Council Member Ruben Wills introduced a bill this Tuesday to explore the feasibility of building a cricket stadium in Queens. The New York Post reports that Council Member Willis believes the stadium will give the borough an economic boost — “We have the largest and fastest-growing population of Indo-Caribbean and south Asian populations. Everywhere in the world cricket is the number two sport, only behind [soccer],” Wills stated. “We want to make sure we can introduce this into mainstream New York and we also want to look at the end game of creating a cricket stadium in New York.” The bill proposed a 10-member task force to study the impacts of the sport in New York City, as well as the potential use of park land for cricket fields. Currently there is only one cricket stadium in the country, in Lauderhill, Florida.
