Cricket Verein Zug (CVZ) has been officially registered with Cricket Switzerland and made inroads to new era for cricket lovers in the greater Zug area. Spring coming closer with favorable weather and with that CVZ has embarked on exciting journey of a game that every team member is passionate about.
The journey of CVZ started couple of years back with first Swiss Indoor Premier League (SIPL) in 2019. Post SIPL-2019, few enthusiasts of the game persuaded like minded players to form the Cricket Club to play in Swiss Cricket League. Even Corona pandemic could not stop passionate players and CVZ players continued to work on setting up the practice matches, take several feedbacks from nearby Cricket Clubs like Wettingen CC, Zurich Lions CC, Aargau CC to name a few. Several practice matches with these clubs and introspection sessions carried out to test water levels that CVZ as a team can swim up to. Then Cricket Switzerland recognized CVZ’s effort and accepted our proposal to be an associate member of Cricket Switzerland.
As a part of Cricket Switzerland, CVZ will take part in Cricket Switzerland National League (CSNL 40 over), Mr. Pickwick T20 League and T10 competition. The season for 2022 is already kicked off. Our first official match is scheduled for 24th April 2022.
