Don’t miss the chance to be part of cricket’s big summer in Birmingham

This summer offers the opportunity to join an elite band of volunteers, the Cricketeers, who will be the public face of the ICC Champions Trophy and ICC Women's World Cup.

For the first time in cricket history England and Wales will host two major ICC global events and the Cricketeers will be at the centre of that action, with Edgbaston hosting five games – including a semi final of the ICC Champions Trophy. The Cricketeer programme will unite communities over two months of exciting tournament cricket.

Steve Elworthy, Director of both tournaments, said:

Volunteers will play a vital role in ensuring that the ICC Champions Trophy and ICC Women's World Cup are a huge success. Cricket has a strong tradition of volunteering in England and Wales, so we have seen the contribution they make from grassroots up to international tournaments.
We have already had a great response to our call for Cricketeers, including both people that have volunteered previously and first timers, but we still need others to get involved. Don’t miss your chance to play a key role in helping us deliver two months of exciting cricket in June and July this year.

From spectator services to accreditation, the successful candidates will gain a unique experience working across key areas of two global sporting events.

To become a Cricketeer apply before the closing date which is next Monday (16 January) here:


Neil Snowball, Chief Executive of Edgbaston, said:

This year is the biggest programme of international cricket in Edgbaston’s history, and the volunteers will play an important role in ensuring that we deliver the best experience possible.
Whilst providing a great opportunity to be part of the ICC Champions Trophy and ICC Women’s World Cup, we’re keen to create a legacy by opening the programme up to more opportunities at Edgbaston and within the recreational game.
We’re very excited about the programme and look forward to working with the many applicants in the summer.



The ICC Champions Trophy will be played at Cardiff, Edgbaston and The Oval between 1-18 June 2017 and the ICC Women's World Cup will be staged from 26 June at Bristol, Derby, Leicester and Taunton with the final at Lord's on July 23.
