ICC Champions Trophy 2025 Venue

The Champions Trophy is scheduled to be hosted by Pakistan, with venues in Karachi, Lahore, and Rawalpindi. However, due to political unrest, India is unlikely to travel to Pakistan. As a solution, the ICC could introduce a hybrid model similar to the Asia Cup, where India’s matches would take place in another country.

Lahore is set to host seven matches, including the final. Karachi’s National Stadium will host the opening match and one of the semi-finals, totaling three matches. Rawalpindi will host five matches, including the other semi-final.
