Manchester and District Cricket Association (MDCA) was an English cricket association which contained 17 teams spread around the Greater Manchester area. Founded in 1892, it supported two leagues for teams playing First XI cricket, two for Second XI cricket and a single league for Third XI teams; not all teams have a Third XI, which accounts for this difference. It was wound up after the 2013 season.
