How we're supporting Australian cricket

Supporting the future of cricket in Australia

As proud partners of Cricket Australia for over 30 years and supporters of the women’s team for the last 20, we’re delighted to see how far the game has come. And we’re not finished yet.

We believe cricket is a sport for all and we want cricket to be the most inclusive sport in Australia. That's why our partnership with Cricket Australia is the single largest investment in women’s sport in Australia. We've also increased our support for diversity and community cricket programs. 

Growing cricket for girls

We recognise the importance in creating more opportunities for girls of all ages to play, compete and learn and are very proud to be the principal partner of Cricket Australia’s ‘Growing Cricket for Girls Fund’.

Our support can help make a positive difference and will give girls from all cultures and of all abilities the chance to step up to the crease and get involved in one of Australia’s favourite sports.

A Sport For All

In partnering with Cricket Australia’s ‘A Sport For All’ program, we've extended our commitment to Indigenous, multicultural, disabled and LGBTI community cricket initiatives.

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the famous all-Aboriginal team tour of England in 1868, CommBank and Cricket Australia supported the current national Indigenous women’s and men’s squads of England to play in 2018.

And for the first time, Australia’s Blind, Deaf and Intellectual Disability teams no longer have to pay to represent their country as we are helping make cricket the first non-Paralympian Australian sport to fully fund its national teams.

Some of the clubs we've helped

Collarenebri Cods Cricket Club

It’s tough to play cricket when your pitch is almost unplayable. This was the challenge faced by the Collarenebri Cricket Club. So we helped them out with some financial support so that they could get a brand new pitch. We also chipped in with some much needed cricket gear.

Rockhampton Cricket Club

The Rockhampton region was devastated by floods in 2013 and the cricket club’s grounds suffered massive water damage as a result. After we’d found out what had happened, we were on the ground to help with the redevelopment of the clubhouse and surrounding areas.

Joondalup Kinross Cricket Club

The Joondalup Kinross Cricket Club does an amazing job giving people of all abilities the chance to play cricket through their Cricket Champs program. But fundraising wasn’t generating the income they needed to stay afloat. So we stepped up and reinvigorated their fundraising programs with new equipment and financial support.
