Cricket World Cup Party FAQs

For attendees

Why are my local clubs running CWC Parties?

  • Most importantly - they'll be offering cricketing opportunities for the younger generation throughout the summer. Cricket doesn't have to end just because school's over!
  • Celebrate what the club has to offer
  • Bring more people to the cricket club – increase revenue, raise awareness of the club, grow club membership, connect existing club members and their families & friends
  • Get involved and help celebrate the legacy of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup
  • Provide a fun, exciting atmosphere in which to experience the excitement of the tournament

 

Where can I find local clubs?

  • Use the ECB Club Finder tool
  • Search social media for #CWC19Clubs – you’ll find local clubs with events going on

 

What do I need to do?

  • Simply turn up, enjoy the activities and bring the whole family along!

 

For Clubs

When should we host our CWC Parties?

  • Whenever you like! We’d recommend capitalising on the culmination of the World Cup following the final on July 14th as this is when we’ll focus a lot of our marketing
  • However, this should be an ongoing offering throughout the rest of the summer, helping you to assist with the legacy of the Cricket World Cup
  • The World Cup 2019 runs from 30th May 2019 to 14th July 2019

 

What should we do to make it a success?

  • You’ll need to make sure people are aware of the opportunities and what is on offer
  • Opportunities are maximised to bring in people, recruit volunteers and increase revenue
  • Utilise the Marketing Packs and new assets we’ve sent you to deck out your club in Cricket World Cup merchandise
  • Promote your opportunities through your social media platforms, using #CWC19Clubs
  • Promote your opportunities through local channels: newspapers, magazines, posters in shops, church noticeboards etc
  • Make sure you’ve provided ample food and drink for your attendees


What could it involve?

  • All Stars 'Have-a-Go' sessions or taster sessions
  • Women and Girls Soft Ball Cricket
  • Showcase playing opportunities – T20 (current v past or parents v children), Vitality U19 Club T20, further junior cricket activities (including All Stars) – matches and coaching etc
  • Food and drink – from different cultures at the club, BBQ, beer festival, ice cream van, fish and chip van etc
  • Broader community engagement – other local sports clubs, crafts and businesses
  • Children’s activities – face-painting, bouncy castle, clowns etc
