If you’re a massive fan of the gentleman’s game then the Momentum Cricket Sixes, presented by SA Cricket stars Graeme Smith, Mark Boucher and Justin Kemp will be just the event for you.
The tournament takes place at the Claremont Cricket Club in Cape Town on the 14th December 2013 and will see twelve cricket teams go head-to-head in a unique spectator experience. Each team will consist of a ten man squad including a selection of current SA Cricket Legends such as Dale Steyn, Graeme Smith and Morne Morkel and several renowned past players such as Shaun Pollock, Jonty Rhodes and Gary Kirsten to name a few. In an exciting twist to the tournament, teams will have the opportunity to bid for cricket legends for their teams at an invite-only cocktail function the night before the tournament with all proceeds from the auction going to charity (sounds like the IPL).
The day will consist of plenty of cricket action, live entertainment by one of our favourite acts, GoodLuck. The theme is “Lords & Ladies – Summer Vintage Style” – so don’t show up looking like a scrub.
“After months of planning we are thrilled to finally launch the Momentum Cricket Sixes”, said SA Cricket Captain and co-founder of the event Graeme Smith. “The event has been a dream of ours for years and we are so excited to see it come to fruition. There aren’t many opportunities for social cricket and professional cricket to come together and we felt this would be a fun and exciting way to make it happen.”
Over and above the cricket tournament there will be a strong development component to the event. The player auction proceeds will go towards the Sporting Chance Development Foundation, an organisation that conceptualises and facilitates some of the country’s biggest development sports programmes including Calypso Cricket and Street Cricket and offers bursaries to talented cricketers. Additionally Sporting Chance will be hosting a development cricket clinic on the day, which will give the opportunity for the cricket Legends to lend their skills to a group of less fortunate young cricket stars.
Momentum Cricket Sixes have announced Gunn & Moore as official apparel sponsors as well as further sponsorships from Coca-Cola, Tsogo Sun, Supersport, Pernod Ricard and Castle.
