    Weʼve raised £82 to create Iceland’s first cricket ground

    Reykjavík, Iceland
    Funded on Tuesday, 13th November 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Iceland is the first ever crowdfunded international cricket team. We're a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, and we'd love your help to keep cricket growing in the Arctic north.

    We are thankful for donations of any size, no matter how small, but donations over £50 or more will give you official supporter status. If you're an individual, you'll be a patron of Iceland Cricket. Your name and cricketing nation will appear on our website here. If you're a company or organisation, you'll be a sponsor of Iceland Cricket. Your logo, hyperlinked to your website, will appear on our website here and here.

    The current project is to develop a cricket ground at the Víðistaðatún park in the town of Hafnarfjörður, about 10 km from Reykjavík, the capital city of Iceland. Adjacent to Víðistaðatún there is accommodation for visiting teams at the Lava Hostel and Campsite. There is a small pavilion with toilets, a kitchen and hot and cold running water.

    We of course need to start by obtaining permission to play cricket on Víðistaðatún. We would aim to purchase a storage shed, a roller, a mower, a transfer wheel line marker and boundary flags (or a boundary rope and winder) and a scoreboard. We have already won a Flicx pitch which we would also store on site. This all costs money, and we cannot secure any funding from the International Cricket Council until we have two cricket grounds (which we cannot create without funding).

        Hi kit, I love this idea of getting cricket thriving in Iceland. I'll be spreading the message here in Australia (I'm English) and hopefully you can't reach your targets. Good luckChris

        Good luck in getting cricket to Iceland, probably the only cricket ground that doesn't have to come off for light.
