The New Zealand locals have a chance to be involved with the Cricket World Cup 2022 Crew and be a part of the World Cup action that is set to take place next year. The crew will take into consideration 750 volunteers when New Zealand will be hosting the 31-day 31-matches from 4th March to 3 April 2022, across 6 major cities.
The six cities that will be hosting the World Cup are Auckland, Tauranga, Christchurch, Hamilton, Wellington, and Dunedin. The power pack performances and battles between countries will be witnessed in these six venues.
Former Captain of the New Zealand team Suzie Bates was ready to invite volunteers to apply for the tournament at Tauranga’s Mount Maunganui beach to commemorate the launch of the CWC22 volunteer program.
“As players, we know the role of tournament-time volunteers is extremely important. The whole fan experience of a global event such as this one relies just as much on the manaakitanga (hospitality) and kind hearts of volunteers as it does on the performances seen out on the pitch,” Bates said.
“Meeting some of the fantastic Kiwis that have already put their hand up to help deliver the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in 2022 is very humbling. Seeing just how excited they are about the tournament really hits home that next year’s World Cup on home soil will be a special occasion for everyone here in Aotearoa (New Zealand),” she added.
