A draft will be organised for each age group that allows the best young players in Northern Queensland to put their names forward to be selected by the Northern Kings.
A talent scout will help make selections; they are sourced exclusively on their knowledge of the junior cricket landscape. Much like the AFL draft, a lottery determines the order in which owners get their selections. First drawn, first selection and so on.
The BPL will host the Junior Draft Day. This will be a family-friendly event that will be live-streamed. Once teams have been allocated and profile pictures have been taken, all junior members will sign their very own mock BPL contract; a moment that makes the event feel like part of the professional experience.
The tournament is a new and emerging platform to compete and grow your cricket skills in the modern game.
Change text to: After the official launch of the BPL, any of Brisbane’s cricketers, aged 18 or over, can put their hat into the ring – regardless of age, previous performance, or the area in which they live or play club cricket.
After the nomination closing date, all teams including the Northern Kings will receive a list of those who have nominated for the auction. Then the magic happens. On auction night, each team will have a salary cap. Of course, it’s “monopoly money” – like a fantasy football auction on steroids – to which they must stick to, whatever the outcome.
For the players, it’s all about bragging rights. Who is going to fetch the highest bid? Will you go for more than your mate? There’s only one way to find out… The Auction Night will have limited availability so keep up to date with the latest events and announcements on our website.
