Natwest T20 Blast is being supported pre-launch and during the season by a full digital marketing campaign across ECB channels, Twitter and Facebook (including a new app to invite friends to a game)
2013 saw over 650,000 fans attend the domestic T20 competition (75% up on 2012)
With more matches, a new 'appointment to view' schedule and increased marketing support we expect this figure to rise dramatically, with a target of 1mn attendees per season.
We expect a broad demographic of fans, both male & female, families and groups of friends, predominantly under 45.
