The addition of Kimberlin Education to the ICC T20 World Cup’s growing list of service providers reinforces the event’s commitment to working with world-class organisations to help deliver a spectacular celebration, and leave a positive lasting impact for cricket.
Kimberlin Education is a leading Australia-based agency specialising in the development of educational content. They will work with the ICC T20 World Cup 2020, in collaboration with Cricket Australia, on delivering a program comprising exploratory-learning units for both primary and secondary students aged 5-16, with the aim of engaging teachers, students, families and communities across Australia.
The ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Schools Program has been designed to complement Australian Cricket’s existing suite of schools and participation programs, and provide teachers and students with a best-in-class option for classroom-based learning, befitting a major global sporting event. Program units will be based on the following themes:
• Inspirational Women and Girls
• Build Your Own World Cup
The ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Schools Program will launch later this month, at which time teachers will be able to register for the first learning unit, available for Term 4, 2019. The program will be available until the end of 2020. Schools will be given the opportunity to participate in a ticketing program, giving students across the country the chance to attend women’s and men’s ICC T20 World Cup 2020 matches.
In 2020, Australia will host two ICC T20 World Cups, with the women’s (21 February – 8 March) and men’s (18 October – 5 November) tournaments to be played as standalone events across Australia. Both events will culminate in finals at the world’s largest cricket stadium, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, presenting an opportunity to set a new world record for the highest attendance at a women’s sporting fixture on Sunday 8 March 2020, International Women’s Day.
Kimberlin Education joins a growing list of world-class service providers for the ICC T20 World Cup 2020, including Ticketek, Cummins & Partners, Michael Cassel Group, CHE Proximity, Rosterfy and TEG Live & Gema Group.
