Sydney cricket coup sets scene for exciting T20 World Cup

January 30, 2019 Headline News No Comments Email Email


Sydney will host 14 matches across the Men’s and Women’s ICC T20 World Cup tournaments, including the Opening Celebration at Sydney Showground Stadium featuring Australia’s women taking on India.

For the first time, women’s and men’s competitions will be played as standalone events in the same host country, in the same year with the SCG set to host three of the four semi-finals in both tournaments.

NSW Minister for Sport, Stuart Ayres, said the once-in-a-generation tournament was more evidence of NSW’s major events credentials and encouraged NSW cricket lovers to register for tickets.

“The ICC T20 World Cup is the format’s pinnacle competition with Sydney set to host more matches than any other city,” Ayres said.

“The Opening Celebration will be a world class display of our state’s passion for cricket and culturally diverse population, showcasing Sydney and NSW to a global broadcast audience.

“The atmosphere at the women’s and men’s semi-finals at the SCG will be electric and I urge all NSW cricket lovers to not miss their chance to be part of one of the world’s great sporting spectacles and register for tickets now.”

NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Adam Marshall, said about 37,000 interstate and international visitors were expected to travel to NSW for the 14 matches hosted in Sydney, generating AUD 46 million in visitor expenditure.

“The NSW Government is proud to be hosting 14 games and the opening ceremony that will bring both interstate and international visitors to our great State and ensure the visitor economy remains strong,” Marshall said.

The Women’s T20 World Cup will comprise 10 team playing 23 matches from 21 February – 8 March 2020. The Men’s T20 World Cup will involve 16 teams playing 45 matches from 18 October – 15 November 2020.
