ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Trophy Tour 2024 launched in New York

The ninth edition of the Men’s T20 World Cup begins on 1 June 2024 and will be played across the USA and West Indies. The official launch of the Trophy Tour for the event took place at the famous Empire State Building in New York as the iconic skyscraper lit up in navy and pink – the official tournament colors – with Chris Gayle pulling the lever to illuminate the structure. This will be the first ICC event taking place in the United States and will occur across three venues – the brand new 34,000-seater Nassau County International Stadium in New York, the renovated Grand Prairie Cricket Stadium in Dallas and the Broward County Stadium in Lauderhill.


Two-time T20 World Cup champion Chris Gayle and USA bowler Ali Khan lit up the Empire State Building in New York to launch the Trophy Tour for the upcoming tournament.

New York will host eight matches, while the other two venues will host four games each. West Indies, who are the co-hosts of the event, will have matches taking place at iconic venues such as Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Guyana, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago. The Trophy Tour will reach 15 countries across four continents passing sporting teams and stadia, famous landmarks and legendary cricketers to invite fans to participate in the ‘Out of this World’ cricket festival and glimpse at T20 World Cup’s most coveted prize.

“With less than three months to go until the first ball of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, there is huge anticipation for what will be a historic event for cricket in the Americas,” said Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager, Marketing and Communications. “Cricket has more than a billion fans and we want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to get up close with the trophy that will be lifted by the winning captain in Barbados on 29 June.”
