World Cup legacy
The Edgbaston Foundation worked with the West Midlands Combined Authority on the inaugural Mayor’s Cricket Cup.
Following England’s thrilling ICC Cricket World Cup victory in 2019, Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, called on grandparents and grandchildren in the region to play cricket on the hallowed turf at Edgbaston.
The inter-generational tournament saw around 80 participants, from the younger and older generation, form 10 teams to compete for the Mayor’s Cricket Cup.
“It was a brilliant day at Edgbaston and I hope every participant – young and old – had a thoroughly good time. Sport has the unique power to unite, and with girls and boys and men and women of all ages and all backgrounds at Edgbaston, I think we proved that to be true.”
