Christchurch Metro Cricket will be running the yr 9/10 Festival of Cricket (FOC) late February / early March.  The FOC is a 20/20 competition run over three Sundays with two games played each day. The dates for the FOC are 28th February, 6th & 13th March and will be held at Christchurch Boys High School.  

Even though the representative season is over the FOC gives players the opportunity for more cricket in a competitive environment but without selection pressure.  The format of 20/20 is a great chance for players to express themselves in a format that will become more common throughout the youth competitions.


To register for the FOC you must complete the online nomination process.  Please note that online nominations are now open.  To nominate yourself please go to


Nominations will be collated and teams will announced on the Christchurch Metro website by Friday 19th February at 5pm.


The cost of the FOC is $60 per player which will cover balls, ground hire, coaches, and umpires.  Payment instructions are outlined in the confirmation email, once the nomination process has been completed.
