Glamorgan players during 2015 season
Glamorgan finished fourth in Division Two of the County Championship in 2015

Glamorgan will start their 2016 County Championship campaign at home to Leicestershire on 17 April 2015 after sitting out the first round of four-day action.

The Welsh County's T20 Blast campaign gets underway at Surrey in May.

And their One Day Cup fixtures start at holders Gloucestershire on Monday, 6 June in Cardiff.

They will prepare for the season with a first-class friendly against the students of Cardiff MCCU on 11 April.

The Welsh county finished fourth in Division Two of the County Championship in 2015.

A major change to next year's competition will be the removal of the coin toss to determine which team chooses to either bat or bowl first. Instead, the visiting captain will be given a free choice.

Around the grounds

Glamorgan will spend the same amount of time at their out-grounds as they did in 2015.

They will play Championship games at Colwyn Bay on 17 July and at Swansea on 3 August, following a One-Day Cup match at St Helen's.

The only away out-ground that Glamorgan will visit is Richmond, home of London Welsh RFC, for a T20 fixture against Middlesex on 8 July.

One extra fixture sees the county taking on Pakistan A on 15 July.

The only major change in the structure of the fixture list sees the first four One-Day Cup matches being played in early June rather than starting at the end of July.

Glamorgan supporters can also plan for four-day visits to Hove and Worcester after the relegation of Sussex and Worcestershire from the first division of the Championship.
