Looking for an iconic name to bolster the credentials of your national stadium? Antigua really struck lucky. The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium is in North Sound just 15 minutes from Antigua’s capital St John’s. Like many in the region it was built for the 2007 Cricket World Cup and hosted a number of Super 8 matches. Normally holding 10,000 it can cater for double that with extra seating. Despite its newness it already has a nickname and a slightly chequered Test history. It’s been dubbed ‘Beach 366’ – Antigua boasts 365 beaches – as its sandy outfield led to the cancellation of the England Test in 2009. An ICC enquiry led to its suspension but after a little beach cleaning it returned to host international cricket in 2011.
