Arnos Vale Stadium is a cricket ground in Arnos Vale, which is situated near Kingstown, St. Vincent. This stadium is a part of Arnos Vale Sports Complex and is a multi-purpose ground. This stadium was established in the 80’s when the first international took place here in 1981 between West Indies and England.

Since then, the stadium has continuously hosted international matches with the ground hosting its maiden Test match in 1997 between West Indies and Sri Lanka which ended in a draw. However, it took 12 years for this place to host its second Test, where the Windies took on Bangladesh in the historic Test match for the visitors. In terms of T20I games, only two matches have been played between West Indies and Pakistan in 2013.

In 2007, before the ODI World Cup 2007 in this region, the ground was renovated entirely in 18 months to keep it match-ready. After renovation, the stadium was awarded various infrastructure facilities which included a large ground area, a new stand on the east side, a new media center, an operation center, and a pavilion was built.
