Organisers of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 (CWC22) are thrilled to announce that 1000 Kiwi have now signed up as ‘CWC22 Champions’ in support of the tournament.

Launched in February, the community engagement campaign has struck a chord with Kiwi from all over Aotearoa – each one helping to spread the word as the pinnacle event in women’s ODI cricket approaches (4 March – 3 April 2022).

CWC22 Chief Executive Andrea Nelson says: “We’re ecstatic with the uptake of this fantastic campaign, which brings the World Cup action right to the heart of our communities.

“From our leaders within the Beehive to sideline supporters at local clubs, we’re pleased to see so many New Zealanders embracing the opportunity to back what is the first World Cup to come to Aotearoa since the global pandemic struck,” she says.

With the initial goal of recruiting an army of 1000 tournament champions achieved organisers have now set their sights on doubling the target as the tournament rides a growing groundswell of support.

From sports legends to comedy royalty, Aotearoa’s biggest names have already lined up to show their support for the best cricketers in the world – and they want you to be on their team.

Those who sign up will join the team of familiar faces such as Sir Richard Hadlee, Dame Valerie Adams, Kane Williamson, Toni Street, Madeleine Sami and Laura McGoldrick.

The list of prominent Champions includes many former WHITE FERNS, several whom were a part of the 2000 World Cup winning squad.

One of many proud Champions, Laura McGoldrick, says: “I am not surprised 1000 people signed up so quickly – I have no doubt there will be more.

“I cannot wait for the CWC22! We saw first-hand in 2015 how special World Cups in your own back yard are. We have a brilliant WHITE FERNS side taking on the best teams in the world with amazing women who will inspire the next generation of young cricketers – and I for one cannot wait to cheer them on.”

The first 1000 people who have signed up as CWC22 Champions will receive an exclusive tournament merchandise pack as well as priority access to events in the lead-up to the World Cup.

Aotearoa locals can sign up to be a CWC22 Champion here to get amongst the World Cup action.
