Prepare for a Barmy Army invasion
The Barmy Army is always in full force – and full voice – when England plays down under, and the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 will be no different.
The Barmy Army has been supporting the England cricket team across the world for more than 17 years
Co-Founder and Managing Director Paul Burnham, a veteran of three ICC Cricket World Cups, says the tournament is a great event and one that is always full of atmosphere.
“50 over cricket is a brilliant game and the World Cup is truly special. It has a real buzz, with so much at stake and the passion that the fans from the sub-continent, in particular, bring to the tournament.”
Started by three friends during the 1994-1995 Ashes tour to Australia, the Barmy Army has been supporting the England cricket team across the world for more than 17 years.
Barmy Army travel packages are available through Official Travel Agent Thomson Sport. For more information about Official Travel Agents worldwide, providing supporter tours to follow your favourite team, please visit www.icctravel.net/agents.
