CWC22 Volunteer programme launch

We’re calling on Aotearoa locals to help deliver the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 as a tournament-time volunteer.

In 2022, New Zealand will host the ICC Women’s World Cup for the third time, and the 12th instalment overall. This is the pinnacle of women’s cricket globally, and an opportunity for you to join the team behind the tournament.

In 2017, over 180 million people watched the tournament, and this audience will increase in 2022 with all the matches broadcast live for the first time. It is set to be the largest women’s sporting event held in New Zealand, at the forefront of women’s sport, and specifically women’s cricket globally.
