T10 W Cup prize money could top $100K
BOCA RATON/FL – USA: The upcoming T10 World Cup being hosted by Cricket Council USA (CCUSA) could top $100K depending on how many teams come forward for the May tournament.
President of CCUSA, Sofian Qamar said the goal of the organization is to get as many clubs as possible to sign on for the tournament. “Initially the goal was to get 100 clubs to take part in this tournament. We have decided to allow an infinite number of teams to register and the registration fee of each club which is $1000 will go towards the prize money. Hence if we have 100 teams the prize money will be $100,000, if we get 120 teams the prize money will be $120,000. Even if we get 50 teams the prize money will be $50,000. So we are doing it differently this time as we are matching the prizes with the number of teams taking part in the tournament.”
The T10 World Cup formerly called the USA Nationals /Maq T10 will take place from May 19 to 22 at the Central Broward Regional Park and the Maq Stadium in Delray Beach. CCUSA has created some air-tight rules for this tournament and all teams will be required to sign off on the rules during the pre-registration period to be considered for this tournament. Pre-registration is open at the moment and teams from all over the world are invited to take part in this tournament, which promises to be the biggest T10 tournament in the United States.
