A sports ventures firm will work with real estate giant JLL to plan and build eight cricket stadiums across the country, including Dallas.
Global Sports Ventures LLC sought JLL's sports and entertainment group for its advisory services as part of an effort to bring a professional cricket league to the United States by 2020.
JLL will manage the site selection and oversee the development of eight stadiums in Texas, California, Illinois, Georgia, Florida, Washington D.C., New Jersey and New York. Those locations were chosen on the basis that the sport already has established followings there, predominantly through Asian populations.
