Cricket Collective Awards

Recognising those volunteers who give their time to the game of cricket.

Opportunities to nominate volunteers for the ECB Cricket Collective Cricket Awards will reopen during the 2024 summer.

The ECB Cricket Collective Awards aim to reflect the achievements and efforts of the cricket community in their work off the field and provide you with a fantastic opportunity to nominate and recognise the volunteers who make cricket possible.

To say a big thank you to all those who have gone above and beyond in 2023, we will invited all nominees and a plus one to a Royal London Cup game at the Seat Unique Stadium on August 22nd.  Check out the video below and news story here, which captured the celebratory event.
