The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, located in New York, is nearing the completion of its development phase, as indicated by the latest timelapse footage showcasing the state-of-the-art 34,000-seat arena, including the finalization of the playing surface.

Crafted with meticulous care, the four drop-in pitches, bedecked with native Tahoma 31 Bermuda grass, underwent cultivation in Florida under the expert guidance of Adelaide Oval Turf Solutions and LandTek Group, before being transported over 1000 miles to their current location, with logistical support from DP World, the ICC’s Official Global Logistics Partner.

Over the past four months, Eisenhower Park has witnessed a remarkable transformation, evolving from a mere grass field into a premier cricket destination. Progress is evident with the ongoing construction of the north and south premium hospitality and media pavilions, promising a sensational viewing experience and top-notch hospitality for all attendees. The newest additions include Cabana seats in the north pavilion and Corner Club seats, featuring a private party area for an authentically American cricket experience.
