USA Cricket host Ireland in first home series against Full Member

USA Cricket to host Ireland in first home series against Full Member in December 2021.






Ireland Men’s cricket team is set to become the first Full Member nation to tour the United States to play against the USA Men’s national team in Florida this December. 

The USA vs Ireland tour will be played over the Christmas period and is the first-ever multi-format white-ball series between the two sides.



 The five-match series between the two senior teams will feature two T20 Internationals and three One-Day Internationals, all of which will be played at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Florida. 



The series precedes Ireland’s scheduled World Cup Super League Series with the West Indies in January in the Caribbean (venues and match dates to be announced shortly).

Warren Deutrom, Chief Executive Officer of Cricket Ireland, said:



“We are delighted to confirm the tour of the USA as part of our preparations for the crucial ICC Cricket World Cup Super League series against the West Indies. The chance to play five competitive white-ball fixtures – including three matches under lights – will be important as our players return to the field after a few weeks off.”

“With a large population of Irish expats and emigrants in the United States, we hope to see a good turn out of support for our squad and look forward to spending time in one of the USA’s best cricket facilities.”


Iain Higgins, Chief Executive Officer of USA Cricket, said:



“USA Cricket is absolutely elated to confirm next month’s series’ with Cricket Ireland that we have been working on over the past few months as we continue to try and expand the playing opportunities for our national teams. To be able to bring an ICC Full Member to the United States to play a series of five international matches is an historic and hugely significant step forward for cricket here in America.”

“We hope that this series helps to showcase the potential in American cricket with it being the first ever home series of international matches against a Full Member. We will be announcing ticketing details next week and hope that the timing of the series will give people a great opportunity to come along and see high-class international cricket in the flesh next month in Florida.”
