Cricket as a sport and outdoor activity is very popular in both Australia and New Zealand with the national men's and women's teams of both countries performing at the pinnacle of the international game.
Through the partnership we will be working on two fronts:
1) to help inform Czech-based Aussies and Kiwis that their time in the Czech Republic does not have to be without cricket, with regular senior and junior tournaments being played
2) to help introduce local Czech people to the Australian and New Zealand pastime and our beloved sport, cricket.
Czech Cricket has been steadily expanding since its formation in Prague in 2000. We coordinate and support local international and Czech State schools towards participation in the Czech Cricket Winter, Spring and Summer tournaments, which have been showing fantastic growth since their introduction in 2012.

The expansion of these tournaments alongside the introduction of an additional team in the menís game and a major facilities development overhaul project mean that 2014 is set to be a fantastic year for cricket in the Czech Republic.
