Two-time T20 World Cup champion, Chris Gayle, and USA bowler, Ali Khan, illuminated the Empire State Building in New York to commence the Trophy Tour for the forthcoming tournament.

The ninth edition of the Men’s T20 World Cup is set to start on 1 June 2024 and will be hosted across the USA and West Indies.

The official launch of the Trophy Tour was held at the renowned Empire State Building in New York. The iconic skyscraper was bathed in navy and pink, the official tournament colours, with Chris Gayle pulling the lever to light up the structure.

This marks the first ICC event to be held in the United States. The tournament will span across three venues – the brand new 34,000-seater Nassau County International Stadium in New York, the renovated Grand Prairie Cricket Stadium in Dallas, and the Broward County Stadium in Lauderhill.

New York will host eight matches, while the other two venues will host four games each.

West Indies, the co-hosts of the event, will have matches taking place at iconic venues such as Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Guyana, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

The Trophy Tour will traverse 15 countries across four continents, passing sporting teams and stadia, famous landmarks, and legendary cricketers to invite fans to participate in the ‘Out of this World’ cricket festival and get a glimpse of the T20 World Cup’s most coveted prize.

In addition to these 15 countries, the Trophy will also visit emerging Americas cricket countries like Argentina, Brazil, and Canada to entice new fans to the sport.

“With less than three months to go until the first ball of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, there is huge anticipation for what will be a historic event for cricket in the Americas,” said Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager, Marketing and Communications.

“As we countdown to the World Cup, the Trophy Tour provides fans with the opportunity to be part of the event in locations across the globe. The Tour will travel extensively across the Americas, igniting the passion of both new and existing fans to share in the excitement of T20 cricket’s pinnacle global event coming to the region and what better way to kick it off than by lighting up one of the world’s most iconic buildings in one of the world’s most iconic cities.

“Cricket has more than a billion fans and we want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to get up close with the trophy that will be lifted by the winning captain in Barbados on 29 June.”

Fans around the world will be able to follow the Trophy Tour via ICC’s social media channels and the T20 World Cup site.
