Future Series

The Cricket Ireland Future Series is fast becoming an integral part of the emerging talent pathway in Ireland.

Future Series

The Competition

Cricket Ireland Future Series - the tournament that complements the men’s Inter-Provincial Series to strengthen the talent pathway and provide competitive cricket for the next generation of cricketers with senior inter-provincial and international aspirations.

Cricket Ireland’s National Talent Pathway Manager, Albert van der Merwe said:

"The Future Series plays an important part in creating a space for young players to compete and push for recognition. It creates an environment where provincial unions can really give an opportunity to young players, focus on player development and experiment with broader squads over several games. From a Cricket Ireland perspective, we see this as a massive part of a national succession plan. It also allows young players to impress the Provincial Head Coaches as they strive to attain higher honours."
