It is a competitive cricket league and is known for its scenic cricket grounds, most notably Stanley Park. According to the league's president, Inamul Desai, the BCMCL is the second-largest cricket league in North America.
In 2016, the league hosted 81 teams (including junior teams), which played 1100 games in the regular season, which lasts from the end of April to mid-September.

Teams that end the season at the bottom of their division are relegated to the lower level.
