The Venue

Trinidad

Queen's Park Oval is generally thought of as the most picturesque of the old grounds in the West Indies. It is also the largest, accomodating 25,000 spectators in comfort. Home of the Queen's Park Cricket Club (QPCC) since 1896
Queen's Park has been described as a classic ground with breathtaking backdrops, most notably, the northern hills. No section of the crowd captures the spirit of Trinidad than the 'Concrete Stand', renamed the Learie Constantine Stand. The fans are avid followers of the game, excitable and generally enjoy their cricket, led by a character affectionately known as 'Blue Food'.
