ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 is set to be co-hosted by USA and West Indies. The apex cricket body announced that three major cities in the USA will be the venues for the matches in the tournament.
Dallas, Florida and New York have been confirmed as the three major USA cities where the matches will be played for the blockbuster tournament. The venues will be Grand Prairie in Dallas, Broward County in Florida and Nassau County in New York.
“We’re delighted to announce the three USA venues that will host part of the biggest ICC Men’s T20 World Cup ever staged, with 20 teams competing for the trophy. The USA is a strategically important market and these venues give us an excellent opportunity to make a statement in the world’s biggest sport market,” said ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice.
“We explored a number of potential venue options in the country, and we were hugely encouraged by the enthusiasm the event generated amongst prospective hosts, reinforcing the growing awareness around cricket’s massive fanbase and its power to unite diverse communities," added Allardice.
Allardice added that modular stadium technology will be used to increase facilities for the success of the upcoming cricket extravaganza. The stadiums will be increased in size to expand seating and media and premium hospitality areas.
