The series will be held in Amstelveen from May 18 to 24 and barring May 21, the schedule is tightly packed for all other days.

The series which sees all three European teams will follow the round-robin format as every team will pit against each other twice with no Final being played.

The tri-series will begin shortly after the Pakistan series wraps up. 

"We are excited to host this Tri-Series as part of our preparation for the T20 World Cup played in America and the West Indies in June. Twenty teams will be competing in this year's event which makes this World Cup a truly global event, with more than a billion TV viewers worldwide. The Netherlands team will be aiming to emulate the success they had in Australia in 2022," said Roland Lefebvre, high-performance director at the KNCB (Royal Dutch Cricket Association) as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
