USA, Pakistan among 17 to express interest to host ICC events

The United States and Pakistan are among 17 member states that have expressed interest in hosting ICC events in the 2024-2031 FTP cycle, either individually or jointly.

Preliminary Technical Proposal

Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, Malaysia, Namibia, New Zealand, Oman, Scotland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, UAE, and Zimbabwe are among the countries that have submitted a “preliminary technical proposal” to the ICC for the same.

In September, the 17 countries will submit a more thorough proposal, and the ICC Board will make the final decision.

“We are delighted with the response from our Members to hosting ICC men’s white-ball events post 2023. This process gives us an opportunity to extend our range of hosts and grow interest in cricket worldwide, reaching more fans whilst creating a long-term legacy for the sport,” ICC Acting Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said.

“Cricket has more than a billion fans around the world and ICC events have a proven track record of bringing significant economic and social benefits for host countries. These events provide hosts with a wonderful opportunity to work closely with local communities to grow the game whilst supporting economic and social development public policy goals.”

The Pakistan Cricket Board has already stated that it is interested in hosting six ICC events in the next cycle and hopes to secure the hosting rights to “at least one event.” Bangladesh Cricket Board is interested in hosting the Champions Trophy in 2025.
