Men’s First Team

Kent Cricket will promote the home of the club on the upcoming FGS Plant Tour to the West Indies.

Visit Canterbury’s logo will proudly appear on the Samurai Sportswear training kit to promote the Canterbury district to overseas visitors.

Kent Spitfires stars modelled the new kit outside Canterbury Cathedral, part of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Site along with St Augustine’s Abbey & St Martin’s Church.

Daniel Bell-Drummond, Calum Haggett, Matt Hunn and Imran Qayyum visited Canterbury’s Visitor Information Centre at The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge jetting out to Antigua later this month to play teams from the Caribbean and the Americas in the Regional Super50 tournament.

The city council wants to use the tour to highlight the historic city’s attractions for visitors, including The Beaney, Canterbury Roman Museum, the Canterbury Tales Visitor Attraction and other cultural centres including The Marlowe Theatre and The Gulbenkian at the University of Kent.

Outside of the city, the Canterbury district boasts beautiful countryside and coastal resorts including Herne Bay and Whitstable, with something for everyone to enjoy during their stay.

Chairman of Canterbury City Council’s Regeneration and Property Committee, Cllr Ben Fitter-Harding said: “By showcasing Canterbury through cross-promotion with Kent Cricket, we hope to encourage more overnight stays in the area so visitors can truly enjoy all this district has to offer.

“Tourism is now worth an estimated £450million to the Canterbury district’s economy and supports 15% of all local jobs.

“These figures have grown over the last few years and we hope that, by working with Kent Cricket, we will see continued growth in years to come.”
