Our National Cricket Team will soon have a new home, thanks to the hard work of the SCA Executive Committee and our partners! We thank MCCY and SportSG for the invaluable support to secure the West Coast Ground.  SCA hopes to have a cricket-ready facility to start National Training by mid 2024.

In land-scarce Singapore, this is a massive undertaking that gives reason for celebration. The National Team will have a good training and competition environment supporting its endeavour to make Singapore proud.

“It is a challenge to find adequate space for field sports, given the land constraint we face in Singapore. The national cricket team’s training regimen and schedule requires a dedicated space that is conducive for training. We appreciate the strong support from Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth and Sport Singapore in this journey – from negotiating for earlier shared facility arrangement at Balestier Plain to their quick action in helping us secure the lease at West Coast Ground,” said Mahmood Gaznavi, President of SCA. “From the moment Singapore Cricket Association shared our requirements and challenges with Minister Edwin Tong, there had been prompt and timely developments culminating in the West Coast Ground being allocated to cricket.”

The National Cricket League will continue at various locations including the Padang, Dempsey and the Balestier Plain at Indian Association and Ceylon Sports Club grounds.

SCA is confident and continues to work closely with our partners in our push to promote cricket and to secure a permanent home for the National Team and cricket’s national development.
