The Hundred is a brand new sports competition launching this summer. It fuses blockbuster entertainment with world-class cricket, inviting everyone to fall in love with the game.
Combining a new short, fast format of cricket, with each game lasting less than three hours, and incredible entertainment beyond sport, The Hundred aims to make cricket more accessible to reach a broader audience. It’s simple: 100 balls per team, most runs wins, and every ball counts.
The Hundred features eight brand new teams from seven cities across England and Wales, with men’s and women’s competitions taking place side by side.
The team based in Leeds, ‘Northern Superchargers’ is full of world class players such as world-cup winners Ben Stokes, Lauren Winfield-Hill and bowler, Adil Rashid.
Imogen Ward, Fan Engagement Manager at The Hundred said: “We’ve seen great crowds at our Northern Superchargers games so far and we know that families in particular are really enjoying what The Hundred has to offer.
“Naturally, being the team based at Emerald Headingley, we wanted to celebrate Yorkshire Day in style by offering fans from all walks of life that chance to have a bit of fun and get some great prizes in return.”
The hunt for the branded cricket balls starts on Sunday 1st August and will run until Tuesday 3rd of August.
