Sydney Thunder is committed to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across the Thunder Nation through a variety of initiatives, including the annual Indigenous T20 Cup.
The commitment by Cricket NSW, Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers to the Indigenous T20 Cup is an ongoing action outlined in the CNSW Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
We’re committed to providing opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to connect to culture and community through cricket. ❤️💛🖤#NRW2021 #MoreThanAWord #ThunderNation pic.twitter.com/u0TnvJlah9— Sydney Thunder (@ThunderBBL) May 28, 2021
The Sydney Thunder teams are supported by Homestar Finance, and Mandy Sly, Homestar’s General Manager – Operations, said it was important to connect sport with the community.
“The commitment of Cricket NSW and Sydney Thunder in supporting the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities by combining culture and cricket into the Indigenous T20 Cup makes us proud to be a sponsor of Sydney Thunder. We hope it encourages these communities to get involved in the great game of cricket, share stories, and hopefully even see a future Sydney Thunder player in the making”.
The Women’s tournament is contested between Thunder, Sixers, and combined team from Victoria. The Men’s tournament is played between Thunder, Sixers, Melbourne Renegades and Melbourne Stars.
Nominations for the upcoming Indigenous T20 Cup will open in September 2023.For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
