Bowlers and Strikers to Find Home in New Phoenix-Area Stadium
The Mangat Group is investing $50 million in a world-class cricket stadium in Buckeye, just west of Phoenix. The 20,000 seat stadium, known as MG Cricket Stadium, will sit on 30 acres located north of Interstate 10 on Miller Road.
Tony Mangat explains, “There are limited places for cricket players and enthusiasts to play as games have been played on baseball and soccer fields in recent years. Our goal is to create a dedicated place for all cricket enthusiasts to enjoy the sport with accurate accommodations and proper field dimensions.”
Mangat hopes Phoenix and the MG Cricket Stadium will be a key part of a proposed new American professional cricket league.
Besides the cricket field, the group plans to build a soccer stadium, pickle ball courts along with a training facility. An additional 20 acres will include a hotel and other entertainment venues. Marc Taylor Inc. Construction Management will head up the building effort.
