The Cricketer Village Cup

The Cricketer Village Cup is inextricably linked with the English summer and has been ever since its conception in 1972. Administered by The Cricketer, this summer-long knockout tournament celebrates the grassroots game at its rural heart.

It is the biggest amateur cricket competition in the world and sees in excess of 300 clubs from all corners of the British Isles battle for the chance to ‘live the dream’ by playing on the hallowed turf in a showcase Lord’s final.
