The NICC Showcases the Talents of Indigenous Cricketers From All Across the Country

National Indigenous Cricket Championships

The National Indigenous Cricket Championships (NICC) offer a pathway for talented and aspiring Indigenous cricketers from all States and Territories to showcase their potential. Competing in the week-long T20 tournament, players can follow in the footsteps of D’Arcy Short, Scott Boland, Dan Christian and Ashleigh Gardner, who have all gone on to represent Australia at the highest level.  

Since the inception of the NICC in 2016, the Imparja Cup (from which the NICC was born) and NICC have been held side-by-side on Arrernte Land, with hundreds of talented Indigenous cricketers, coaches and match officials from different mobs around the country coming together in the heart of Central Australia to celebrate cricket, culture and country.  

The Northern Territory enter a Men's and Women's team in the tournament. 

Nominations are now open and NT Cricket invite talented male or female players from the Territory to nominate for the NT Men’s or Women’s Teams.  

Nominations are also open from any male or female who identifies as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander who would like to coach or act as team manager for the NT Indigenous Teams.

Expressions of interest close on Friday 22 December 2023
