Queen's Park

Location: St George's, Grenada
Established: 1998
Capacity: 20000

The New Queen's Park cricket stadium was built in 1998 as part of the newly constructed National Stadium complex in St George's, Grenada. Also known as the National Cricket Stadium, the New Queen's Park stadium became the 84th Test venue in 2002 when it hosted a Test between West Indies and New Zealand.

As the brand new stadium was gearing up for the 2007 ICC World Cup, it suffered extensive damage when Hurricane Ivan scythed through the Caribbean in September, 2004. The roofing for the covered stands as well as the fittings that made up the double-decker stands at the cricket stadium was destroyed by the hurricane winds.

The Queens Park Stadium in Grenada will host six of the 24 Super Eight matches in the 2007 World Cup.
