Major League Cricket (MLC) has revealed that six matches across its inaugural season in the US have now sold out in its first 10 days of play.
MLC also announced that its first championship finale will be watched by a sold-out crowd at Grand Prairie Stadium.
It was revealed last week that MLC’s inaugural match between the Texas Super Kings and Los Angeles Knight Riders at Grand Prairie Stadium was also a sell-out.
Tonight’s (Monday’s) match between the Texas Super Kings and MI New York at Grand Prairie Stadium has sold out, along with two further games at Church Street Park between the Seattle Orcas and the Super Kings on Friday and Washington Freedom against the San Francisco Unicorns on Saturday.
The matches are being split between Grand Prairie Stadium in Texas and Church Street Park in North Carolina for the inaugural season, which will run until July 30.
Vijay Srinivasan, co-founder of Major League Cricket said: “The passion and excitement seen in the stands on the sold-out opening night of Major League Cricket on Thursday was amazing to behold, and we can’t wait to see more full houses signalling the arrival of a new top tier professional sports league in America.”
The inaugural season currently features six teams: the Los Angeles Knight Riders, MI New York, San Francisco Unicorns, Seattle Orcas, Texas Super Kings and Washington Freedom.
