The American Cricket Federation (ACF) announced today that it had received a letter of support from Los Angeles based Southern California Cricket Association (SCCA).

Founded in 1935, SCCA is the biggest cricket league on USA's west coast, comprising 48 teams playing in five divisions.  SCCA teams are spread over a wide geographic area stretching from Santa Barbara in the north to San Diego in the south, and from Long Beach on the west to San Bernardino on the east.

According to the ACF press release, SCCA has offered to "work with [ACF] to build an organization that is accountable to the sport’s many stakeholders and is capable of growing the sport by attracting players, clubs, leagues, fans and investors."  

With the latest expression of support, the number of hardball leagues that have expressed support of ACF has now reached twelve.   ACF noted that the supporting hard-ball leagues account for over 380 teams or clubs.   More leagues and organizations were expected to send their expressions of support in the coming days, according to the press release.

In August, ACF announced that it had received letters of support from Eastern American Cricket Association, Cricket League of New Jersey, Washington Metropolitan Cricket Board, Commonwealth Cricket League of New York, Florida Cricket Conference, Michigan Cricket Association, Minnesota Cricket Association, Midwest Cricket Conference, American Cricket Conference, NorthWest Cricket League and Southern Connecticut Cricket Association. 

ACF has welcomed the support of all organizations involved in promoting cricket, including soft ball cricket leagues and non-league organizations involved in promoting cricket.   According to ACF, three such organizations - NJ Softball Cricket League, CC Morris Cricket Library and Philadelphia International Cricket Festival, have already expressed support of ACF.

ACF is presenting its first national T20 tournament over the Columbus Day weekend in LA.   The tournament is being hosted by SCCA and among the participating teams are those that have already expressed support of ACF's mission.   ACF noted in its press release that a draft strategic plan outlining specific activities to be undertaken in the near-term is also under deliberation.
