Formed in 2019, Forge is a community cricket team dedicated to promoting integration and participation in Athens. Team Forge supports refugees and asylum seekers who retain their strong passion and love for the game of cricket. The project is supported by Forge for Humanity who support the needs of solo male refugees and asylum seekers in Athens.
Finalists in the Hellenic Premier League (HPL) in 2019 and Winners of the Athens T20 championship in 2020, Forge will be a fiercely competitive outfit in the much-anticipated FanCode ECS Greece.
