Burhan Centre Madrassah From Manchester Wins The EMAN CUP 2024 At The Home Of Cricket – Lords

The EMAN Cup 2024, a groundbreaking National Inter-Madrassah Cricket Tournament, concluded with an exhilarating final at Lords, the “Home of Cricket.” Sponsored by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), this historic event brought cricket to the heart of England’s urban areas, featuring over 50 organizations and hundreds of young participants.

The tournament, which began at the iconic Park Avenue Dome complex in Bradford, was inaugurated by Adil Rashid, a champion of the 50 Over and T20 World Cup. Faith Associates, in partnership with the ECB, organized five regional heats in Bradford, Manchester, Birmingham, West London, and East London. The regional champions competed in the finals at Lords on May 12, 2024.

Burhan Centre Madrassah from Manchester emerged victorious, claiming the EMAN Cup 2024 title after a tense final against Essex representatives. The tournament used “pairs” cricket rules, and the competition showcased the incredible talent and sportsmanship of young players from diverse backgrounds.

Sabah Hamed, Diverse Communities Volunteer Manager from the ECB, expressed her delight: “The EMAN CUP 2024 has been an opportunity to engage with communities at the grassroots and build that love for the game. Bringing the regional Madrassah champions to Lords has been a highlight for all of us.”

The EMAN Cup provided a platform for children (boys and girls aged 8-11) to play cricket at iconic venues, including Park Avenue Dome in Bradford, Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, and Lords Cricket Ground in London. This initiative is inspiring a new generation of cricketers and fostering a love for the game within urban communities.

Shaukat Warraich, CEO of Faith Associates, highlighted the transformative impact of the EMAN Cup: “The Eman Cup is a transformative project that will have a sustainable and lasting impact within the key communities involved. It provides a structure to compete, develop skills, and play at iconic venues across England, building a pathway for new cricket players.”
