The Board of the Euro T20 Slam has today confirmed plans to launch the event in 2021, given the ongoing uncertainty created by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Originally set to launch in 2019, the league sees two teams from Scotland, Ireland and The Netherlands compete in a first-of-its-kind continent-based T20 league.

Cricket Ireland, who has mandated the league as a Full Member, say: “Positive talks over recent months between organisers, financial backers and cricket boards had provided a glimmer of hope that the competition may see a launch in 2020 – with each of the three cricket boards identifying a fixture window to hold the event.

“However, continued uncertainty around the impacts of COVID-19 on international travel, quarantine requirements and the status of fan attendance at matches has scuppered plans for the current season.”
