The Stanford 20/20 Tournament is a cricket tournament in the Caribbean island of Antigua. It was held first in July and August 2006 in the West Indies at the Stanford Cricket Ground, St. John’s, Antigua and Barbuda and the same place the year after. It is a variety of the popular Twenty20 format first introduced in English cricket in 2003.

The format was initially devised and made possible by Allen Stanford as a part of his (private) plan to bring West Indian cricket back to life. 19 teams took part in the inaugural knock-out tournament and 20 teams took part in the second tournament (although 21 teams were originally scheduled to take part). It will now be a part of the official calendar of the WICB.
