Getting to the ICC Men's T20 World Cup on the LIRR

Updated June 7, 2024 12:00 p.m.

About the venue

The ICC Men's T20 World Cup will be held at Eisenhower Park, home of the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, from June 3 to June 12, 2024.

Getting there

Take the Long Island Rail Road to Westbury Station and transfer there to special NICE bus service to and from Eisenhower Park. Buses run from 8:30 a.m. until two hours after the match.

In addition to our regular service, many Ronkonkoma Branch trains will also add stops at Westbury on match days. We will also have extra trains on standby after the match if necessary.

See LIRR schedules and fares.

Read important information about NICE bus service


To save time, buy a railroad ticket in advance on your phone using our TrainTime app. Tickets are also available at any LIRR ticket office or ticket machine. To speed up your return trip, buy a round-trip ticket in advance.

Tickets may be checked at Westbury Station in both directions, so please take your ticket with you and have it ready for inspection. If you bought your ticket on TrainTime, activate it prior to boarding your train to the match and when you return to Westbury after the match.

NICE bus fares are separate from LIRR tickets. They cost the same as MTA local bus fares, and MetroCard is accepted. NICE does not accept OMNY, so if you don't have a MetroCard, use the GoMobile app or exact change in coins. You can also buy tickets with a credit card from a NICE representative.

Event information

Only match-day ticket holders will be admitted to Eisenhower Park. If you do not have a T20 ticket for the match that day, you will be denied entrance.

All spectators will be screened by security upon entering the park. Items carried by fans will be carefully inspected and may not be permitted into the stadium if they do not meet safety guidelines.

By purchasing a ticket to enter the venue you will consent to abide by the Terms & Conditions and the ICC Conditions of Entry.
