The International 20:20 Club Championship was an international Twenty20 competition for club cricket teams. It was held once, hosted by Leicestershire County Cricket Club from 15 to 17 September 2005. It featured the winners of the domestic Twenty20 competitions from England, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, as well as the Leicestershire Foxes and the PCA Masters XI, a composition of current and past players of international cricket from around the world.[1] The winners were awarded £25,000.[2]

The competition was the first notable attempt at a competition featuring the top domestic Twenty20 teams from around the world. As Twenty20 cricket had only been introduced in 2003,[3] the scale of the competition was limited. Australia, New Zealand and the West Indies were not represented due to their lack of a domestic Twenty20 competition. The competition had limited television coverage and three of the nine games could not proceed due to bad weather.[4] While this competition was only held once, the creation of an international Twenty20 club tournament was executed successfully with the Champions League Twenty20 in 2009.
