“IMCC is not just a cricket club it is a body, a close knit community created by a group of young visionaries with clearly defined values and goals tackling a major problem of young talent exposure and developments.

What the cricket community is saying about IMCC

I am impressed about the coming together of this brotherhood and their contributions to the development of cricket at large with immense focus on youth development. Apart from FCC, this is the second largest gathering of cricketers and friends who have been together from early school days but most importantly, united by the great city of Ibadan. Keep up the great work.
Tayo Atoloye
Vice Chairman Oyo State Sports Council.
IMCC a conglomeration of real gentlemen, have over the years shown a consistency of being amongst the most sustainable player funded clubs that have kept the game of competitive cricket in the front burner and thus cricket alive in Nigeria. I believe that soon as clubs like IMCC get sponsorship, Nigerian cricket will improve not only domestically but international.
Peters "Manny" Ekiejare
Chairman, Club Cricket Committee, Lagos
IMCC a club of young minds and young individuals who have set up the club and kept the club running till date. One of the clubs I admire in the Lagos CCC League. The sky's the stepping stone for the club as they seem to steer in the right directions, having a brilliant mind to keep the ship sailing. This is one of the clubs that will stay in the league and stay relevant in the Lagos cricket circle for a very long time.
