Last year the North East Championship became the first ever cricket to be televised in USA & Canada as American College Cricket once more, this time with TV Asia, raised the bar for the game.
Rutgers and NYU-Polytechnic played the first televised domestic cricket match ever in USA & Canada.
In March 2010 we did the first webstream, and we’re happy to see others follow since.
For the 2012 North East Championship, sponsored by Coca Cola, TV Asia will televise the Semis & Finals of Oct 14, as well as 2 matches from Oct 13. There will also be a roving camera on the other days. Below are the teams.
Here also are the designs for teams getting new uniforms, - no team can play unless in proper uniform (you will be on TV). The other teams will be wearing their uniforms from the American College Cricket Spring Break Championship.
Each team must also complete their “Likes” to qualify to play:
Reminder : we don’t play invisible cricket, & you can’t just show up to play, you must promote what we do - without a strong national organization, your club is a single voice in the wind. Start earning your BONUS POINTS now by promoting AmericanCollegeCricket.com articles on Facebook, Twitter & other Social Media.
I understand some schools just resumed this week, but please complete what you have to do ASAP, or you don’t play. ALL players must “Like” our FB Fanpage.
