ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024: Three US stadiums to host matches. Details here – Magazine Creations

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed three major cities in the United States: Dallas, Florida and New York, as venues for the 2024 Men’s T20 World Cup.

The United States is set to host the T20 World Cup for the first time, with Grand Prairie in Dallas, Broward County in Florida and Nassau County in New York selected as venues for the mega event.

The USA and the West Indies were named co-hosts of the World Series in November 2021, when the ICC Board awarded them the hosting rights. The locations were chosen after a comprehensive evaluation of several options.

Modular stadium solutions will be implemented to increase facilities for the upcoming event. An agreement has been reached to build a 34,000-seat model stadium at Eisenhower Park, a purpose-built sports and events park in Nassau County, New York, when the required permit is granted next month.

Grand Prairie and Broward County will be augmented with modular stadium solutions to expand seating, media and premium hospitality areas subject to final agreement.

ICC CEO Geoff Allardyce was delighted to announce the venues for the biggest ever T20 World Cup,

“We are thrilled to announce the three venues in the US that will host part of the biggest Men’s T20 World Cup ever, with 20 teams vying for the trophy. The US is a strategically important market, and these venues give us an excellent opportunity to have a say in the world’s largest sporting market.” “

He added that awareness of cricket’s huge fan base and its ability to unite diverse communities is growing in the United States.

“We have explored a number of potential venue options in the country and have been very encouraged by the enthusiasm this event has generated among potential hosts, which has fostered a growing awareness of cricket’s huge fan base and its ability to unite diverse communities.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to use modular stadium technology to deliver world-class cricket at a location that has not previously hosted an ICC global event giving USA cricket fans the opportunity to watch the best matches in the world on their doorstep.

“This technology has been used at previous ICC events to increase venue capacity and is routinely used in other major sports around the world. In the USA, it will give us the opportunity to increase the size of venues in both Dallas and Florida and create what will be an amazing venue in New York.”

Nassau County Executive Bruce Blackman was excited to partner with the ICC to host the T20 World Cup next year.

“Nassau County is excited to partner with the ICC to host the Men’s T20 World Cup, one of the most popular sporting events in the world. With over a billion fans worldwide, this event will attract fans from around the world to Eisenhower Park.

“Whether it’s PGA events, record-breaking concerts at our parks, or the annual Belmont Stakes, we are no stranger to hosting large-scale events on the world stage. I look forward to bringing our diverse communities together to watch some of the best cricket in the world, right here In Nassau County.”

Several other potential venues have been identified for matches and training prior to the event. These include George Mason University in Washington, home of the Washington Freedom Cricket League (MLC).
