Expansion coming for seating capacity at the Brian Lara Academy, ahead of ICC T/20 Men’s World Cup

The local organizing committee for the Trinidad and Tobago leg of the ICC Men’s T/20 World Cup has confirmed that there will be an expansion of the seating capacity at the Brian Lara Academy (BLCA) in the Twin Island Republic.

There will be more seating to accommodate approximately 2,400 more spectators at the Multi Purpose Stadium, thus turning the already 15,000-seater complex into a 17,000-plus capacity venue.

Haresh Ragoonath, venue and facilities manager for the T/20 World Cup, said the refurbishing of the venue should be wrapped up within the next three weeks.

The Brian Lara Cricket Academy, in Tarouba, will host five matches in the tournament, including four group matches and the first semifinal.

The tournament which will run from June 1-29 is being co-hosted by the Caribbean and the United States.
