GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.  – Broward County Stadium in Central Broward Park is one of three United States sites to host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in 2024. This is the first time the World Cup will be held in the United States. The ICC T20 World Cup will consist of 55 matches, with 16 played in the U.S., and four at Broward County Stadium in Lauderhill​​:

To celebrate the countdown to the start of cricket season, a 400-pound, 8-foot-tall replica of the ICC T20 World Cup cricket ball will be on display at Las Olas Oceanside Park, 3000 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, starting Friday, February 23, 2024.

The cricket ball will stop at various locations throughout Greater Fort Lauderdale before it heads to its home at the Broward County Stadium, 3700 NW 11th Place, Lauderhill, where the cricket matches will be played in June.
