I agree that Toronto would be a great location, large South Asian/Caribbean presence. Also has a large population of Indo-Guyanese and Indo-Trinidadians...

Toronto would have easily been the #2 team to launch with after New York but it is clear that they want this league to be U.S. centric only.

So to answer your question the next set of expansions in the United States will be Los Angeles, followed by the likes of Boston, Houston, Miami, Seattle, so on and so forth.
A sports ventures firm will work with real estate giant JLL to plan and build eight cricket stadiums across the country, including Dallas.

I've been meaning to post this for a while but it has constantly slipped my mind. The U.S. is quite possibly getting a professional cricket league that will start off with 8 launch sites that will have their own teams, venues, stadiums, and other accommodations.

The 8 identified spots include:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikmat.../#1b5ac6544517

With regards to where in those states, a separate report outlines that in California it will be the San Francisco Bay Area, in Texas it will be the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, in Florida it will be the Greater Orlando area, in New Jersey it will be in Northern New Jersey, in Illinois it will be in Chicagoland, in Georgia it will be in Greater Atlanta, and I assume the rest are self-explanatory.

These are renderings for the type of stadiums and surrounding environs that they plan to build:

All major components are labeled. Feel free to share your thoughts and/or concerns.
This is fun - At family parties we used to play cricket in Northern NJ so makes total sense that it's one of those locations

Franklin park has practice matches going on regularly nearby also.
Those countries have high Indian population or influence

There are recreational cricket leagues that pay in my area some 30 miles outside Boston. They seem to mostly cater to the Indian community of hi-tech workers that have moved here for their careers.

The largest South Asian community in North America is in the NY metro, esp. Northern NJ, so it makes sense they're planning two regional teams, one for Northern NJ, and probably the other for Brooklyn-Queens-LI.

Also, the gigantic Caribbean community in the region can't hurt.

I'm in Brooklyn, and cricket is a very popular activity in a nearby park. Big crowds on weekends. The teams appear to be mostly South Asian or West Indian.

The Main Line, just outside of Philadelphia would be a great spot for a cricket team.
