The ICC has confirmed Caribbean venues for the 2024 T20 World Cup.

The West Indies and the United States will host the 2024 Men’s T20 World Cup.

The Caribbean locations for the 2024 T20 World Cup, which will be contested in the West Indies and the United States, have been announced as Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago. The ICC previously announced three US venues: Dallas, Florida, and New York.

The competition, which will take place from June 4 to June 30, will feature up to 20 teams. The two host countries, as well as the top eight teams from the 2022 T20 World Cup – Australia, England, India, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, and Sri Lanka – receive automatic qualifying. The following two teams, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, qualified based on their T20I standings at the end of the previous T20 World Cup. The Qualifiers secured berths for Ireland, Scotland, and Papua New Guinea. The Americas Qualifier, Asia Qualifier, and Africa Qualifier will determine five extra berths.

“We’re delighted to announce the seven Caribbean venues that will host the biggest ICC Men’s T20 World Cup ever staged, with 20 teams competing for the trophy,” ICC chief executive Geoff Allardice said of the multi-team event. They’re all popular with players and fans alike, and they’ll provide for a great backdrop to the tournament.

“This will be the West Indies’ third ICC senior men’s event, and the matches will once again provide cricket fans with the unique experience of watching cricket in the Caribbean.” I’d want to express my gratitude to Cricket West Indies and the seven host governments for their ongoing dedication to and support of our sport.”

“This is an exciting moment as we announce the venues approved to host the largest ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in history, with 20 teams playing in 55 matches in June next year,” said Johnny Grave, CEO of Cricket West Indies.

“We are grateful to the Caribbean host governments for their overwhelming support and enthusiasm in hosting what will be the most significant sporting event held in our region in a generation.”

“We are confident that together, we will deliver a world-class tournament showcasing the best that this region has to offer with our unique culture and carnival atmosphere, ensuring a true celebration of the sport next June,” Grave said.
