Red Bull UAE announces that registration for Red Bull Quicket – UAE 2021 is now open, and participants are encouraged to register as quickly as possible as there are limited spots available.
The exciting sports tournament, which first debuted in the United Arab Emirates in 2011, returns for another edition, from September 24 to October 8, 2021, with a format in which street-level and junior cricketers national level will be very familiar.
Red Bull Quicket will kick off its first qualifier on Friday, September 24 in Ras Al Khaimah, followed by three more qualifiers in Ajman and Dubai leading up to the grand final on October 8 in Nasma Central, Sharjah’s new lifestyle hub.
Adopting a “2v2” format, or two players per side, each Red Bull Quicket match lasts ten minutes and consists of 2 overs per inning, 6 balls per over and each bowler one over. Small Red Bull Quicket goal posters are on the field: 3 runs, 5 runs, and 6 runs. The objective of the game is simple … Hit the goal and the team receives the races. If the ball runs off the goal line, no runs are awarded.
A match does not end until both sides play the full quota of overs; but it should be noted that only runs scored with the cricket bat will be considered. That means there are no leg byes, no byes, and no knockdowns.
If a match ends in a draw, the winning team will be decided by the referee by tossing a coin. If the finals end in a tie, the superintendent will decide the champions.
Intrigued? You should be.
Registration for the qualifiers has already started and you can register via the official Red Bull Quicket – UAE events page. Four UAE qualifiers will take place between September and October, followed by the grand final at Nasma Central Park in Sharjah on October 8.
Red Bull Quicket UAE 2021 takes place with the support of Arada, the tournament sponsor and the lead developer behind Nasma Central Park.
