The English open teams-of-four championship.
This is England's premier teams championship. It consists of knock-out matches in the early stages, played privately, qualifying eight teams to contest an all-play-all final.
The competition is part of the Championship Series, in which points can be earned towards the Player of the Year Championship.
The Crockford's Plate competition will be open to all unseeded teams who are defeated in their first match of the main event, be this in round 1, or in round 2 following a bye.
The last 8 from the Crockfords Plate will play alongside the main final (same dates, venue and format).
The finals of the 2016/17 Crockfords Cup were available to watch on Funbridge Live, and the coverage is now in their archive.
To access the coverage, open Funbridge and log-in (if you have not yet downloaded the Funbridge app to your mobile device, or the Funbridge platform to your desktop/laptop, and created an account, you can find instructions for doing so here). Once you have logged in, click on the icon for live coverage - it will be at the bottom of the screen and looks like a TV with an aerial (it is highlighted in red on the adjacent screenshot).
