FanCode ECS Portugal Cartaxo provides an opportunity for seven teams contesting 24 games over six days to establish the Champions. Every game will be live streamed worldwide on the European Cricket Network and on FanCode - a multi-sport aggregator platform, from the house of Dream Sports for the Indian Sub-Continent.
Coimbra Knights (CK)
Fighters CC (FIG)
Friendship CC (FRD)
Gorkha 11 (GOR)
Wild Panthers (WLP)
Malo (MAL) is the most successful Portuguese club in ECN history with an imposing win-loss record of 18-3. MAL have made their mark in every tournament staged in Portugal, winning both the European Cricket Series Cartaxo 2020 and FanCode Portugal T10 2021. Malo will be confident of adding more silverware to their already bulging trophy cabinet.
Formed in 2015 with Barrie Knowles playing a pivotal role, Coimbra Knights (CK) primarily enjoy the beautiful game as a social group of cricketers. Winning just a solitary game, CK did not enjoy a particularly good debut tournament in April 2021, With the benefit of that previous experience, Coimbra Knights will be eyeing a better showing this time around.
Gorkha 11 (GOR) is an experienced side with an impressive win-loss record of 16-5 in all ECN matches. Playing as Rossio CC at European Cricket Series Cartaxo 2020, GOR won the Bronze Final and bettered their record at FanCode Portugal T10 2021 finishing second losing the final narrowly to Malo. GOR will be looking to go one step further and claim the elusive ECS title this time around.
Oeiras (OEI) have been consistent performers in the group stages, but have failed to win a game in the knockout stages, losing both the semi-finals and bronze finals at the two tournaments.
Formed earlier this year, Fighters CC (FIG) and Friendship CC (FRD) are the newest additions to European cricket, but boast numerous players with previous ECS experience and will be aiming to make a serious impression on debut.
Another newcomer Wild Panthers (WLP) will also be a competitive team, boosted by previous Gorkha 11 stars Azhar Andani and Siraj Nipo. WLP will be a team to watch out for at FanCode ECS Portugal Cartaxo.
