ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 preparations continue at speed with the first ball of the event now just 60 days away, marking the occasion additional tickets to the biggest cricket carnival ever will be going on sale on Thursday 4 April at 10 a.m. ET.

A second timelapse video was also released to celebrate 60 days to go showcasing the significant progress that has been made in the construction of the innovative 34,000-seat modular Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York which is hosting eight ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 matches.

Demand for World Cup tickets remains high, but fans can now book their place at the World Cup, by accessing additional limited tickets for six matches at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, which includes India versus Ireland on 5 June and USA against India on 12 June. Limited tickets will also be available for all four matches at the Grand Prairie Cricket Stadium in Texas, including the opening World Cup match featuring the USA and Canada on 1 June.

The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium project in Eisenhower Park, New York, 30 miles east of Manhattan continues to rapidly take shape. Work is nearing completion on the modular framework for the East Stand while the West Stand is on schedule to be finished in two weeks. Together, these two stands house more than 24,000 fans – and the final pieces are being put in place for the north and south premium hospitality and media pavilions, as well as the modular stadium’s outfield, and the pitch block still maturing in South Florida.

Excitement about the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup has been building as fans most recently celebrated the launch of the out-of-this-world Trophy Tour at New York’s Empire State Building, before the Trophy visited the Nassau County venue in a New York-inspired ceremony with appearances by two-time T20 World Cup champion Chris Gayle and USA player Ali Khan.

ICC Head of Events, Chris Tetley said: “We are delighted to be marking 60 days to go to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. The project to build a fully modular stadium in Nassau County is a first for international cricket and we are delighted that construction is progressing full as planned. The scale of the venue in the latest timelapse is impressive and a visit to the stadium is not to be missed.

“Fans still have the opportunity to be a part of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA, as a limited release of tickets will take place on Thursday, with tickets and/or hospitality available for every match. Fans should visit tickets.t20worldcup.com to make sure they don’t miss out.”

T20 USA, Inc. CEO Brett Jones said: “What has been accomplished in just two short months of construction in Nassau County is truly unprecedented and as we mark the 60 days to go, we’re excited to welcome cricket fans from all over the world to this first-of-its kind international cricket venue. Fans should be sure to visit tickets.t20worldcup.com to ensure they have the opportunity to see it for themselves.”
