The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), the governing body for cricket in England and Wales, is planning to run a series of regional consultation workshops, including one at London’s Kia Oval Cricket Ground on 13th July from 6pm-8.30pm, to help improve its understanding and levels of engagement with South Asian cricket fans across the country.
The ECB wants to ensure that cricket is a game for everyone; full of great experiences whether people play, watch, follow, or work in the game.
To help with this, the ECB wants to hear feedback, ideas and thoughts on how cricket can do this for London’s South Asian communities. They want to hear from people from Afghani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Nepalese, Pakistani, or Sri Lankan communities.
Whether you are involved in cricket or not; you could be a community leader, regular player, volunteer, coach, school teacher, an armchair fan or a parent of a cricket mad child – everyone is welcome to attend.
As well as London, the workshops will take place in seven other regional venues in Birmingham, Bradford, Dewsbury, East London, Leicester, Manchester and Sheffield. They are designed to encourage local communities to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences on playing, attending or following the game.
