T20 World Cup 2022 Venues

ICC has finalized venues for T20 World Cup 2022 including Melbourne, Hobart, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Geelong in Australia. Event’s 45 matches will be played at these 7 venues this year. The final schedule for the main ICC mega event is due to be announced shortly.

Melbourne Cricket Ground

Built in 1853, the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is the largest stadium in the Southern Hemisphere and 10th biggest in the world boasting a capacity of over 100,000 people.

It’s a stadium rich in history and the scene of some of Australian sports most memorable moments.

The first cricket match played at the MCG took place in September 1854 while Victoria and New South Wales met in the first inter-colonial match in March 1856.

The MCG is the birthplace of Test Cricket (1877) and one-day international cricket (1971), the home for the AFL Grand Final and hosted the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games along with a range of major international events and concerts.

Outside of Lord’s, the MCG is the only other stadium around the world to host the ICC Cricket World Cup Final more than once (1992 and 2015).

The MCG underwent significant redevelopments in 1991, when the Great Southern Stand was rebuilt, and again in 2003-2005, when the Northern Stand replaced the old Ponsford, Members and Olympic Stands.

In 2022 the MCG will host the Final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Adelaide Oval

Adelaide Oval is the proud centrepiece of this cosmopolitan city. It’s a venue steeped in sporting, arts and cultural history – one loved both for its heritage and modern features. A major renovation completed in 2013 increased the stadium’s capacity to 53,500 and reinforced its reputation for hosting world-class events. Today Adelaide Oval is home to AFL, cricket, soccer, rugby league and sell-out concerts by renowned artists including Adele, Guns N’ Roses and The Rolling Stones.

South Australia has proudly hosted cricket for almost 150 years. Across the decades Adelaide Oval has welcomed record-breaking matches including the first ever day-night Ashes Test in 2017. The ground is also home to the world-famous Bradman Collection Museum – in honour of Australian cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman – and hosts the popular RoofClimb experience, taking visitors skyward for a new view of this very special place. Guided cricket walking tours are also available.

THE GABBA

The Gabba has been the home of cricket in Queensland since 1896 and is well known throughout the cricketing world for hosting all forms of international cricket, as well as Sheffield Shield matches.

It traditionally hosts the first Test match of the Australian summer and will provide a fun and lively atmosphere for fans attending the ICC T20 World Cup.

The Gabba is world renowned for its ‘true’, hard, fast and bouncy pitches – perfect for T20 cricket!

Kardinia Park

Kardinia Park Stadium is one of Victoria’s most impressive stadiums and recent redevelopment of the venue has allowed it to evolve into one of Australia’s leading regional venues and a first-class cricket facility.

It was built in 1941, and has been the home of the Australian Football League side Geelong Cats, and many other domestic and international sporting contests.

The stadium, which seats just over 30,000 people, is the heart and soul of the Kardinia Park Precinct, a community hub that also features netball and aquatic facilities, as well as ample park space and playgrounds.

In recent years, Kardinia Park has welcomed the Big Bash League, international T20 matches, soccer friendlies, super rugby and Nitro Circus as part of its annual events calendar. 

Perth Stadium

Perth Stadium and the surrounding park is located east of the Perth CBD, on the Burswood Peninsula. With views of the picturesque Swan River and Perth city in the west and the foothills in the east, this 60,000-seat, world-class, multi-purpose stadium hosts a variety of sports and entertainment events including Australian Football League, international and Big Bash League cricket, soccer, rugby league and union plus concerts. The stadium officially opened on 21 January 2018.

Sydney Cricket Ground

Steeped in sporting history, the SCG has been providing a wealth of entertainment for over 150 years. Almost every famous Australian cricketer has competed within the historic grounds, which is considered among the country’s architectural treasures. Located within the eastern suburbs of Sydney and adjacent to the central business district, the SCG sits in the cultural heart of Sydney.

The SCG was established on the former 1852 Garrison Ground behind Victoria Barracks, Paddington, by the NSW Cricket Association. Today, the SCG is highly revered as one of the premier cricket venues in the world, hosting the annual New Year Test, One-Day Internationals and is the home ground of the NSW Blues and the Sydney Sixers.

Bellerive Oval

Sydney has Balmain, Melbourne has Williamstown, Perth has Fremantle…and Hobart has Bellerive, an historic harbourside hub that’s home to Bellerive Oval. On the sunny eastern shore of the River Derwent, the ground is a 10-minute drive or ferry ride from central Hobart’s buzzy waterfront.

Bellerive Oval first hosted formal cricket matches in 1914, but it wasn’t until 1987 that Cricket Tasmania upped stumps and relocated here from the other side of the river. The oval has been upgraded significantly over the years: the Ricky Ponting Stand opened in 2015 in time for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, boosting ground capacity to 20,000.

Bellerive Oval currently hosts domestic and international cricket matches over the summer months, and Australian Football League (AFL) games in winter. Don’t miss the Tasmanian Cricket Museum while you’re here: everything you ever wanted to know about David Boon, Tim Paine, Ricky Ponting, Matthew Wade, Max Walker, Amy Smith, George Bailey.
