Gloucestershire have struck agreements with Worcestershire and Hampshire that allow each other’s fans to watch free LV= County Championship cricket.

The deals mean Gloucestershire and Worcestershire members can attend one another's four-day games in 2013 without charge with the exception of games between the duo.

An added bonus for Gloucestershire members is that the same alliance has been formed with Hampshire, who have previously done likewise with Essex, Kent and Sussex, except for matches between the former two.

Gloucestershire commercial director Tim Davies said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Hampshire and Worcestershire on this.

“As well as being able to watch all of Gloucestershire’s home matches, this deal allows our members to take a look at the opposition and enjoy some additional cricket elsewhere."

Zac Toumazi, who holds the same role at Hampshire, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Gloucestershire on this deal.

"Despite the emergence of Twenty20 cricket and all of the Royals’ success in the limited-overs competitions in recent seasons, it is widely agreed that the LV= County Championship is still the cornerstone of domestic cricket.

“As well as being able to watch every moment of Hampshire’s home campaign for promotion to the top flight, this deal allows our members to take a look at the opposition and enjoy some additional cricket elsewhere.”
