Champions Trophy

South Africa Confirmed As Host Of Champions Trophy

South Africa will host the 2009 Champions Trophy in September and October following unanimous approval of the venue at an International Cricket Council (ICC) Board meeting.

South Africa was recommended as the host for the eight-team, 12-day tournament following its postponement last year, when it was scheduled to be held in Pakistan, and then concerns about bad weather in Sri Lanka.

The New Wanderers Stadium (Johannesburg) and Centurion Park (Pretoria) will be the two venues used.

The board also agreed that the 2010 ICC World Twenty20 in the West Indies, would be played between 30th April and 16th May in St. Lucia, Guyana, Barbados and St. Kitts.
