Christchurch Metro Cricket is thrilled to have confirmed the commencement of the first ever Ethnic Cricket Festival in Christchurch.

The make-up of our Saturday competitions is becoming increasingly diverse and we are now providing the opportunity for different community and cultural groups to take part against each other in a sport they are passionate.

The competition will be played on Sunday's from 29 October to 10 December at Hagley Park, with teams playing two Twenty20 games each day.

Entries are invited from all ethnic groups in Christchurch, which will make for an exciting and colorful competition.

Can those representing the Pacific nations get one over those from the sub-continent?  Could the European nations show they reign over Africa?  Could those from the America's get one over their close rivals from the West indies?  Only time will tell.

See the flyer below for more information.
