The 25,000 capacity Sheikh Zayed Stadium and adjoining international ovals form the nucleus of the Abu Dhabi Cricket complex. The eye-catching grounds have welcomed numerous prestigious teams and events over the years, recently playing host to the 2019 Aldar Properties Abu Dhabi T10, the 2019 ICC World T20 Qualifiers, and the 2018 Asia Cup. The stadium has proudly served as a “home away from home” for Pakistan’s national cricket team since 2009.
Our current international flagship event is the Aldar Properties Abu Dhabi T10. Bringing together over 120 of the biggest names in world cricket to compete in this fast-paced version of the game, the 2019 edition saw over 125,000 fans walk through the gates across the 10-day event. The 2021 edition takes place in January and promises to be another spectacular advertisement for Abu Dhabi and the thrilling game of T10 cricket.
In addition to international fixtures and tournaments, Abu Dhabi Cricket also regularly serves as a leading training venue for international clubs and associations from across the globe. The likes of the England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) England Lions, the Afghanistan National Team, and numerous English County Cricket Clubs have all graced the turf for training camps over recent years.
