The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium is one of the three venues that will host the T20 World Cup 2024 matches in the United States.

Constructed on the grounds of Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, New York, the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium is a new modular, temporary stadium that will stage eight T20 World Cup 2024 matches. It has a seating capacity of 34,000.

The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium staged its first T20 international cricket match played between South Africa and Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup 2024. Led by Aiden Markram, South Africa won the game by six wickets.

The newly-built New York cricket stadium will host the high-profile India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup 2024 match on June 9.

Drop-in pitches will be used at this temporary venue for the T20 World Cup 2024. These drop-in pitches have been flown from Adelaide to Florida, and then in New York.

According to reports, the soil for the pitch in New York will be similar to the one witnessed at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.
