PRETORIA UNIVERSITY (Tuks) will be bidding for a notable hat trick of successive titles when they defend their crown at the Momentum National Club Championships (NCC) to be played next week.


The Championships, which brings together the champion clubs of Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) 12 affiliates, will be hosted by the Northerns Cricket Union from Wednesday, 23 April, to Sunday, 27 April 2014 with the Final to be held at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Monday, 28 April 2014.


Momentum will once again be putting up a prize pool of R80 000 plus other benefits as follows:


The winning club will receive R50 000 with R20 000 going to the runners-up.


Player of the Tournament – Weekend getaway anywhere in SA for two including flights, accommodation and car hire


Best Batsman – R5 000


Best Bowler – R 5 000


The winning club also nominates a development club to receive kit to the value of R10 000.


“The Momentum National Club Championship gives ideal context to one of our most important domestic competitions and it also provides an appropriate highpoint to the club season,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. “A glance at the performances over the last two seasons shows that it has produced players who have gone on to represent their Franchises, such as Francois le Clus, Simon Harmer, Tumi Masekela, Graeme van Buuren and Rassie van der Dussen to name just a few.


“This advancement proves that club cricket remains a very important part of our talent pipeline, which starts from KFC Mini-Cricket and goes all the way through to being selected for the Proteas’.


“As elsewhere in the world, club cricket is also a very important recreational platform. It helps ordinary and passionate people to enjoy sport across diverse cultural boundaries and it inevitably becomes central to the community it serves.


“I would like to thank Momentum for their generous and ongoing sponsorship from grassroots level right up to international cricket and also the Northerns Cricket Union for making their world-class facilities available once again.”


Danie van den Bergh, Head of Brand at Momentum, commented: “As a sponsor committed to the development of cricket and sport in South Africa, Momentum is happy to contribute to supporting cricket at club level and to make the Momentum Club Championships a fiercely fought competition.  The regional reach and the inclusivity of club cricket allows greater accessibility from a wider catchment area, meaning that true talent and skills development will have a greater chance of seeing the light of day. 


“Our hope is that, over time, we will be able to see where our sponsorship support and our partnerships with CSA, unions and franchises will reap strong returns for the development of the game across all regions of South Africa.”


The matches will be played in various venues around Pretoria and entrance is free to the matches.
