The ECB T20 City Cup returns for 2019. The main aim of the programme is to identify players, with talent, who have not played within the County Age Group system, enabling them to potentially fast track not only in their own counties but nationally with the opportunity to be part of a formal talent identification process. Details of the ECB City Cup programme in Leicester and how to get involved are below.


Leicester open training sessions on Monday 17th and Monday 24th June, 6.30 – 8.30pm at the Fischer County Ground, Grace Road.

Full Qualification Criteria

  • Aged 15 to 18 years old (not born before 1st Sep ’99 and not born after 31st Aug ’03)

  • Not playing any County Age Group (CAG) representative cricket or Academy/Second XI cricket

  • Has not been involved in CAG cricket for the last 2 seasons

  • Premier League players are eligible

  • Players must live or play in the City’s defined postcode (LE1 – LE5)

The open training sessions will be followed by a period of coached training sessions (led by ECB Level 2 & 3 coaches) at The Fischer County Ground and various match play opportunities. A team will then be selected to represent Leicester in the ECB City Cup Area Finals in July.
