TRNC Cricket has a permanent

sports ground


Cricket in North Cyprus took a huge leap forward this week, when a historic deal was struck with AYSK for their Alsancak Stadium to become the sport’s permanent ground.

Yesterday the 10th October 2015, TRNC Cricket Association pitch manager Tad Haigh delightedly explained, finding grounds for the ever expanding cricket league hadTRNC National Cricket team image 2 become a major headache. Endless changes of venues at short notice had dogged our games since we began 18 months ago and now it’s a huge relief to have a home.

Association Chairman Nigel Holman said, he was particularly excited to be able to play at Alsancak, as it’s a perfect venue, being large with plenty of space beyond the boundary for the big sixes and with its refurbished comfortable stadium, it’s great for our supporters.

Sunday 18th October, the Creditwest North Cyprus Cricket League resumes with two T20 games at the Alsancak Stadium:

13.30      Near East University v Cyprus International University

When we asked Vice Chairman Danish Afridi about this Sunday’s games he told us, the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East teams now have plenty of experience having been amongst the original league’s sides, but newcomers CIU are catching them up and Istanbul Technical University, whose class players won the latest TRNC tennis ball cricket tournament, could be one to particularly watch out for.
