It’s a Barmy Battle in Galle in Partnership with SriLankan Airlines

It will be a Barmy battle for the trophy between cricket fans from Australia, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the UK when the Barmy Army Fans World Cup 2023 plays out at the Galle International Stadium from 20 – 21 November 2023, in partnership with SriLankan Airlines. As the principal partner of the Barmy Army Fans World Cup 2023, SriLankan Airlines was contributory to the decision to pick out Galle as the host city of the event, as an airline that continues to mobilize global interest in Sri Lanka as a trending destination for adventure and sport through significant international events.

The Barmy Army was founded during England's 1994/95 Ashes tour of Australia. What started as a small group of 30 backpackers staying in hostels living their dream by watching the Ashes Down Under has now evolved into the world-famous supporters' club that it is today. With over 1.5 million social media followers and 40,000 members, the sole mission still remains the same - maximising the enjoyment of sport for all.
