After faltering start between 2000 and 2002, cricket finally made an entry in Iceland in the form of two clubs, Reykjavik and Kopavogur, in 2015. A unit of 30 players run cricket in Iceland. Every year there is a 5-match series between Reykjavik and Kopavogur that the former won 3-2 last year. Iceland cricket is not eligible for funding from ICC unless they increase their pool of players. With a hope to increase number of players, Icelandic cricket hopes to expand the sport to school level and bring in more players from their native cities. This may encourage young budding cricketers. Apart from being a small unit, Icelandic cricket also does not possess enough fund to spend on the right equipments.

Keeping in mind these alarming reasons, Icelandic cricket is accepting donations from companies and entrepreneurs. A donation of £50 will get a donor supporter status, putting them on their list of patrons (individuals) or sponsors on the Iceland cricket website, as mentioned on justgiving.com (a crowdfunding website). The donator will also get an advert in their 2018 tour programme. A donation of £100 will make them official sponsor of one of the players of the donor’s choice in Iceland Cricket’s Hall of Fame.
