ICC 360 REVIEW TOUR TO NIGERIA
Nigeria Cricket Federation is set to host the International Cricket Council (ICC) on a program tagged 360 Review. The ICC 360 review is a holistic assessment and screening of Cricket activities in Nigeria.
The Last 2 years of the present administration led by Prof. Yahaya Adam Ukwenya, has seen the growth and development of the game in the country metamorphose into a higher stratosphere thereby putting Nigeria on the global map of Cricket in the world. Recent successes both on and off the field can be attributed to the structure, focus and corporate governance of the Board, improvement in administration, Technical skill acquisition, Educational programs and lots more.
The ICC 360 Review team will arrive Nigeria on Sunday 16th June 2019 and is expected to have interactions with Federation Board Members, Officials from the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Staff and administrators, sponsors and potential sponsors, members of the Press/Media, Stake holders, Players and non-players of the sports, parents of players and whomever deemed necessary to get the required information needed.
Alongside the 360 review, the NCF grassroots development program will also be held in some parts of Nigeria. Some of the grassroots events will reflect the new concept of ICC CRIIIO program. The CRIIIO is ultimately changing the narrative of the game that is deemed is ‘inaccessible and/or expensive to play, rather reflecting the truth which is ‘Cricket can be played anywhere and by anyone at any time; according to Andy Hobbs “Senior Manager, Development ICC”.
Venue for the CRIIIO event is the Velodrome, Package A’ National Stadium Abuja, on Tuesday 18th June 2019 at 9.am prompt.
The ICC team is expected to be in Nigeria for 1 week touring Abuja and Lagos State. The team will spend 3 days in Abuja before heading to Lagos on Wednesday where the consultation and interactions will continue before departing on Sunday 23rd June 2019.
