The Protocol documents

This practical guide for the Elite levels of representative cricket has been developed in consultation with medical experts and in line with both ROI and NI Executive Government Guidelines. It outlines the robust measures Cricket Ireland and Provincial Unionswill implement and maintain to help safeguard all members during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This will allow Elite cricket to get back to playing safely, allowing our professional players and elite pathways to prepare for global competition and for Provincial and National teams across Ireland.

The guidelines in this document relate to Phase 3 of the Irish Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society and Step 4 of the Northern Ireland Executive Approach to Decision Making.
