Cricket, undoubtedly, is one of the most popular and loved sports across the globe. Cricket happens to be the national sport of several nations in all the continents. Euro T20 Slam is the first ever cricket league in Europe – the region that gave birth to the concept of leagues – and also the first one to be played in multiple countries.
ET20S has more than just one ‘firsts’. In this tournament, nations and not cities will be pitted against one another. ET20S also happens to be the first ever league to be sanctioned by the Cricket Ireland board along with the support from Netherlands Cricket and Cricket Scotland boards. ET20S is being promoted and organized by GS Holding Inc. and Woods Entertainment. The world is perhaps going to experience cricket in a magnitude never witnessed before.
The first-ever continent-based cricket league will unite the best cricketers from around the world in 6 teams and put up the strongest battle in the history of cricket. Euro T20 Slam aims to captivate attention globally and bring the fans of the cricketing world together.
The goals of Euro T20 Slam are promoting healthy competition and celebration of cricket. The 30 league matches and 3 knockouts – consisting of 2 teams from each of the three countries – will be played in the stadiums in Ireland, the Netherlands and Scotland.
We extend our invites to all Full and Associate Board members of the ICC to truly achieve the aim of a Global Cricket League! A strategic team composition will ensure participation of players from all the cricket boards. Legends of cricket will form an exclusive advisory panel for ET20S.
