From Dubai to the USA: Heading to the 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup


This year the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will be held jointly by the USA and the West Indies. The press release from the International Cricket Council has announced 55 matches that will take place from June 2nd to June 29th, 2024.

The decision to choose the USA as the host country for this prestigious tournament pursues two strategic goals: to utilize the potential of the North American market for the development of cricket and to fulfill the ambitions of the International Cricket Council in including cricket in the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.

The matches will be held at three venues in the USA – Dallas, Florida and New York, as well as seven venues in the Caribbean basin – Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago.

The competition will involve 20 teams, which will be divided into four groups (with five teams in each):

  • The USA and the West Indies have received automatic qualification as host countries.
  • The top eight teams of the 2022 tournament also qualified. They are Australia, England, India, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
  • The next two countries with the highest rating: Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
  • European qualifiers: Ireland and Scotland.
  • Qualifying matches in the East Asia/ Pacific region: Papua New Guinea.
  • American qualifiers: Canada.
  • Asian qualifiers: Nepal and Oman.
  • African qualifiers: Namibia and Uganda.

The 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup promises to be truly massive! Although both Texas and Florida already have all the infrastructure for hosting cricket competitions, the International Cricket Council aims to increase the capacity of both stadiums. This year fans will be able to enjoy world-class cricket in the most modern venues.

In addition, the International Cricket Council has announced its intention to build a modern modular stadium with a capacity of 34,000 people in Nassau County, New York. The location for construction has been chosen as Eisenhower Park. It is located just 30 miles east of Manhattan and provides easy access for fans from all over New York.

The 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will kick off in Dallas, where the opening match between Canada and the USA will take place on June 2nd, and the grand final will be held on Barbados on June 29th.
