ICC’s Official Statement About T20 World Cup 2024
As of now, all are sorts of speculations, not an official confirmation because ICC has not officially confirmed the venues for the upcoming T20 World Cup. But it is expected that the official statement regarding the same will come out within months as the officials of ICC and New York City are currently in substantive talks for the construction of a similar pop venue in Van Cortlandt Park.
It is believed that an MLC venue, a North Carolina venue, and Church Street Park in Morrisville are the possible venues to host the men’s T20 World Cup. However, the facility is devoid of any permanent structure or practice facilities.
