ICC unveils uniform for 4,000-strong volunteer workforce of World Cup

ANI  |  Cricket 

International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday unveiled the uniform that will be worn by their volunteer workforce at the Men's Cricket World Cup 2019, beginning May 30.

The uniform will be sported by more than 4,000 'World Cup Cricketeers' at this summer's much-awaited tournament.

Volunteers, who will be the heartbeat of the tournament with their specially-designed kit, will receive a bespoke polo shirt, soft-shell jacket, trousers, belt, cap, backpack, and water bottle, as well as a pair of complementing trainers.

Head of Volunteers at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019, Mary Cahill said: "The unveiling of the uniform is a major key moment for the volunteer programme. It lets the team begin to visualise their roles, which we are preparing them for in training from February."

"We are delighted to be able to share the stand-out uniform designs with those who will be wearing them this summer and hope they share our excitement about being the face of this summer's World Cup."

"The World Cup Cricketeers will be the go-to people for those needing assistance at the Cricket World Cup, and the uniform helps set them out from the crowd, easily identifiable for anyone who requires assistance," Cahill said.

The kits have been designed in line with the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 brand, which is underpinned by bold simplicity.

Members of the 'World Cup Cricketeers' team will receive their uniform at 'The Run Up' training sessions, which commence in February. Volunteers can keep their uniforms beyond the tournament, going a small way to thanking them for the important and tireless work they will do to help make the tournament a success.
