SAN FRANCISCO: Minor League Cricket announced on Thursday that the third season of America’s cricket championship will conclude at the nation’s premier cricket venue, Grand Prairie Stadium, in Grand Prairie, TX, on October 1.

Located in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Grand Prairie Stadium opened in July 2023, hosting 12 matches in the inaugural season of Major League Cricket (MLC) including the historic championship final on July 30.

The world class cricket venue will provide the best stage in American cricket for Minor League Cricket to crown a champion following 150 matches across two months of play. MiLC serves as a key pathway to MLC for domestic players, with many of its stars playing in the historic competition earlier this summer.

“The third season of the Sunoco Minor League Cricket championship is being hotly contested by 26 teams across the country and the opportunity to play for the title at Grand Prairie Stadium – the best venue for cricket in the United States – will only heighten the competition as the race for the playoffs intensifies, ” said Zubin Surkari, Tournament Director, Minor League Cricket. “We’re excited to bring thrilling T20 action back to the Dallas-area again this summer.”

In addition to top class T20 cricket, fans will be able to enjoy activations from vendors including Sunoco, the title partner of Minor League Cricket, and Laxmi, a leading South Asian food brand.
