Australian cricketers to fund $30m into grassroots level

An initiative between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) has announced a new Grassroots Cricket Fund that will be used to improve playing and training facilities around the nation.

The investment of $30million is to be contributed by Australia’s’ male and female professional cricketers, as part of the acrimoniously negotiated memorandum of understanding between Cricket Australia and the players association.

The money can be accessed by clubs who apply to a central infrastructure fund, which can contribute to playing and training facilities as well as equipment grants, and ultimately make the game more accessible to all Australians.

Fast-bowler Josh Hazelwood stated “The players are passionate about giving back to the game that has given us so much…There's a significant need for investment in grassroots cricket, especially for those communities doing it tough at the moment.”
