Tag Cricket Grounds
Cricket administrators aim to dig roots inside countries that don't preciously play the game. Sharjah, then Toronto then Kinrara and (a few in between,)now Belfast in Ireland will host major International teams as a neutral venue. India & South Africa start the show late June 2007 with a 3 ODI series. Question is, what kinda stadium does Ireland have?? lets find out..

Till today - only one one day international has been played here, an Ireland vs England fixture last June. Plenty of runs (302 + 266) were produced with record breaking spectators (7,500 they said) watching it. Although Australia declined to adjust Ireland into their schedule, same amount of runs can be expected when India and South Africa play here. Only question is - how to reach this stormont cricket ground, the road map, location or things like that for new people planning to visit.. Well, Try this forumt . I've written above that the cricket stadium is only 15 mins drive from city centre, but I'll admit I am no Irish. That forum is hosted & participated by Ireland cricket fans, so someone should help your query. I also suggest you try Ireland cricket union official website because tickets and other related information like seating arrangments, Hotels, pricing with others will be produced by them.I promise to find a better picture of Stormont cricket ground as the ODI series comes closer.
