Two of Germany’s six cricketing regions have started Bundesliga competition this weekend, in what bodes to be an exciting summer of cricket across the country.
Teams in the Bundesliga Süd-West and Bundesliga-Mitte competitions headed out onto the pitch on Sunday April 13th for their first league games on what turned out to be a chilly Spring day.
This season competition is wide-open in a number of regions, as the DCB aims to streamline Bundesliga competitions across the country while at the same time encouraging clubs to work more on proper administration, cricket development and on-field excellence.

The DCB understands that at a NRWCU meeting last Sunday (06.04.2014) some clubs decided that they are going to play in a NRWCU-run league this season. The DCB has also been told that the NRWCU board issued an ultimatum to clubs saying that it is only possible to play in one league – either the DCB-supervised Bundesliga or the NRWCU league.
The DCB sees things differently. There is no ultimatum from the DCB on this issue. If DCB-registered clubs wish to play in the alternative league as well as the Bundesliga competition then this is acceptable. Weiterlesen
