CRICKET CANADA STATEMENT ON ALL-STAR T20

CC STAFF
May 13, 2012

Cricket Canada is greatly disappointed by the events following the May 12th All Star T20 event from the Roger’s Centre with respect to unpaid player salaries and have been working with the promoters to resolve the situation amicably. 

We fully understand the frustration felt by the players in question and have reached out to the participating agents to provide copies of their clients’ contracts with event promoters Kat Rose Inc, so that we can engage to explore opportunities to assist in the pursuit of unpaid monies to both the participating players and Cricket Canada.

The event itself was a positive statement for the potential of cricket in Canada with an estimated 12,000 enthusiastic cricket fans in attendance to witness an exciting contest that featured many of our Canadian cricket stars.  We will continue to seek opportunities to host future high profile events and take the necessary steps to ensure that the interests of all stakeholders are met accordingly.
