San Jose could get a cricket stadium

American Cricket Enterprises is working with Santa Clara County to design and seek approval for a state-of-the-art cricket stadium on a 14-acre part of the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds. Cricket is the 2nd most popular sport in the world with 2.6 billion fans.

The stadium would cost around $50 million and have capacity for 6,000-8,000 people, with the potential to expand to 15,000 with temporary seating. It could also be used for concerts and other events.

Eventually Major League Cricket plans to have at least six stadiums in the US with capacity between 6,000-12,000 attendees. The Bay Area is a natural choice for one of those as 20% of the turf wicket grounds in the US where people practice cricket are here.
