The schedule for the 2014 American Cricket College competition has been unveiled with the tournament running from 12th to 16th March.

The contest has grown in both size and impact since its inception in 2009 and next year will be held in Florida as 28 teams compete for the Shiv Chanderpaul Trophy.

In March 2012 the Semis and Finals of the American College Cricket National Championship was televised from the CBRP Cricket Stadium in Florida, & a full season was broadcast by TV Asia from Oct through Dec 2012, followed by the 2013 Nationals final four & Finals.

Another huge first was Coca Cola & Dish Network becoming sponsors of American College Cricket in 2012 - the first major American companies to become involved in USA domestic cricket.
