Supporters of the England Cricket Team


Welcome to the official website of The Addis Army, a bunch of cricket fans that follow the England cricket team all round the world on every England tour. Our group was formed back on the 2004/05 tour to South Africa when for reasons best known to ourselves, we went to South Africa via Addis Ababa on the glorious Ethiopian Airlines.

In 2006 we received official recognition from former England captain Michael Vaughan and in Australia from England batsman Ian Bell (thanks for the drinks Belly!). King of swing Matthew Hoggard gave his backing to the Army over a game of pool in the back streets of Pakistan. This is our official website, read on and enjoy and if you see us at games please come over and join us for a beer or two.

10 year celebration

2015 represents 10 years since our first tour to South Africa. Since that first tour we've made many great friends and we invite everyone to join us for our celebrations at Wormsley on June 30th where an ex-England XI will be taking on an ex-Australia XI.
