Cricket is becoming more and more popular in South Florida, and local businesses and communities will be positively impacted by the opportunity to host the Cricket World Cup. Our commitment to the South Florida soccer fans and players is to fully resume our soccer operations in Central Broward County Stadium on August 1, 2024.”
Joel Nash, SVP, Youth and Pre-Professional Properties, said: “While we’ll miss FC Miami City in League Two and League W this season, we understand the circumstances and appreciate that the club wants to ensure a consistently positive experience for players, coaches, and fans.

They’ve been a great long-term partner, and they’ll continue to build on the constantly growing sports scene in South Florida.”
