Cricket Comes to Arizona at Mangat Stadium


Mangat Group plans to build a 20,000-seat stadium in Buckeye, Arizona.

Tony Mangat, founder of the Mangat Group, shared the reasoning and need for this development stating, "There are limited places for cricket players and enthusiasts to play, as games have been played on baseball and soccer field in recent years. Our goal is to create a dedicated place for all cricket enthusiasts to enjoy the sport with accurate accommodations and proper field dimensions."
