Financial Support and Advice

With the cricket season currently on pause, we understand that financial pressures are some of the most prevalent concerns for our club network. This page will help to signpost you to some key financial support resources.


ECB emergency funding grants

Cricket clubs and leagues are now able to apply for three new funding schemes specifically designed to help see them through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


Fundraise through Spacehive

As many traditional fundraising events have been cancelled, the ECB are extending a £100 pledge to all clubs who are interested in running a COVID-19 crowdfunding campaign through Spacehive. Follow the link below to express your interest and to find out more about the process.

NatWest financial guidance toolkit

Given the impact that coronavirus has had on the season we have developed a practical financial guide with NatWest to help support your club over the next few months and longer term.  Amid all the uncertainty this guide provides some useful hints, tips, templates, resources and links to available grants and funding to enable your club and its members to weather the storm.  We will be revising the guidance in this document based on the government advice and continuing to share relevant advice through our club communications channels.

Sport England Support

Sport England are a key partner for the game, and they have compiled a comprehensive list of financial resources for recreational sports clubs tackling the impacts of COVID-19.


Local support for clubs and communities

Across England and Wales, we have a high-quality network of County Cricket Boards. These organisations work to support and nurture the grassroots game. In addition to circulating ECB resources, they also develop and share their own expertise and materials to support their local communities and clubs.


Together Through This Test

Together Through This Test is a nationwide campaign by the ECB to shine a light on the amazing work that has taken place across the game in response to COVID-19, as well as informing the public about the different resources cricket is making available to them.
