New York cricket stadium to be dismantled after T20 World Cup; Ambanis to build new facility


New York, June 16, 2024: The Nassau County Stadium in New York, which hosted eight matches of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, is set to be dismantled. The temporary stadium, located in Eisenhower Park, was built in just 106 days and featured drop-in pitches from Adelaide, Australia. According to reports, the Ambanis will build a new stadium in New York.

The dismantling process began last Wednesday, immediately after the India-USA game. It will take around six weeks to complete the disassembly.

Eisenhower Park will soon return to its original state, and the public will regain free access to the park, which had restricted entry during the tournament.

The future of the drop-in pitches used in the stadium is uncertain. An ICC official told Cricbuzz that Nassau County authorities could keep and maintain them if they choose. Otherwise, the ICC will relocate the pitches to a different location where they are needed. However, the outfield will stay in its current place.

There were plans to host some Major League Cricket (MLC) games at the Nassau County Stadium. However, the MLC authorities and franchises were not very interested in this idea. Although there might be a new full-fledged cricket stadium in New York in the future, it is unlikely to be at this location. New York is the base for the Mumbai Indians team (MI NY) in the MLC, and the Ambanis, who own the team, are expected to build a new stadium, according to Crickbuzz.
