*Please see here for full details.
The dates and fixtures for the sixth Embassy Cup are now confirmed with the weekend of the 28th and 29th October set to host the biggest domestic event of the year at the Sano International Cricket Ground.
As always, eight teams will represent different cricketing cultures from around the world, while this year the format has changed to T10 to allow eight matches per day to be played with each match lasting 90 minutes.
The matches will start from 9:30am on both days, while on Sunday 29th the Tanuma Furosato Matsuri will also be held at the SICG, bringing thousands of people from the local area to experience the fun of the weekend.
Matches should all conclude by 4:15pm and the Saturday evening will be full of festivities including live music, a prize draw and a raffle will run to raise funds for two children’s charities, to be announced in due course.
During the weekend there will be areas for people to play games and enjoy the food and atmosphere, while there will also be cultural displays from many of the participating teams as the event looks to be a true celebration of crickets’ international appeal.
We urge all fans of cricket and internationalisation to help us “Fill The Stands” at the SICG and create a true carnival. While general admittance to the event is free, details of how to purchase tickets for the stands and glamping areas will be released soon.
