The League Blueprint currently applies to open age weekend league cricket across England and Wales. The recommendations in this League Blueprint are based on feedback from players, particularly from the National Cricket Playing Survey (NCPS) and ECB Player Panels.
The League Blueprint is a series of recommendations that leagues are encouraged to embrace to improve player satisfaction and help keep more players on the pitch and enjoy the game. The impact of each change will vary depending on your own league’s circumstances and we’d suggest taking the opportunity to talk to as many players as possible.

The league was newly formed in 2014 when sides representing 106 clubs came together across 19 divisions as former Everards, Senior & Leicestershire leagues teams came together in the new pyramid.
With the introduction of this new structure a new league executive committee was formed to oversee the league during this transition year and they continue to work tirelessly in the background to ensure the league is as strong as possible. Taking on board feedback from clubs and players through the NCPS, changes to formats, start and finish times have been introduced to improve player experience and reduce the number of people dropping out of the game.
