Legends League Cricket has announced that the upcoming season of the league (LLC 2023) is to be played across five cities in India. Ranchi, Dehradun, Jammu, Vizag and Surat will be hosting this season.
The third season of the franchise edition of Legends League Cricket will have 19 matches and is all set to start from November 18 to December 9, 2023.
Legends League Cricket has chosen these venues in an effort to give fans in these cities an experience like never before with over 100 international cricketers playing there. Where the last season had teams competing in 15 matches across major venues in the country including Eden Gardens, Kolkata and Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi, this season will have 19 matches across five venues. LLC season 2 promised to be bigger and better in every aspect.
The season will commence with Ranchi hosting the first five matches at the JSCA Stadium, followed by Dehradun hosting three matches. Jammu will host four matches at the Maulana Azad Stadium which is the first time for the city to host a league with so many legends playing together. Vizag will host the remaining three league-stage matches. The final leg of Legends League Cricket Season 2 will be hosted by Surat at the Lalbhai Contractor Stadium.
Raman Raheja, Co-Founder & CEO, Legends League Cricket said, “During the last season, we had committed ourselves to take the sport to cities where international matches are not played as much. To be true to our word we have picked up cities which have either seen less or been deprived of international cricket matches. The euphoria around legends was amazing in the stadiums as well across cities where we have played in India last year. First time in history, one had 80-plus legends being present in one city like Jodhpur. We had full house occupancy in almost all the matches. We expect similar response from the audience of these cities.”
Ravi Shastri, Commissioner, Legends League Cricket said, “The game is getting bigger each day at Legends League Cricket. With more and more players joining, we must keep the fire burning and give fans the chance to witness the best competitive cricket across the new venues. I would say that Legends are going to rock this season.”
