WACA change their name to WA Cricket
By Jevan Collins
At the WACA season launch, this morning at Fraser’s restaurant in kings park CEO Christina Matthews had something big to reveal.
She revealed some big news stating that after four years of extensive research which showed there was confusion around the association of the WACA and the iconic ground of the same name. The association of cricket in Western Australia is changing its name to WA Cricket to differentiate between the ground and governing body.
However, the iconic ground will retain the name the WACA ground, with the starting of the ground improvements it is the perfect time to ensure a clear distinction between the roles of the ground and the association.
Christina Matthews this morning “This is an exciting time for cricket in WA and we are looking forward to what this evolution brings” she also went onto say that “WA cricket represents the whole state, and everyone involved in cricket not just the association and the ground”
“We are WA cricket, it’s our legacy” as she concluded her speech
