The City Cricket Academy has teamed up with cricketing superstar Matthew Hoggard MBE in a new venture specialising in international tours, masterclasses and coaching.
Training and playing in a different country in unfamiliar conditions not only develops cricketing skills but it also enriches the life of a young cricketer. We believe it is very positive for cricketers to experience different conditions, environments and cultures as part of their progression and development.
That’s why the City Cricket Academy are continuing our well-established tradition of staging successful international tours. We are now proud to be teaming up with former England Test star Matthew Hoggard MBE in our international tours programme in a partnership which will further enhance the touring experiences we offer.
The 2006 Wisden Cricketer of the Year is one of the most successful cricketers to have played for England, playing a major role in the historic victory over Australia in 2005 in their first Ashes series success since 1986-87.
Matthew, who finished with 248 Test victims and is still joint seventh in the all-time list of England’s highest wicket-takers, has said the tours represent the perfect opportunity to pass on his skills and techniques to the next generation.
The tours are open to all ages and abilities. They take place over the winter or early spring to prepare players for the cricket season and will normally be for a period of up to 12 days or more. We also welcome the opportunity to organise bespoke tours for clubs, schools or groups, bringing an experience of a lifetime.
Our tours are made possible by our links with various leading academies and institutions in Test-playing nations.
One of our main venues is Dubai’s ICC Cricket Academy described as the world’s leading cricket development, performance and education institution.
The facilities at the ICC Academy are state-of-the-art and purpose built with every element designed to enable each player to maximise their performance. Whether an international superstar or a young player starting out in the game, the ICC Academy presents a unique environment to play, train and learn.
As well as Dubai, other touring destinations will include India, South Africa, Sri Lanka and more. Our overseas tours have been successful in the past and we are now in a position to deliver an even more enhanced international cricketing experience to the next generation of cricketers. Please contact us to find out more.
