Player and Fundraising Requests

The Wellington Firebirds and Wellington Blaze work hard in the community to support events and fundraising efforts wherever possible. There are many requests for player appearances and donations which the Cricket Wellington endeavours to meet within the constraints of the available merchandise, players’ travel, training, playing and other commitments.

Pyro, the Wellington Firebirds mascot, is also very popular within the cricket community and is always well received. Pyro is avaliable for school visits, community events and charity fundraisers.

Please note that player schedules are often subject to late change. Whilst Cricket Wellington will always endeavour to fulfil all commitments, occasionally due to players’ availability or injury, player appearances may be cancelled or amended at late notice, or fulfilled by a replacement player. Should this occur, Cricket Wellington will contact you as soon as possible to discuss alternatives.

We request a copy of any photos (preferably digital) featuring the player(s) attending your event and permission to post the pictures on our website.
