Friendly pricing makes one-day domestic cricket great value for a day's entertainment with your family and friends over summer — perfect for everyone of all ages to enjoy top level cricket.
Games are played at many of New Zealand's favourite cricket venues like Eden Park Outer Oval and Pukekura Park where you can get up close to the players and action, and takes top quality cricket beyond the big cities to supporters in areas from Invercargill to Whangarei.
The six-team competition comprises eight rounds, then a high-stakes series of Finals playoffs, building up to the Grand Final!
For the players, there are plenty of carrots with a $60,000 prize pool at stake in this summer's Ford Trophy Grand Final, $45,000 going to the winner and $15,000 to the runner-up. You know which side you'd rather be on!
The Auckland Aces will enter the 2018/19 season as the defending champions after defeating the Central Stags in last summer's Grand Final.
Recent seasons also saw a long-running Canterbury drought broken in Rangiora...
And how about that time the Stags achieved rare back-to-back titles at Pukekura Park in 2016!
