LOC Working to Enhance World Cup Fan Experience

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the Trinidad and Tobago leg of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup West Indies and USA 2024 will be taking steps to enhance fan experience as Afghanistan gears up to take on Papua New Guinea tonight at Brian Lara Cricket Academy (BLCA), Tarouba.

The LOC was pleased with most areas of the first match day hosted yesterday (12 June 2024) between West Indies and New Zealand, including the on-field action and second-to-none atmosphere. The Committee thanks the local and visiting fans for their support at a packed BLCA.

However, the Committee acknowledges and apologises to fans for the challenges they faced in being transported to and from the venue—especially the delays in the shuttle service—and in accessing the venue. In addition, some patrons opted to walk to the parking zones after leaving the venue due to the turnaround time of repeat shuttle trips.

The LOC has met with the various agencies involved in the Park and Ride system, reviewed the day’s proceedings, and is working diligently to address the gaps identified on Wednesday evening. This includes enhancing traffic management, as well as ensuring the public adheres to the processes for parking and accessing BLCA.

In addition, the LOC asks patrons to exercise patience in accessing the shuttles provided for their convenience when departing the venue. All spectators will be accommodated on this service. However, due to the volume of patrons, some users may have a wait time for the next available shuttle. Every effort is being made to minimise wait times and venue access.

Finally, the LOC congratulates the West Indies on a strong performance in beating New Zealand by 13 runs to qualify for the Super Eight stage of the tournament. Our best wishes to the regional team for the rest of the T20 World Cup.
