Akhil Adulla - Event Planning & Marketing assistant

My role at the YCF is to plan and support the Diverse Community projects, Pop-Up Cricket, Wicketz programmes under the participation team and assist the Marketing and Communications team.

I aim to coordinate the Guard of Honour – T20 blast games, the Men’s and Women’s Hundred competitions, Beach Cricket, to be the point of contact for females in Cardio Cricket, and to write up content for the Grey Fox Trophy.

This will be done by securing sponsors, liaising with local communities, overseeing the content, and covering all the basic aspects of an event.

I am currently at Leeds Beckett University where I study MSc Sports Events Management and this placement is helping me gain experience alongside my studies.

In my spare time I play, follow, analyze, and consume cricket content as much as possible.
