The passes for the tournament have been distributed across 200 schools in select cities through a school contact programme. The passes have also been sent to the participants of the “Apna Yaar” contest and the Toon Cricket on-line gaming championship on the channel's website.

Moreover, Toon Cricket 2005 representatives visited over 100,000 kids through a 200-school-wide contact program in select cities with exciting pre-event activities.
