Premium productions for more than 35 regular season games will include at least eight cameras, providing the best-ever coverage of a domestic cricket competition in the United States.
Select premium broadcasts will be featured on Willow TV’s linear channels, marking the first-ever time that regular season MiLC matches will have television coverage across the United States. All the season’s 197 matches will be available free to watch online on the MLC Network YouTube page and a select “Match of the Week” will be featured each week on Facebook’s Cricket Community page.
Minor League Cricket is also pleased to announce a significant increase in the championship’s prize money for the 2022 season. Already the largest purse in American cricket, teams will compete for prize money increased by 40% over the 2021 inaugural season. The championship-winning team will collect a $150,000 first prize out of a total of $350,000.
