Pepsi Cup

Prague 7-10.9.2017

Winterthur Cricket Club will participate in the 4th Prague Pepsi Cup from 7-10 September 2017.

It is with great pleasure that I inform you of the confirmation of the Pepsi Cup Prague 2017.  We have now received confirmation from seven of the eight teams, which come from six different countries as far apart as Iceland and the UAE. So it’s a good time to share some valuable information about the tournament.

This is the fourth year of this fantastic tournament held in Prague, we have been learning year-on-year and we believe the changes we’re making for this year will make the tournament bigger and better than ever before.  Naturally, there are things that we will learn this year also, but this will only make the tournament even better in future.


We look forward to welcoming you in Prague and we really appreciate your participation.   I am looking forward to our further correspondence and please feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any questions or require any additional details.
Yours sincerely,
Karel Ziegler
