Saleem Akhtar from Jinnah Restaurant has become the first Park Avenue – Bradford Partner by signing a three-year agreement to support the Park Avenue project.

Park Avenue is a unique concept and gives Bradford national recognition for using cricket as a positive vehicle for social inclusion. The ground has previously hosted 306 First-Class and 48 List A matches and has also welcomed international teams such as Australia, Pakistan, India, South Africa, New Zealand and the West Indies.

Andy Dawson, The Yorkshire County Cricket Club Commercial Director, said: “We are delighted and extremely grateful that Saleem has supported Park Avenue through the partnership.

“The facility has now been open since May 2017 and we have had over 71 matches played on the ground and an average of 90 people per day using the nets area.

“We are currently looking for people with a huge passion for cricket in the Yorkshire area to support with funding, ensuring that cricket facilities are accessible for the Bradford community. All funding will be used to ensuring the facilities stay open for community use.”
