USA Cricket is pleased to confirm that all six One Day Internationals, including the four ODIs featuring Team USA, will have free admission for all fans.
“We have worked closely with Cricket Scotland, the Emirates Cricket Board, the ICC and Broward County Stadium officials to be able to announce the details for this CWC League 2 series as early as possible.” said USA Cricket CEO Iain Higgins. “We understand the importance of getting the venue and schedule confirmed as promptly as possible and we are thankful to our guests from Scotland and the UAE, as well as the ICC for their support. As the only ODI accredited venue in the United States at present, and the recent successful host of our last series of matches in this competition, Broward County Stadium was the natural venue for these fixtures. We have been able to schedule two Team USA matches on weekend days and, with free admission, we would encourage everyone in the American cricket community to get behind Team USA as we look to continue our strong start to our campaign.”
