Dallas, Florida and New York named as USA's host venues for 2024 T20 World Cup

Dallas, Florida and New York will stage matches at next year's Men's T20 World Cup, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced.

The June tournament is set to be played in the United States for the first time, with the West Indies as co-hosts.

Grand Prairie in Dallas, Broward County in Florida and Nassau County in New York have been named as host venues in the US.

The Nassau County matches will take place at a 34,000-seat stadium to be built in Eisenhower Park, while the games in Grand Prairie and Broward County will be staged in existing venues which are to be expanded.

ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said: "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.

"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 fan base and its power to unite diverse communities."
