Many clubs will have this week received communication from the ECB in relation to the ongoing challenges with National Programmes.

The ECB have released an important statement in relation to previous years' All Stars and Dynamos equipment:

Plastic All Stars and Dynamos balls, Dynamos tees and PVC banners should not be used.

With regards to this summer, the statement says:

  • Registration dates will remain the same:
    • April 3 for Priority Registration for previous attendees.
    • April 10 for General Registration.
  • Recommended programme start dates remain the same (May 10).
  • Registration will be at a reduced price.
  • Participants will only receive a personalised t-shirt this year.

The full ECB statement can be read here.

The ECB have also published FAQs for the 2024 National Programmes, which can be read here.

"We understand this will be frustrating and concerning to clubs, especially for those planning to start before May 10," says the Devon Cricket Foundation's Clubs & Programmes Manager, Alex Jopling.

"We share your frustrations and concerns. We have confidence All Stars and Dynamos will continue this year and we are looking forward to a blockbuster summer of National Programmes with higher numbers of participants than ever."

Further details are expected from the ECB next week.

In the meantime, any concerns should be raised with the ECB via their Helpdesk.
