The cricket match making LGBTQ+ history

Rob Evans, our County Umpire Education Officer recently took part in BBC Zoom call with representatives from the ECB and two cricket clubs; Graces from London and Unicorns from Birmingham. The meeting was held to discuss the importance of an upcoming match to be held on 23rd May at Weoley Hill. We believe that this will be the first game held anywhere in the world between two LGBTQ+ cricket teams.

The discussion has been released as an article on the BBC Sport website and also as a podcast that can be found at this link

The game is supported by the ECB and will be used to introduce this year’s ECB Rainbow Laces campaign. Rob Evans and Matt Ivory will be officiating.
