The Hundred has commissioned a new stadium Minecraft, featuring design ideas from kids including a rooftop garden and a moat.
Minecraft has been entertaining children for over a decade, transcending the description of a mere video game to become a massive platform for social interaction and education.
Every child and parent knows what it is and many have learned to use it to create things for fun and as a school tool. Big new cricket tournament The Hundred took advantage of this and recruited 10 kids to design their dream stadium in Minecraft.
Developed to promote this year’s The Hundred competition, the final design features elements of all 10 finalist designs in a mega stadium that includes everything from a roller coaster to a rainbow arch.
The Every Block Counts competition invited kids to draw or paint their dream stadium and then the top 10 designs were judged by a panel of experts including Minecraft expert James Delaney and Birmingham Phoenix women’s team star Issy Wong.
The final design is not only set in space, but also includes a roller coaster, a natural rooftop garden, a moat with sea monsters inside, a rainbow arch and a transparent gate.
The Stadium is free for anyone to download and use in Minecraft and can be obtained from The Hundred website.
“It was fantastic to see the level of creativity in this competition. We’ve seen entries that exceeded our wildest expectations and the final build is truly a blockbuster cricket stadium,” said Issy Wong.
“It was incredible to be part of this initiative; another first for The Hundred as it continues to push the boundaries of sports and entertainment.’
The Hundred 2022 itself begins August 3, with each game specifically designed to last under three hours, with other elements to attract a wider audience, including live music performances during games. Intended to be the perfect summer day out with friends and family of all ages, it has already proved hugely popular in its opening year of 2021.
