Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Knight Riders group has partnered with USA Major League Cricket (MLC) T20 to build a world-class cricket stadium in Los Angeles. They have moved forward with lease negotiations and design approvals for the aforementioned project on a 15-acre parcel at Great Park.
“Our investment in MLC in America is based on our belief in the exciting future of cricket in the USA and is well-aligned to our strategy of establishing Knight Riders as a global brand in T20 cricket. Plans to build a world-class cricket stadium in the greater Los Angeles area is exciting for us and MLC. This will no doubt have a transformational impact on one of the world’s most iconic metropolitan areas,” said the actor.
The statement further claimed that the cricket stadium will include state-of-the-art training facilities, locker rooms, luxury suites, dedicated parking, concessions, field lighting and an international-grade pitch to meet International Cricket Council (ICC) accreditation and allow the venue to host the highest level of international cricket competition.
