Bulldozers arrive to dismantle T20 World Cup’s pop-up stadium in New York’s Nassau County

Several bulldozers have surrounded Nassau County International Stadium in New York as authorities prepare to dismantle it following the ICC T20 World Cup match between India and the USA held yesterday.

Located in Eisenhower Park, the stadium hosted eight matches during the Group Stage, including the highly anticipated India versus Pakistan clash on Sunday, which India thrillingly won by six runs.

The stadium uses drop-in pitches, which are prepared off-site and installed before each match. Temporary stands, accommodating up to 34,000 spectators and designed by Populous, were swiftly erected, with turf supplied by LandTek Group, known for successful projects with New York’s Major League Baseball teams and Inter Miami Major League soccer team.

The drop-in turf square was curated in Florida by Adelaide Oval Turf Solutions and head curator Damian Hough, transported in pieces on a 20-hour journey before being assembled at the venue.

An International Cricket Council (ICC) official confirmed to ANI that the stadium will be dismantled, leaving the pitch and ground for local use.

Constructed within 75 days at a cost of Rs 250 crore, the stadium’s legacy will endure through its pitch and grounds.
