The year has gone by quickly and it’s important for all of us to take to time to reflect and time to prepare for the glorious upcoming Australian summer and Pakistani winter. Somewhat fittingly, we are proud to announce the major dates for our 2015/16 campaign.
On the 14th November 2015, the 3rd Annual Fayyaz Sumbal Cup will take place in Lahore.
Sides from the AFP & Australian Embassy will take on some of Pakistan’s finest in our showpiece event. In the past, Cricket Australia has donated uniforms and provided great support, working in tandem with our colleagues in Pakistan to continue Fayyaz’s legacy. Pakistani stars such as Sihkander Baht & foundation patron Shoaib Akhtar have helped to make this a highlight for cricket fans all over the world.
On the same weekend, 16th November 2015, the first FS Social Cup will be held in Perth. The game has been organized with the support of the Australian Federal Police, who will play against a local team with a strong Pakistani influence. If you’re out west, go and enjoy a BBQ and some top notch cricket in idyllic Perth parkland.
February 2016 will see our first match in Hobart. Our ambassadors have worked diligently to secure a match at the gorgeous Bellerive Oval, featuring Tasmanian journalists, public servants and hopefully, the odd Tasmanian legend. Having successfully navigated Bass Straight, FSF is confident this is the beginning of another fantastic custom. Tasmania here we come!
Our event season concludes on the 14th of March, Labour Day, at Rupertswood in Sunbury. For the second time, this match will be played between Rupertswood & FSF sides and is sure to be the perfect conclusion to another great season. The historic significance of Rupertswood contrasts perfectly with the idyllic setting of the club, ensuring a great day of cricket for players and spectators alike.
We will be posting updates as the season rolls on. We still have some fantastic Australian Women’s World Cup merchandise up for grabs, stay tuned for info on how you can help out with this years fundraising effort.
We at Fayyaz Sumbal would like to wish each and every one of our supporters our deepest gratitude. It’s great to have you on board as we embark on another campaign. All the best for the upcoming holiday season!
Peace and love,
The FSF Team
