YCF Indoor Cricket League 2022 launch

The YCF Indoor Cricket League 2022 is under way with a thrilling competition set for this year as we see the action-packed soft ball competition take place across a number of areas in the region.

Our flagship league in Leeds, in partnership with LPL, has opened to more teams across the city this year.

For the 2022 winter season there are 48 participants taking part across eight teams, with each team batting it out for a place in the final’s day on Sunday, 20 November, at Leeds City Academy.

Our competition, part of our core cities programme, runs through October and November annually and is designed to run alongside the similar soft ball leagues in Bradford, Kirklees, & Sheffield.

Sohail Raz, Diverse Communities Manager for YCF, said: “The Indoor Softball Leagues were excellent the previous season, and this league is expected to be an as excellent occasion.

“All of this is done to provide the people of Leeds a chance to watch cricket games together, play cricket together, and enjoy each other’s company.

“Most of the players still wanted to play cricket after the summer ended in order to stay involved with the sport and their friends. The only way to achieve that is through indoor leagues.”
