectators of

all ages and abilities to have a go

at batting, bowling, catching and

throwing throughout the event.

The Courtyard is perfectly positioned

directly behind what will, for the first

time in 2016, be our alcohol-free

family area, theWilliam Clarke Stand.

With freestyle entertainers, catering

units and distribution of a range of

giveaways from the giant helmet, the

carnival atmosphere in and around

that area before the match will be well

worth sampling.

enjoyable for families is a key factor

in continuing to grow our NatWest

T20 Blast audience, building on the

success of 2015 when we attracted

13,582 for the match against the

Derbyshire Falcons.

We all remember the last-ball victory

fondly, but the entertainment began

long before that, when, 90 minutes

prior to the start of the game, the

match production got underway.

Centred around the big screen - but

also including music, interviews and

team news featuring Colin Hazelden

as MC - our pre-match entertainment

is a key reason why supporters are

choosing to arrive progressively earlier

with each passing summer.

The build-up will climax with a

showing of Cricket Has Landed 3, the

concluding instalment in our trilogy

of promotional videos.

Jake Ball, Steven Mullaney, Riki

Wessels and SamWood have starred

in the production this year, which

will, again, be a terrific asset to our

marketing team as we aim to further

strengthenT20 cricket’s position as

Nottingham’s firm fixture for Friday
