Eisenhower Park, properly referred to as the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium is a stadium in New York that will be temporarily serving for cricket. It is being established as a modular and temporary venue to host the T20 World Cup 2024 matches. It is assigned to host one of the biggest matches of the World Cup, India vs Pakistan on June 9.

In September last year, the ICC proposed the name of the Eisenhower Stadium to host the World Cup matches alongside Florida and Texas. New York is one of the most populous regions of the US that helped in boosting ticket sales, not just for the India-Pakistan clash, but also for the other seven matches, it is assigned to host.

Though the stadium has been established only as a temporary venue, it will be the largest cricket stadium in the country, if we count the capacity criteria. The stadium will have the availability to accommodate around 34,000 spectators on the ground at the same time. The high capacity will also help more viewers gather under one roof when India will lock horns against Pakistan here.

Despite being the latest stadium in the country to host cricket matches, the ICC has given this stadium the responsibility to host a maximum number of matches. In fact, after the Kensington Oval in Barbados, it will host the most number of matches in the showpiece event. Apart from the iconic Ind-Pak battle, the stadium is entitled to host the Sri Lanka vs South Africa fixture and India will play three games here.

2024 T20 World Cup: Eisenhower Park Stadium- Pitch Report

With the stadium being made temporarily, the pitch that is being implanted here is not permanently made either. The pitch was imported from the Adelaide Cricket Ground in Australia, hence, it will also offer the same conditions to the players. The pitch in Adelaide ground is supportive of bounce, and pace, gradually becoming a batting-supportive wicket. The pitch here is also expected to behave the same.
