St. Moritz Ice Cricket 2018

February 8th & 9th 2018 in St. Moritz (Switzerland)

St. Moritz Ice Cricket brings you a unique twist on cricket. World-famous Cricket stars adapt their styles and launch the cricket balls in the Swiss Alps! On February 8 and 9, 2018, this new event in St. Moritz, Grisons, will put international Cricket legends through their toughest challenge, in the most extreme environment they have ever faced.

When the magic of winter touches the glamorous village of St. Moritz, it gets transformed into something magical. The lake freezes up and becomes a playground for winter sporting events, from Horse racing to Horse Polo and Ice Cricket. The “Cricket on Ice” event was started by some Brits and has been played by amateurs on the St. Moritz frozen lake for over 25 years. St. Moritz Ice Cricket brings this event to the next level. For the first time in cricket history, famous international cricketers will compete on snow and bring a new form of entertainment to the world of cricket. The ‘Cricket Pitch’, which consists of an artificial turf carpet laid out on the perfectly groomed snowfield, will make way for two T20 matches to take place.
