2019 World Cup games at the LS

After the inspection and consultation with the London Stadium owners by ICC, it is inevitable thatWorld Cup matches will be played at the London Stadium with around 60k capacity.

And also the opening ceremony and potentially the finals will be held at the LS instead of traditional Lords ground. Are you happy with this?

As the county cricket is in dire conditions, this move will bring less money to county grounds( or none) that used to host matches across the country.

What are your thoughts on this?

Hi Admin..

I appreciate your views! But majority of boards like ECB, BCCI etc; only care money for their dirty pockets! We Indian fans are kind of fed up with BCCI but glad that Supreme Court in India intervened and kicking their backsides.

Good luck though!

This is a catch-22 situation for ECB and ICC.

Obviously with LS, you can accommodate more fans, more revenue and more exposure at the expense of a county ground losing an opportunity to host games. Let's hope whatever money they make will be distributed amongst the counties.

And also With more events, the London Stadium will break even in profits and less burden to the taxpayer. For West Ham fans like myself it's a disaster as our ground(metaphorically) being used for different sports.
