New Cricket Organization Makes Significant Progress. Changes name to American Cricket Federation.
After a busy week, the organizers of the new American cricket organization have made significant progress toward sustainable development of the sport in the United States.
Following detailed discussions, the stakeholders have elected to change the name of the organization to better reflect the nature of the organization: American Cricket Federation. This name reiterates the ACF’s recognition of the role and importance of America’s cricket leagues.
The ACF’s Constitutional Committee also met to continue developing a framework for the new organization. This framework is broadly inclusive of the various cricketing interests in America and incorporates organizational best practices. These best practices include PricewaterhouseCoopers’ recommendations on governance in the recent Woolf Report, Transparency International’s report to the ICC, and the principles espoused by the governing bodies of other sports including soccer, hockey, and rugby, another international sport seeking a greater foothold in the United States.
The Committee also reiterated a commitment to providing value-added services to leagues, clubs, and individual cricketers alike. The Committee is committing resources to ensure that all members receive direct benefits from their membership.
The Constitutional Committee is composed of current and former league presidents, club officers, and an independent advisor. The members of the committee represent cricketers from coast-to-coast and reflect the diverse cultural roots of American cricket.
Several other committees have been convened and are at work on various aspects of the organization. The organization's website is getting ready and will be announced soon.
