THANK YOU EU-SPORTS!
This year we have to invest a lot to equip our Home Ground. Any small contribution would help us to create a great venue. If you would like to help us, please contact us for more information. Thank you
We finally have a Home Ground
The search for a sports field began in the season 2020 and was focused on the city of Zug, obviously, since our name is Zug Cricket Club. After a few e-mails, we got the option to play our sport on the athletics track in Zug. Other venues were completely booked. Unfortunately, the size of the inner circle is too small and extending the pitch to the tartan track would cause too much risk of injury.
In February 2021, the search continued. Google Maps was searched for several hours, all soccer grounds and sports fields in the catchment area of the club members were noted. All potential communities were contacted. Unfortunately, we received one rejection after the other. Nearby places were also driven to and inspected.
To our surprise, we received a positive answer with further questions. With persuasion and assurances of taking care of the ground, we received a confirmation to use it.
Now there was nothing standing in the way of planning a training game and presenting the new pitch to the whole club. We started the day with somewhat cool but beautiful weather. The fog lifted and warm sunshine accompanied us throughout the day at the internal club match.
At the end of the day we presented a few trophies: Best Batsman to Amal, Best Bowler to Michael and President`s Trophy to Pio.

"What a great win Zug CC…!
So proud of my team.
After wining the toss, we decided to bowl first, even though the ground and the wicket was very wet.
I had faith in my bowlers, I wanted my bowlers to keep Cern CC under 150, But Cern managed to make 164/10. our Bowling department did a fantastic job.
Well, even though 164 was a very gettable total, Amal and I struggled to score runs off Cern’s opening bowlers, the two opening bowlers were fantastic. Even though the score board ticked very slow, we decided to keep calm until the 20th over. Even though it was very slow approach, Zug CC managed to finish the game quite comfortably at the 28th over.
So proud of my team.
Let’s keep this spirit boys. " Pio de silva, Zug CC Captain

Great bowling performances by Irshad, Chamith, Mike and Amal….
The team spirit was extremely high, maybe this will show some people that ‘TEAM SPIRIT’ really exists among the members of Zug CC…!
Thank you so so much Zurich Lions, and the umpires Nasir and Abbas for your patience, they stayed under an umbrella for over 4 hours till the weather gave us a playable condition RESPECT.
“Let’s keep going Zug Boys..!"
