Bronx pols, locals mount growing opposition to cricket stadium in Van Cortlandt Park


The city’s proposal for a 34,000-seat stadium to host the International Cricket Council’s 2024 T20 World Cup in Van Cortlandt Park was met with growing opposition in Riverdale Friday morning.

During a joint press conference at the park’s Parade Ground Athletic Fields, Riverdale pols joined community groups and members of the public to send a clear message to City Hall: They want to see this project die.
