Netherlandscricket.com (NLCT) is the Netherlands cricket website that features news, articles and live scores of cricket matches including videos, player stats and team rankings.
Our vision is to popularize cricket in the Netherlands by connecting communities across the country.
Challenges Ahead for the Netherlands
Cricket has seen a boom in popularity in recent years. Holland today has over 200 cricket clubs, and thousands of people enjoy the sport. This is attributable to various factors, including the expansion of the Dutch economy and an increase in immigration from cricket-loving nations (such as India and Pakistan).
Shortage of funds. Cricket is not a professional sport in the Netherlands; therefore, minimal funding is available for its growth. As a result, most cricket clubs are administered entirely by volunteers.
Another difficulty is that cricket is still not as popular as other sports like soccer and basketball, which may hinder the sport’s growth inside the country.
