With only a month until the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, development on the enormous new Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York is well underway. The state-of-the-art 34,000-seat facility will host seven showpiece matches during the tournament, including the highly anticipated meeting between archrivals India and Pakistan on June 9.

The necessity for a world-class cricket stadium in the United States was highlighted when the ICC announced that the West Indies and the United States would host the 2024 T20 World Cup in late 2019. With a big South Asian community in the New York metro region that like cricket, organizers chose Nassau County as the appropriate location for a grand new playing facility.

The cutting-edge modular stadium architecture will enable quick building timeframes. An ICC time-lapse video shows that tremendous progress has been made in the last month. Cranes are putting the modular components into place to form the tall East Stand framework, which will house 12,500 supporters.

“It is really thrilling to observe the progress achieved in the development of the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York during the last month. Work on the outfield began in January, and in recent weeks, the East Stand framework has begun to take shape,” said Chris Tetley, ICC Head of Events.

In addition to the main stadium bowl, construction is proceeding on the outfield, as well as the north and south premium hospitality and media pavilions, which will house broadcasters, advertisers, and VIPs. The first official match here will be between South Africa and Sri Lanka on June 3. Interestingly, the Men in Blue will play three of their four league games at the site.
