What is the Grassroots Cricket Fund?

The Grassroots Cricket Fund (GCF) has been established by Australia’s cricketers to strengthen grassroots cricket for generations to come, and will commit up to $30 million from player payments to be invested to support and strengthen Australian community cricket.

The GCF is a joint partnership of the players, the Australian Cricketers’ Association and Cricket Australia, all working to ensure cricket clubs around the country maintain their position as pillars of local communities by providing equipment and facility upgrade grants.
