Cricket fans stump up cash for Iceland national team

3년 전

Iceland's cricket team is not among the heavyweights of the game, but thanks to the generosity of an online community of cricket lovers, fundraisers will hope the crack of leather on willow could be heard more and more in the north Atlantic nation's volcanic landscape.

Yet to play its first international fixture - set to be against Switzerland in the UK in July - the amateur side, founded in 2008, has been crowdfunding money to cover its costs.

Members of the 70,000 strong r/Cricket subreddit answered the north-Atlantic nation's call for support, raising more then £2,100 in a fortnight.
