New York Cricket Stadium Being Dismantled After Hosting Final T20 World Cup Match

New York Cricket Stadium dismantling

New York’s Nassau County Cricket Stadium, a temporary venue built specifically for the T20 World Cup 2024, has begun its dismantling process following the completion of its last match, as reported by Cricbuzz.

Constructed in just 106 days, the ‘pop up’ stadium began its six-week dismantling immediately after Wednesday’s USA-India match concluded.

Located in Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, Long Island, the stadium turned the park into a secure venue for the tournament’s duration. Now, Eisenhower Park will revert to its original state, with muddy, grassy, and dusty areas reopened for public access. Previously, entry was strictly controlled during the two-week tournament.

The modular stadium hosted eight group stage matches, including the high-profile India-Pakistan game. Following the tournament, the temporary structures will be removed, leaving the outfield as a lasting legacy.

The future of the pitches remains uncertain. Nassau County authorities, in consultation with the International Cricket Council (ICC), will decide whether to maintain and manage them. Alternatively, the ICC might relocate the drop-in pitches, created with expertise from South Australia, to a different location. Regardless, the outfield will remain unchanged.

Initial plans to host Major League Cricket (MLC) games at this venue were met with lukewarm interest from MLC authorities and franchises. While a dedicated cricket stadium could be built in the future, it is unlikely to be at this site.
