CCUSA Operations manager Sofian Qamar speaks to Grade seven students at Margate Middle School on Thursday.
Cricket Council USA (CCUSA) continues to make strides in terms of spreading cricket in the United States as Thursday operations manager Sofian Qamar and communications manager Vinode Mamchan visited the Margate Middle School to introduce the sport to enthusiastic youngsters.
CCUSA was invited to be part of the school’s Career Day programme and three classes were carded to meet with Qamar to get a feel as to what is cricket. Qamar explained to the students that cricket is a career option and there is tremendous finance available in the sport.
According to Qamar :”We are introducing to you the world’s second biggest sport and we are all very anxious for this game to catch up in the United States. We at CCUSA have our set up within 100 yards of this school and we would like to have cricket played here. We want you to get involved in something that can give you a meaningful career.
“We want you to know that we are here to assist you in case you want to pursue a career in this direction.” CCUSA communications manager Mamchan was also on hand and explained that even outside of playing the game, there are lucrative opportunities in terms of being experts in the sports. “The opportunities are endless in this sport. If you play the sport that is one thing but the media opportunities are so much, that you can easily make a career in this direction.”
Qamar informed the youths that the money involved in the sport for players can run into the millions and a comfortable life awaits them.
CCUSA have so far introduced cricket to Plantation Middle School, Pinecrest School and North Broward Prep Academy and the results have been very promising.
