2024 Cricket Collective Awards

Nominations for 2024 are now open!

The Cricket Collective Awards are an annual celebration of the critical work our volunteers play across the recreational game. Cricket wouldn’t exist without you.

The 2024 National Cricket Collective Awards will be recognising more volunteers than ever before, with 15 award categories as we join together with the ECB Coach Awards and introduce a new Metro Bank Champion of Girls' Cricket Award.

So, if you know someone who deserves for their dedication to the game to be recognised, be sure to nominate them today!

All nominees and winners will be invited to the Cricket Collective Celebration Event at the Utilita Bowl Fireworks in November *

Every individual who nominates someone for an award will be automatically entered into a random draw to win a variety of prizes including signed shirts and tickets.
