PCA England Masters events are a true celebration of cricket – the grassroots and elite games coming together to entertain, inspire and unite communities in a truly unique way.
For nearly 20 years the Masters have been traveling the length and breadth of the country to play in showcase events at clubs and schools each summer. These international legends certainly know what it takes to put on a show for the crowds, and in doing so have proudly helped raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for the grassroots game.
With three event formats to choose from there is something to suit all requirements – whether it be a full match, tournament, or visits by some of our star players.

PCA England Masters Hosting Options

PCA England Masters Match

This showcase Masters event will see your club side take on the legends in a full 11-a-side game. First up the players will join your juniors for a coaching session, passing on tips and inspiring the next generation, before attending a fundraising lunch; hosting tables and taking part in a Q&A. The teams will then take to the pitch for a T20 or Hundred match, giving your players the chance to test themselves in front of the crowds against some of England’s greatest ever stars.

PCA England Masters Tournament

A PCA England Masters tournament is all about participation and giving as many club cricketers as possible the opportunity to take to the field alongside their heroes. With 8 Masters players split amongst the 4 competing teams, this is perfect for a club with a large playing membership, or for multiple local sides to join forces for a joint event. The legends will attend a pre-tournament lunch to help raise crucial funds, before the crowds are entertained with a semi-final and final.

PCA England Masters Visits

The legends’ talents extend far beyond entertaining on the pitch, and so these PCA England Masters visits offer the opportunity to get the players’ involved in a whole host of activities at your club. Two players will head to your ground for 4 hours. Perhaps you’ll get them involved in coaching the juniors, umpiring an exhibition match or attending a fundraising lunch… or all three! We know each club has a different drive for inviting the players along, and so what the day looks like is up to you.

A Unique Fundraising Opportunity

The primary aim of the PCA England Masters since it’s inception in 2002 has been to give recreational clubs a vehicle to raise significant funds. In 2017 alone, the 15 host clubs raised an incredible £230,000 between them. Every penny raised stays with the clubs and is spent entirely at their discretion, often being used for facility redevelopments, investment into coaching and equipment, as well as to support local charitable causes.
There are various ways to raise funds throughout the event, and the PCA will provide examples of what particularly successful clubs have done in the past, to ensure your event helps to secure the future of your club for years to come.
