CRICKET IN MEXICO

Cricket is the oldest of the European and North American sports in Mexico. The Mexico Union Cricket Club was established in 1827, the earliest recorded cricket match comes from the traveler William Bullock in 1865, and the most famous photograph is of the Emperor of Mexico Maximilian von Habsburg at a game in 1865.

Today there is organised cricket in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Querétaro, and Hermosillo under the Mexico Cricket Association, which is an Associate of the ICC. There are men’s leagues, school cricket, and women and junior development. At the international level, the men, women, and junior national teams compete in the Central and South American championships. Two of Mexico’s male players ply their trade overseas, in England and Australia, respectively.

The Reforma Athletic Club in Naucalpan de Juárez is the home of Mexican cricket since 1894 and has the second highest international turf wicket in the world. The Mexico Cricket Association’s efforts to develop cricket and grow the game have been recognised by the ICC, by winning 2018’s Volunteer of the Year Award and the Americas region Mother’s and Daughter’s Programme in 2019.
