Stands used at the Las Vegas Grand Prix will be repurposed as seating for the 34,000-capacity Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, designed by US architect Populous.

The modular stadium will host eight cricket matches from the 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, which is taking place in the US and the West Indies this June.

Construction of the stadium, which is located 30 miles east of Manhattan, will begin in February.

The completed project will contain 80,000 sq ft of hospitality space, including a party deck, fan suites, cabanas and VIP clubs.

The wicket for the ground, which was designed in Australia and grown in Florida, will be transported to New York in early May.

The Parker Company will project manage the build on behalf of T20 Inc.

Jeff Keas, Populous’ senior principal, said: “Cricket is a truly global sport with a passionate, knowledgeable fanbase and we’re thrilled to partner with the ICC and help bring the Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup to the US.

“The modular, sustainable stadium we’ve designed will create a fantastic experience for both US and international cricket fans and visitors to enjoy watching the world’s best teams and players.”
