The 34,000-seat stadium is set to host eight matches for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, including the highly anticipated fixture between India and Pakistan on June 9.

Designed by the renowned architectural firm Populous, known for iconic stadiums like the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, this stadium promises a unique experience. It will incorporate grandstands previously used for the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix, showcasing sustainability in its design.

The project emphasizes the importance of sustainability, and repurposing materials to create an environmentally friendly venue. The grandstands, originally utilized for the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix, are being repurposed for the T20 World Cup venue.

The stadium, located 30 miles east of Manhattan, is strategically positioned for easy access, featuring good transport links and ample parking facilities. Three train stations in the vicinity further enhance accessibility.

Notably, the stadium won’t only cater to cricket enthusiasts but also aims to deliver a world-class experience for all guests. With various seating options, a dedicated fan zone, diverse food and beverage outlets, and state-of-the-art media and broadcast areas, it promises to be more than just a cricket venue.

The venue’s wicket, a drop-in square akin to those at Adelaide Oval and Eden Park, is currently being curated in Florida and will be transported to New York in early May.

Cricket fans are in for a treat with a festival of cricket, witnessing the world’s best players in action during the eight T20 World Cup matches hosted at the venue, beginning with the clash between Sri Lanka and South Africa on June 3.

The fixtures for the 2024 T20 World Cup promise an exciting lineup, with teams from around the world competing in various matches across different locations, culminating in the semi-finals and final on June 26, 27, and 29, respectively.
