Imparja Cup 2008 opens today


The biggest ever Imparja Cup opens today with a feast of cricket taking place in Alice Springs. The premier State/Territory division (featuring eight teams representing all states and territories of Australia) has a busy day ahead with each team playing two Twenty20 matches to open the tournament, New South Wales kicking off their title defence against Tasmania at Traeger Park from 10am.

Queensland, who won three straight titles from 2004-2006, will open their campaign against the Northern Territory, while the hosts will then take on last year’s big improvers, Western Australia, in the marquee match of the day under lights at Traeger Park from 7pm.

The women’s division also starts today with the first appearance of an interstate team in this division, the New South Wales women making an historic first trip to the Imparja Cup will take to the field at Flynn Park tonight.

The tournament will be the biggest ever both in participation and attention - national interest and coverage of the Imparja Cup this year will allow more people around Australia to experience this growing festival of cricket. Scorecards and statistics for all matches can be found on the Cricket Australia website at www.cricket.com.au/default.aspx?s=imparjacup2008, allowing cricket fans to follow the tournament from the senior division through to the community division.

In more exciting news the Australian public, for the first time, will be able to see broadcasts of Imparja Cup matches. National Indigenous Television (NITV) are undertaking a full broadcast of ten matches during the tournament, in addition to interviews and feature segments from around the tournament. The matches will be screened from March this year on NITV, which is accessible through the Imparja signal in indigenous communities and on channel 180 through the Foxtel/Austar platform nationally.
