Toronto's annual CIMA Mayor's Trophy cricket tournament a success
The Toronto Police Services cricket team won the CIMA Mayor's Trophy for 2013 in an exciting match against the CIBC cricket team this weekend. The employee cricket team from Rogers Communications won the CIMA Media Trophy and KPMG won the CIMA Accountants’ Trophy.

Among the many enthusiastic spectators at the event, held in Sunnybrook Park, were Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, Malcolm Furber, President of Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), Raza Hasan, Senior Vice President of CIBC, Mahes Wickramasinghe, Senior Vice President of Rogers, and NewsTalk 1010 host John Tory.

"The ninth annual CIMA Mayor's Trophy has drawn prominent Torontonians to the cricket field, showcasing the importance of cricket in connecting diverse communities," said Mayor Ford. "The sport of cricket is gaining new players and great popularity every year in Toronto."

The event is held in partnership with CIMA, CIBC, Rogers, Newstalk 1010, Onestop Network, Tom's Place and several other community partners who joined CIMA in supporting this year's event.

"Since its launch in 2005, CIMA Mayor's Trophy has helped bring a diverse group of community partners together. The success of this event has helped CIMA assist aspiring young cricketers to fulfil their dreams," said Michael Lam, Deputy Chair CIMA Canada.

The Mayor's Trophy, with the help of a myriad of sponsors and community partners, helps to bring cricket to the broader Toronto community.

"CIBC is proud to support an inclusive event that is engaging children in our community in a healthy activity and fostering the growth of cricket in one of the world's most multicultural cities," said Hasan.

Another CIMA initiative, the third annual CIMA Mayor's School Cricket Tournament for the CIBC Trophy, was played in May.
