With the ICC World Cup and the Ashes taking place in England this year, 2019 promises to be a huge summer for cricket. NatWest CricketForce will help clubs maximise the opportunities this will create. The focus will be on projects to digitise cricket clubs or improve catering provisions. From improving your club’s internet connection, creating an area for people to socialise and watch cricket on a big screen or introducing digital points of sale for faster and easier payments to installing a new kitchen or creating an outdoor social area for BBQ’s.
The ECB would like clubs to partake in projects which are going to attract more people to the cricket club and ones which will create a social, welcoming environment for families. You can still apply for up to £1000 funding towards these projects by going to https://clubs.cricketworldcup.com/club-fund
NatWest CricketForce is a nationwide initiative aimed at cricket clubs. The programme is designed to bring clubs and local communities closer together, and ensure grounds and facilities are ready for the new season.
