Eight international cricketing teams will converge on Lismore next week for the 2014 Pepsi ICC East Asia-Pacific Men’s Trophy.

The international cricketing event will be held from November 19-23, with Vanuatu the first team to arrive in the city tonight.

Over four days next week, teams from Vanuatu, Fiji, Japan, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Cook Islands and the Philippines will battle it out for a place in the 2015 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier.

Lismore City Council Tourism and Events Manager Mitch Lowe said the matches will be played at Oakes, Mortimer, Blair and Heaps Ovals, with entry free for cricket lovers throughout the tournament.

“This is a huge coup for Lismore and we want to make the event a memorable one for the visiting teams, so the more spectators the better. It’s not every day you get an event of this calibre in a regional city and it’s not to be missed,” Mitch said.

“These teams are targeting qualification into the World Cricket League so we expect some sparks to fly when they lock horns.

“Not only does this event show Lismore is gaining traction as a sporting centre but the Trophy is also bringing huge dollars into the city. We certainly have the quality and number of fields required to attract big matches so it’s important we make this tournament a roaring success.”
