Congratulations to all our graduates – the degrees you leave with, and the skills you developed as cricketers will help you greatly in life. As Joseph O’Neill said in “Netherland” :—- “For what is an innings if not a singular opportunity to face down, by dint of effort, skill and self-mastery, the variable world ?”
As many of you have said,some of your best college memories are playing in American College Cricket tournaments.
So below is the tentative schedule for more great memories this Fall in our Regional & Ivy League.Championships, presented by Coca Cola, with supporting sponsor Dish Network. Dates may be changed based on TV Asia production scheduling, exams, weather or other reasons.

Before, & in between these Championships,colleges will play “Home & Away” matches against each other (already begun in the Spring Semester, with Boston University currently leading & Harvard 2nd in the Points Standings). All matches are scored & carried on CricHQ.
If your club has a Facebook page, it MUST post AmericanCollegeCricket.com articles, for other clubs our players should be posting our articles on their personal profiles sometimes, to be eligible to play.
A team must play in the Championship in their Conference, & may also play in any other Regional they would like to enter. Each team must play a minimum of 3 Home & Away matches to be eligible for the Nationals, & at least 1 before the Regionals.
