Cricket Hong Kong is excited to announce revised dates for the FairBreak Invitational T20 which will be held in Hong Kong from April 3rd till April 16th, 2023.
The inaugural event took place in Dubai in May 2022 and saw 6 teams made up of 90 players from 35 countries compete in a 12-day event. The event had unprecedented coverage and was broadcast to 141 territories. The global viewing audience has been estimated at between 30-40 million.
The 2023 event hopes to build on the first edition’s success with world-class cricket that promotes equality and provides a platform for female players from all corners of the cricketing world to showcase their skills on the global stage.
Hong Kong will provide a vibrant and unique backdrop for the event that will provide an experience like no other for players and fans alike.
Burji Shroff, chairman of Cricket Hong Kong said, “In light of the increase in opportunities for female players around the world and in consultation with players, partners, and sponsors, we have decided to move the dates of the FairBreak Invitational 2023 from March to April 2023. This time period will enable us to continue to host a world-class event that better ensures the participation of players from across the world.”
FairBreak founder Shaun Martyn said, “From our inception, it has been FairBreak’s mission to maximize opportunities for women and to level the playing field with regards to paying and conditions and to increase the opportunities for women from every country to play cricket.
“We are looking forward to the next edition of FairBreak and hope again to invite players from all cricket-playing nations”, added Burji Shroff.
