About Us

MANAGED BY A DIVERSE GROUP OF VISIONARY FOUNDING PARTNERS WITH SPORTING AND ENTREPRENEURAL BACKGROUND

The Philadelphians ownership team is a diverse group of visionary founding partners with sporting and entrepreneurial background.

The group’s focused aim is to re-instate Philadelphia, and Pennsylvania at large, to its original glory of being the nation’s Cricketing hub.

The franchise plans to achieve this by fielding a high quality professional Cricket team representing the Mid Atlantic region along with committed investments in infrastructure and youth development including creating unseen avenues for players and fans of the sport to elevate their cricketing experience, new and existing alike. This will be done in close liaison with key local entities including Schools, County/Townships/City agencies, and local sporting clubs/leagues.
