Named after Antigua's greatest cricketing icon, the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium has been specifically built to be ready in time for the 2007 ICC World Cup. This spanking new stadium will replace the Antigua Recreation Ground as the premier cricket venue in Antigua. The Vivian Richards Stadium has been built with financial assistance from the Peoples Republic of China.
The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium has a seating capacity of 20000 out of
which 10000 are permanent seats. The two large stands of the stadium on
the northern and southern sides have an imposing presence and they will
house the pavilion, corporate suits and the media center.
The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium at Antigua and Barbuda will host six
Second-Round Super 8 matches of the ICC World Cup 2007 between March 27
and April 8, 2007.
