In 2019, Chance to Shine is aiming to inspire more children than ever before through an Ambassador campaign. The aim is to take professional cricketers to primary schools and Street cricket projects across the country to inspire children and young people in what is a huge year for the sport.


Over the last 13 years, Chance to Shine has seen the power of role models in inspiring children to take up cricket. For many children, seeing a hero at first hand can encourage and drive them to take the next steps on their cricketing journey.

With Ashes series for both the men and women, as well as the ICC Cricket World Cup, all on home soil, 2019 is the perfect opportunity to use the increased profile of the sport to promote the game. By taking part in the national ambassador campaign, cricketers and schools from across the country will feel like they are part of something wider that is happening in the sport.
