    Pakistan to host Champions Trophy 2025

    Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ramiz Raja has thanked the International Cricket Council for awarding the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 to Pakistan, saying the event will showcase Pakistan’s passion for the sport.

    The ICC Board’s decision means Pakistan will defend the ICC Champions Trophy title in their backyard when the eight-team and 15-match tournament is held at three iconic venues in February 2025. Pakistan had defeated India by 180 runs in the 2017 tournament at The Oval.

    PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja: “I am pleased no-end with the ICC’s decision to select Pakistan as a host nation for one of their elite tournaments. By allocating a major global event to Pakistan, the ICC has expressed complete confidence and faith in our management and operational capabilities and skills.

    “We have continued to demonstrate how a great host we are and through the ICC Champions Trophy 2025, we will again showcase our passion and love for the sport as this event will be a boon to the millions of home fans, who will see world class teams and their favourite international players from close quarters.

    “We not only endeavour to plan and deliver a world-class event, we will also prepare and field a strong and formidable side that can perform and entertain our home fans. We saw during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup campaign how the nation got united and the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 at home will be another opportunity to further strengthen that bond as we defend the title.”

    Best news of the year.

    How many years has it been since we last saw an ICC tournament happening in Pakistan. Getting nostalgic vibes now, thinking back to the late 90s and early 2000s when intentional cricket happened in Pakistan. Happy for all the Pakistani fans here. Hopefully it's goes through well and has no pull outs from other teams.

    England, Wales in recent years

    2013 CT
    2017 CT
    2019 WC
    2021 WTC F

    And I think they will host all future WTC finals.

    Dont see it happening here.

    We are negotiating with ttp, so we are brewing for a mess. Plus an icc tournament in pakistan basically means doing everything under heavy security. I doubt teams would be coming

    4 years away bro so a lot can happen in that time.

    A lot depends on the England/Aus tours scheduled for next year and the continued growth of the PSL.

    If the PSL is able to attract key players from each country year on year then it makes the excuses harder to make.

    Stay positive.

    Can easily see the CT being staged in the UAE but 2025 is still long way to go and there could be drastic changes until then. Hoping for the best! #PakistanZindabad

    2027 is 50 Over World Cup that has no qualifying first round . There will be two groups of 7 teams each .

    Zimbabwe and Namibia will play their matches at home , Semi Finals and Finals will be in SA. Same like 2003 WC, where Zimbabwe and Kenya hosted matches in their own venues. That's a good deal for the Zimbabwe and Namibia I would say.

    What am I pleased about:

    2024 T20 World Cup in WI and USA. Love watching cricket in Windies and USA will be really interesting to see. What stadiums will be used in USA? It has so much potential with millions of desis - USA can become one of the best associate teams if there is a bit more exposure and investment.

    2027 ODI world cup in SA, Zim and Nam. Always felt that part of the world deserves more world tournaments.

    2025 CT in Pak is obviously great. Let's assume it happens then we only need 3 stadiums for CT - Karachi, Lahore and probably Pindi will be enough. But can't help but feel it will likely be shifted to UAE. Maybe semi finals and final will be in Pak but i'd be surprised with any more than that (pleasantly).

    So the next edition of the South Asian games scheduled to be hosted in Lahore in 2023 and the ICC Champions trophy in 2025.

    International sports competitions returning to Pakistan. Although I think Pakistan would need to upgrade the sport infrastructure a bit because of the absence of international sport happening in the country for a long time.

    We need to increase the capacity of our stadiums to host an event of such stature. We need venues where at least 50,000 fans can attend and watch the games.

    from which country? i think you have to establish residency in US to play for the team and I don't see that happening easily for the players coming from india/pakistan/south africa. USA does not care about cricket and will not allow special immigration conditions for this.

    For all our efforts, we are granted one ICC event that doesn’t last longer than 2 weeks. Whilst Bangladesh, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Scotland, Ireland and USA have also been provided with one opportunity to host an event.

    So I guess normalcy has resumed now that India has got what it wanted, to host an icc tournament successfully with Pakistan’s participation

    Pakistan should've been selected for a World Cup too. Not just CT.

    2031 World Cup hosting should've gone to Pakistan and Sri Lanka also (along with India and Bangladesh).

    They have to play in US for 3 years and they will be able to represent US internationally. Not that hard.

    There’s more chances of me winning the Euromillions than Pakistan hosting an ICC event in Pakistan in the next 5 years.

    A couple of mentos in a bottle of coke and we’ll see the western bloc running for their lives.

    There’s only 2 options, playing in the UAE or letting Sri Lanka host the CT25 and in return, we get to host the WC in 2035

    Looking forward to see how the current Indian side will be received in Pakistan. Feel like if everything works out. I usually don’t enjoy tournaments in UAE, Sc conditions but will be excited for this.

    I'm extremely excited to see the 2024 matches here in the USA.

    Also. They will find a way to get the Pakistan vs India match into the United States. BANK on it. It will be the first match ever to likely be on ESPN main channel and charging 200 a ticket for the cheap seats is just too good a deal for the ICC. I plan on being there no matter what.

    Stop being so negative. Yes I don't agree with TTP talks but I'm sure our army will take care of things and maintain security. Tbe afghan war is over and the west has left. I see things being peaceful now. Plus 4 years is a long time.

    Looks like both Pakistan and UAE will make preparations to host the tournament. Too many red flags here. Only Pakistan hosting this tournament? Why not share this event with sub continent and also other world cups that India are hosting could be jointly hosted by Pakistan as well.

    Most likely only the qualifying rounds will be played here like how Oman "joint hosted" the recent T20 wc but didn't host any matches from the group stage onward. I think the ICC is going to follow the same formula for every event with a minor "co-host" but the main host will host the bulk of the games especially all the important ones and the knock outs.

    What is there to celebrate about?
    One Champions Trophy in the next 10 years? Terrible.
    And the Big 3 take 7 of the next 10 tournaments.

    Huge opportunity for teams like Bangladesh Afghanistan and Srilanka to win a championship. The conditions in Pakistan might just suit them as well
    Ofcourse favorites will be india and Pakistan
