Does your local cricket club need help improving facilities, increasing female participation or attracting events? Round 2 of the NSW ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Legacy Fund has opened, giving cricket clubs and councils across NSW the chance to apply for up to $2 million in grants.

The Legacy Fund is part of the NSW Government’s successful bid for the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 which will see $6 million invested over three years in new facilities and programs to drive participation in cricket.

Round 1 of the grant program in 2018 saw 55 projects receive a total of $1.96 million in funding.

To celebrate the opening of Round 2, Minister for Sport John Sidoti joined the u/11s girls cricket team from Briars Concord for a game of social cricket after they were part of a competition established with funding from Round 1 of the grants program. Check out the match highlight!

Applications for Round 2 are open until Monday, 8 July 2019.
