European Cricket Network (ECN) and Cricket Switzerland are delighted to announce the Dream11 European Cricket Series St. Gallen, starting on Monday June 22.

DREAM11 European Cricket Series Cricket Switzerland

The Dream11 European Cricket Series St. Gallen provides an opportunity for seven teams from across Switzerland and numerous Swiss internationals to showcase their skills, competing in 25 exciting, high-octane T10 contests at the Gründenmoos ground in St. Gallen.

Over five days, St. Gallen CC, Zurich Nomads CC, Olten CC, Zurich Crickets CC, Power CC, Winterthur CC and Cossonay CC will compete in 25 T10 matches to establish the Dream11 European Series St. Gallen Champions. “Gründenmoos” is better known to all Swiss sports lovers as the home of CSIO St. Gallen - one of the most illustrious International Equestrian Federation (FEI) show jumping events. This year, Gründenmoos will witness top class cricketing entertainment instead of equestrian excellence.

TV production is in place for exciting T10 action with every game live streamed worldwide on the European Cricket Network and on FanCode - a multi-sport aggregator platform, from the house of Dream Sports for the Indian Sub-Continent.

“Alex Mackay and his experienced team have wide-ranging goals towards developing grass-roots cricket in Switzerland,” said Roger Feiner, CEO of the European Cricket League AG.

“We believe there is a big opportunity in the years to come to make cricket a major summer sport in Switzerland. Quality administrators are running the game there, together with an abundance of talented players who want to take it to the next level. Therefore, we are excited to partner with Cricket Switzerland.”

“The initiative is well supported by the City and Tourism of St. Gallen and various partners of European Cricket. We will experience a Dream11 European Cricket Series event with full LED board coverage - powered by Sportsevision, a long-term partner of the European Cricket League, based in the St. Gallen area. Local TV coverage by TVO and TeleTop will further boost Swiss awareness for cricket,” declared Alex Mackay, President of Cricket Switzerland.

“The T10 format for the Dream11 European Cricket Series is fast and very exciting. We cannot wait for the attention of cricket and sports lovers across the country and internationally to be focused on St. Gallen in Switzerland. Many of the top cricketers in the Swiss domestic game will be present to ensure that the inaugural Dream11 European Cricket Series in Switzerland is a tournament to remember.”

Tune in for Dream11 European Cricket Series live action via the European Cricket Network – the digital home of European cricket and go-to platform to live stream European cricket with live scores and stats available on web and mobile platforms.

Earlier this year, Dream11 joined hands with the European Cricket Network (ECN) to become the Title Partner for the European Cricket Series (ECS) and an Official Partner for the European Cricket League (ECL) tournaments.
