The ICC Cricket World Cup is coming to England and Wales in the summer of 2019, and will be the ‘world’s greatest cricket celebration’. This once in a lifetime event provides us with a unique opportunity to grow and diversify the game, and we are looking to engage over 1 million 5-12-year-olds throughout the World Cup.
As such, we are excited to announce that the Cricket World Cup Schools Programme is now live! The programme will capture the imagination of teachers, students and their parents across the country by bringing the fun and excitement of the Cricket World Cup into the classroom and the playground. We also want to make cricket more accessible to a broad range of schools across the country.
To register for the programme, sign up for FREE to the Cricket World Cup Portal (hosted by Chance to Shine). You’ll find some great cricket-themed resources and some brilliant Tournament Time opportunities.
The Cricket World Cup is partnering with Chance to Shine and the ECB to deliver the ‘World Cup Schools Programme’. This will see us bring together the expertise of Chance to Shine and the ECB, as well as the excitement of the World Cup to truly transform cricket in schools for one magical year.
With this partnership, World Cup Schools is being hosted on the existing Chance to Shine teachers’ portal, ensuring that all schools in England & Wales can access our brilliant World Cup resources, projects and competitions – for FREE.
