DUBLIN – Cricket Ireland has today revealed the date, venue and new title sponsor for the only all-Ireland club cup competition being held in 2020 – the Clear Currency All-Ireland T20 Cup will be held on Saturday 19 September at Belmont in Belfast.

In addition to this announcement, an extra match has been added to the schedule this year, with the European Cricket League play-off. In 2019 it was announced that the All-Ireland T20 Cup winners would go on to represent Ireland in the European Cricket League. Last year’s winners, CIYMS, were set to compete this summer until the pandemic saw this year’s competition cancelled. To acknowledge the unfortunate circumstances, this year the 2019 and 2020 Clear Currency All-Ireland T20 Cup winners will play off to identify Ireland’s representative at the 2021 European Cricket League.

The play-off will be played at Belmont on Sunday 20 September – however, if CIYMS win the Cup again in 2020 then no play-off will be required.

All-Ireland T20 Cup competition schedule


The Clear Currency All-Ireland T20 Cup schedule, as it currently stands, is:

Semi-finals:
  • Semi-final 1 – NWCU club v CIYMS* (at Bready, 1pm Saturday 12 September)
  • Semi-final 2 – Cricket Leinster club v Cork County* (at Pembroke 1pm, Sunday 13 September)

  • Final (at Belmont, Saturday 19 September)

  • Play-off for European Cricket League (at Belmont, Sunday 20 September)

* Please note: CIYMS – last year’s winners – have already qualified as the Northern Cricket Union’s representative, and Cork County qualified as Munster Cricket Union’s representative. The representative from North West Cricket Union will be determined on 5 September, while Leinster’s representative will be determined on 12 September.

The Final will be livestreamed, with details announced shortly.


Speaking about the new title sponsorship, Peter O’Flanagan, Chief Executive Officer for Clear Currency, said:

“Clear Currency is delighted to extend its support into the grassroots and domestic Irish cricket set-up with title sponsorship of the All-Ireland T20 Cup.”

“Club cricket is the heart of the game, and clubs are often at the centre of many communities – bringing together people from many backgrounds and interests. The grassroots of the game is also the breeding ground for future internationals, so a competition that brings together the best T20 club teams from around Ireland is something we are proud to support.”

“We wish the four provincial representative teams well, in what we hope will be a showcase end to what has been a challenging season.”

Dennis Cousins, Commercial Director for Cricket Ireland, said:

“We are delighted that Clear Currency has further extended its support of Irish cricket and appreciate the loyalty shown by Peter and his team during what has been a tough season for all. We look forward to a great competition.”

Clear Currency is part of Clear Treasury – an Irish owned business founded by ex-treasury bankers with offices in Dublin and London. It is a boutique treasury and risk management company bringing insight and stability to an uncertain environment. More: https://www.cleartreasury.co.uk/about
