Pakistan will be hosting the Men’s Champions Trophy 2025 in February, confirmed the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday.

In a statement, the ICC announced a string of ICC events that will be held in the next couple of years or so. The international cricket body confirmed that the Champions Trophy will be held in Pakistan.

“In February 2025, Pakistan will host the Men’s Champions Trophy. It will be the first major global cricket tournament played in Pakistan since 1996 when it hosted the Men’s Cricket World Cup alongside India and Sri Lanka,” reads the ICC statement.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja reacted to the news, stating that it was a moment of “great pride and delight” that Pakistan will be hosting the Men’s Champions Trophy in 2025.

“It’s a matter of great pride and delight that Pakistan will be hosting ICC Champions Trophy 2025. This great news will surely excite millions of Pakistani fans, expats and world fans to see great teams and players in action and will allow the world to sample our hospitality,” tweeted the PCB Chairman.

Pakistan are the defending champions of the Champions Trophy. The Men in Green defeated India in 2017 by a mammoth 180 runs in the final of the ICC event under the leadership of skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed.
