Ireland selected as preferred co-host for ICC Men’s T20 World Cup

The International Cricket Council has announced Ireland as a preferred co-host of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2030 with England and Scotland.

The ICC confirmed the 14 host countries of the ICC men’s white ball events from 2024-2031.

11 Full Members and three Associate Members have been selected to host two ICC Men’s Cricket World Cups, four ICC Men’s T20 World Cups and two ICC Men’s Champions Trophy events.

The hosts were selected via a bidding process overseen by a Board sub-committee chaired by Martin Snedden along with Sourav Ganguly and Ricky Skerritt.

The ICC Board accepted the recommendations of the committee who conducted a thorough review of each bid along with ICC management.

A similar process to identify the hosts for ICC Women’s and U19s events for the next cycle will be undertaken early next year.

The USA and Namibia will host an ICC World Cup event for the first time, while Ireland has previously staged major events and will do so again over the next decade.

Warren Deutrom, Chief Executive of Cricket Ireland, said: "We are delighted to be named as a preferred co-host of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in 2030 – this is great news for Irish cricket fans who will be able to see some of the world’s best cricketers playing in the most dynamic format of the game on Irish shores.

"While we have hosted several ICC qualifier tournaments in the past and of course a 1999 World Cup fixture in Clontarf, this will be the first time multiple matches in a major World cricket event will feature in Ireland.

"We appreciate that there are still a number of details to clarify around hosting arrangements, not just for the co-hosts but also to enable our Government partners to move beyond in-principle support, but today’s announcement gives a greenlight for those discussions to begin in earnest.

"We believe the enormous global exposure of one of world’s major sporting events will provide a huge boost for not just the sport on this island, but also the country through local economic impact and visibility in major tourism and economic markets.

"Working closely on the bid with the England & Wales Cricket Board and Cricket Scotland was a pleasure, and I thank the respective bid teams in our partner Boards for their great professionalism in putting together such a compelling case.

"We now look forward to working closely with them and our Government partners over the coming years to ensure that our eventual staging of whichever matches we host will be as world-class as the bid we submitted."
