The 12th edition of the IZAARA CRICKET FIESTA 2024 was another thrilling cricketing event under the Izaara Cup cricket series. Displays of camaraderie, great cricketing moments and joie de vivre, a hallmark of the Izaara tournament made some great memories this year.

Izaara Cup 2024 kicked off in style

Held at the scenic Dempsey SCC ground on the 9th and 10th of March, the  air was alive with excitement and much anticipated cricket action as 16 teams contested for glory displaying some exceptional sportsmanship and cricketing prowess.

The heavens smiled and frowned occasionally, with beautiful clear blue skies and sunshine on Saturday and showers on Sunday afternoon. But nothing dampened the spirits of these  fantastic group of sportsmen who had gathered to play the 12th edition of the Izaara cup 2023. Their passion and goal was CRICKET and cricket alone.

Intermittent showers didn’t dampen the spirit of the game. Tremendous enthusiam on display by the athletes.

The tournament is a earmarked event on Singapore’s cricket calendar since its inception in 2010 and this much awaited 12th edition brings in cheer, networking & camaraderie, as the players bond without barriers unifying as a team and enjoy the weekend.

The Izaara Cricket fiesta is a fun and lively 8-a-side tournament that has become my flagship annual event, thanks to some great sportsmanship and continued support from a wonderful bunch of sportsmen and teams from the Marine, IT,Banking and others who return to its fold every year. Regular teams, new teams. it’s always the same action packed and fun atmosphere at the Izaara Cricket fiesta. If I may say so with gratitude this is the 2nd largest cricket event after the Mariners cricket. 

Izaara has had the privilege of having conceptualized and pioneered the first ever Day and Night Cricket event in Singapore in 2010 and this well-received and much awaited, inclusive annual event, welcomes one and all.  

The tournament is played for the following categories-
