The Name of the League
The name for the league was decided to be Euro T20 Slam earlier this year as the three participating cricket boards and event managers — Woods Entertainment and GS Holdings — sat together and made the unanimous decision.
Talking about the name of the league, Chief Executive of Cricket Ireland, Warren Deutrom said that:
“It was important to us to convey our points of difference that would resonate in local markets – in Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands – where cricket is not the dominant sport in town. The touch points of geography, cricket and excitement were our goals, and we hope it will gain the necessary traction with fans.”
“The process wasn’t just about establishing a mere name, but rather giving the tournament an identity which both aligned it with other global domestic leagues, yet made it a distinctive and a vibrant brand”, he further added.
The logo for the league has been officially revealed. Here’s how it looks:
