A new world order

The governing body of world cricket, The International Cricket Council (ICC), moved its headquarters to Dubai Sports City in 2009 helping to solidify the sport’s presence in Dubai and the region.

When the International Cricket Council (ICC) moved to Dubai it brought with it a world-class training academy to match Dubai Sports City’s state-of-the-art facilities. The ICC Academy, it’s extensive practice pitches, and the Dubai International Stadium make Dubai Sports City not only the premier place for Cricket in Dubai, but the region. Facilities include two full-sized, one-day international floodlit ovals, alongside the ICC Academy’s state-of-the-art building and pitches, which offer indoor and outdoor training facilities. These include technology tools for bowlers and batsmen, practice pitches of different surfaces, and indoor nets. The ICC Academy is the only training complex anywhere in the world to offer South Asian, English and Australian practice turf.
