Tickets available on Tuesday for the opening of the Brian Lara Stadium

The official opening of the Brian Lara Cricket Academy (BLCA) in Tarouba will take place on Friday 12 May from 6 pm.

That’s the word from the Ministry of Sport who issued a release announcing that the Local Organising Committee (LOC) responsible for the official opening of the BLCA is reportedly finalising the details of the event.

The Ministry says the Opening Event is intended to celebrate Trinidad and Tobago's cricket icon Brian Charles Lara, at the facility which bears his name, in the ”festive atmosphere of the Caribbean cricket 'party' synonymous with the T20 format.” 

Patrons to the BLCA will witness an Opening Ceremony and enjoy a competitive T20 Exhibition Match featuring players from Trinidad and Tobago, the Caribbean and the world.

Tickets are priced at $100.00 for the marquee event and will be available from Tuesday 9 May at NCLB outlets across the country.
