The MCC Foundation

The MCC Foundation (MCCF) is the charitable arm of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) the most famous cricket club in the world and the owner of the legendary Lord's Ground, universally acknowledged to be the Home of Cricket.

The MCCF exists to encourage and support the playing of cricket anywhere in the world. At the heart of everything we do is the belief that cricket is about more than developing sporting excellence – it also builds self-esteem and life skills, and acts as a bridge across classes and countries.

The Hubs

In 2011 the MCCF launched its Cricket Hub initiative. There are now 38 Hubs across the UK, providing free, professional coaching to talented athletes from state secondary schools. We coach Hub participants to attain a high standard of playing, encourage them to join local cricket clubs and mentor them into County and District squads.

The MCCF is committed to building on the extensive work of MCC in supporting cricket abroad. Working with charity partners in Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Rwanda, we are involved in a broad range of projects in those countries. Our aim is to encourage and grow the playing of cricket in as many countries as possible.
