The inspiring vision of the FoC is to promote Peace, Harmony, and Togetherness among all Sri Lankans and primarily between the OBU's & OBA's in the United Kingdom, through Cricket. That vision is verily so relevant today when Cricket is playing a most significant role in the national reconciliation process in Sri Lanka; our festival is an inspiring contribution towards that process. The prime objective for 2017, from the Marketing & Media Team, is to promote the event among the Sri Lankan community primary living in the UK and in Europe, in order to make this event the most widely anticipated event of the calendar year. We the team would seek to widen the appeal of the event beyond the Sri Lankan Community.
