The stir of something new permeates the air. It’s refreshing, stimulating, and feels like exhilaration on another worldly level. Subways, buses, planes, and cars will soon be packed with purpose-driven passengers, as a different type of sports fan makes their way to one of three US stadiums.

They are traveling to New York, Texas, and Florida, from nearby cities, and even other countries. These fans booked their tickets as soon as the ballots opened on 2 February because they know what the USA is about to experience and they don’t plan to be left out. They aim to show the world how it’s done.

Start spreading the news… the ICC Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup is coming to America!

This is the moment that American-based cricket fans of the diaspora have long awaited. For years, they have stayed up, tuned in, and followed live matches as they played out in other parts of the world. Never for a moment did they imagine it would one day come to them. The game that has captivated billions throughout Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean, the game that has never featured among great sports played on American soil, will for the first time be coming to America in its most captivating format.

This year, cricket has come to break boundaries, cross new frontiers, and energise a new fan base. To ensure its place in historical firsts, and to seize its place in the spotlight, New York City will have the pleasure of welcoming up to 34,000 fans to the Nassau County Cricket Stadium in Eisenhower Park. The other two venues are the Grand Prairie Cricket Stadium in Dallas, Texas, and the Broward County Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida.
