Winter Edition of Outright - Out Now

Updated: Jun 14

Tena Koutou, welcome to the Winter edition of Outright magazine.

The 2023-24 season of cricket has come to an end in what can only be described as a wonderful summer compared to the last with the devastation of Cyclone Gabrielle still being felt by many families all over the country.

The last series of the summer involved the White Ferns hosting England with both the T20 and ODI series going the way of the English. After a couple of pre-tour training camps in Lincoln, the White Ferns will get the chance to test themselves once more against the English with 3 ODI and 5 T20 matches, starting in late June. 

The Blackcaps have recently completed a tour of Pakistan with the T20 series drawn 2-2 and are now making their way to the West Indies and USA, for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup where they will face Afghanistan, West Indies and Papua New Guinea in pool play.

Inside this edition of Outright we catch up with Mikaela Greig who in addition to her cricket, balances life with farm ownership as well as a day job with Beef + Lamb NZ. We canvas two past player who are both in the field of education, former Otago player Justin Paul is an Education curriculum specialist and former Firebird Jamie Gibson has become a secondary school teacher post cricket. We also acknowledge and celebrate the careers of a number of players who have decided to pull stumps at the end of the season.  

We also recap all the events that have happened over the summer including The Players’ Golf Day, past player events, The Players’ Conference and the prestigious player voted awards for men and women.

Earlier this year, FICA and Winners Alliance forged a historic partnership where Winners Alliance will manage player group licensing rights on behalf of more than 500 cricketers from across FICA’s 13 affiliate countries. The new partnership will protect and optimize players’ intellectual property through new global licensing opportunities.

Winners Alliance are experts in group licensing programs, encompassing video games, trading cards, collectibles, and various related categories. Significantly, this is the first player-led and endorsed group licensing program combining the name, image, and likeness of professional cricketers around the world.

The new partnership will ensure FICA can build on the association’s core advocacy work on behalf of players and to ensure better outcomes for professional players in the future.

The deal with FICA, continues to build on Winners Alliance’s expanding list of partnerships with athlete groups, after launching upon securing the rights from the Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA) in August 2022. An agreement that will see Winners Alliance establish the first-ever player group licensing program in professional tennis history.
