UPDATE ON INDOOR WORLD CUP AND JUNIOR WORLD SERIES IN 2021

10 NOVEMBER 2020

As the world continues to struggle with Covid-19 and in these unprecedented times the WICF Board met to discuss the way forward for Indoor Cricket and our international calendar.

Amateur international sport has been one of the hardest hit by this current situation we all find ourselves in. Each of our counties are in differing stages of lock down / alerts. International travel is currently not an option for amateur teams. Having said that the world is slowly opening with many travel bubbles already in existence. The Board met and discussed a model that could enable us to hold our World Cups / World Series and determine some time frames for these.

The main parameters that we talked about are as follows:

  1. Health and Safety of our players and officials is paramount.
  2. Our aim is not to exclude any country from competing in our events.
  3. No quarantine in either direction.
  4. Is it financially viable (i.e. are airfares and restrictions financially prohibitive?)

As the situation is very fluid and is changing rapidly on a weekly / monthly basis the Board felt it was important to release an initial plan for 2021. The Board has committed to meet monthly and send out updates in the form of these releases.

While the WICF continues to evaluate the viability of holding these events in 2021 we have proposed the following:

World Cup 2021 Australia 18th to 25th September 2021

Grades: Open Men’s and Women’s. 22 and Under Boy’s and Girls as per the release earlier in the year....
