WHO WE ARE
The England and Wales Cricket Board is the national governing body for all cricket in England and Wales, supporting the game at every level – from grassroots to professional.
We know that Cricket is a force for good and makes an enduring impact on people’s lives. It provides great entertainment. It teaches important skills, both physical and social. It can help inclusion and social cohesion. It’s something for everyone to watch, play or enjoy, across genders, age, disability and diverse communities.Cricket is facing its most significant challenge of our times as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The financial impact on the whole game has already resulted in a £100m loss, and the eventual financial impact could exceed £200m. The long-term impact of the pandemic will be significant, and we must act now if we are to ensure the financial sustainability of cricket in England and Wales. This means protecting the game’s revenue and reducing its cost base by becoming a leaner, more efficient organisation that is properly equipped to safeguard cricket’s long-term future.
Stronger As One Team – We are stronger together. We allow for individual strengths and beliefs but head in the same direction. We respect, support and really listen to each other along the way.
Push New Boundaries – We are bold, brave and curious. We challenge and don’t settle. We forge the future whilst remembering our roots.
Be The Best In The Game – On & Off The Pitch – We train hard. We strive to be our best to help the team be the best. We celebrate our victories and learn from our let downs.
Passion For Play – We are here to inspire & be inspired. We are serious about what we do, but don’t take ourselves seriously. We enjoy the journey and have fun.
