The ICC European Division 1 Championship takes place in the Channel Islands this month, as the twelve teams fight it out to be confirmed as the European qualifiers for next year's ICC World Twenty20 qualifier.

Jersey and Guernsey as co-hosts are welcoming teams from across continental Europe which are Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Israel, Italy, Norway, including hosts Jersey and Guernsey.

The ICC European Division 1 Championship is the culmination of a summer of European T20 cricket pathway events, which leads to the ICC World Twenty20 global qualifier in Dubai, UAE in March 2012.

The tournament is taking place between the 19-24 July, at eight venues across Jersey and Guernsey; five in Jersey Grainville, Farmers, FB Fields, Les Quennevais, Victoria College and three in Guernsey; KGV, Port Soif, College Field.

Co-host Tournament Organiser, Guernsey Cricket Board's Mark Latter has led a fantastic team and is very pleased with the work done in the build up to the tournament: "When being accepted to host an ICC Europe event it is always both an honour, but also a huge administrative responsibility that is not taken lightly.

"It has been a fantastic build up to the championship which is a regional qualifier for ICC World Twenty20 2012, so it is extremely important that everything is as the best it can be. Guernsey and Jersey have formed a well drilled partnership and we are looking forward to welcoming all teams from across Europe to the Channel Islands," said Latter.

Tournament Director, ICC Regional Performance Officer, Philip Hudson is very happy with the preparations so far; "The ICC European Division 1 Championship, is the culmination of three months of competition, which leads the top two teams into the Global qualifier next March in UAE. The two European qualifiers will be provided with a wonderful opportunity to test themselves against the other leading Associate and Affiliate countries, in the Twenty20 format.

"Jersey and Guernsey have a great record of being excellent ICC European tournament hosts and have done a fantastic job in getting the islands ready for the ICC European Division 1 Championship," said Hudson.
