PCA PRESS RELEASE
Newly expanded PCA England Masters programme provides options to suit all requirements.
The PCA England Masters are looking forward to getting back on the road in 2021, visiting clubs and schools across the country with a newly expanded programme offering three event formats and making the legends more accessible than ever.
For nearly 20 years the Masters have been taking part in showcase events for local communities. In the last four years alone the squad of former international stars have helped their hosts raise in excess of £700,000 between them, before the Covid-19 pandemic wiped out the entire 2020 season.
The Masters are planning to return with a bang in 2021, and host clubs will now have the option to choose between a traditional match, tournament or visits by some of our star players, as explained by the legends themselves…

Former England international and Master skipper Alex Tudor is excited to be involved with the revamped programme: “As captain of the PCA England Masters, I can safely say that the squad can’t wait to get back out there as soon as we can and enter a new era for the Masters programme.
“With matches, tournaments and visits now on offer, we’re hoping that 2021 will be a blockbuster season when it comes to raising money for grassroots cricket!”
