SUSSEX CRICKET AND PROPOSED DOMESTIC RESTRUCTURE

15-Sep-2016

The Sussex Cricket strategy is “Inspiring a Passion for Cricket – in the Heart of the Community” and is aligned to the ECB strategy " Cricket Unleashed" for wider engagement throughout England and Wales.

We recognise the current financial risks to Counties, including over dependence on international income, and the opportunities to develop interest in the game, including the changing media landscape.

The Board is open to considering change in the schedule but our strong preference is that domestic tournaments should feature all 18 First Class Counties.

We respect the consensus view of the First Class Counties and the MCC, that was expressed on 14 September, to ask the ECB Executive to work up details of a new eight team t20 competition. This new tournament would be staged in addition to the existing NatWest t20 Blast. There is much work to carry out on many issues before the game will be in a position to give agreement to the proposed new schedule.

Sussex Cricket will continue to participate in this process in a constructive way.

Further information will be released to our Members and supporters when it is available.
