ICC Americas is an international body which oversees cricket in countries in North and South America, and the Caribbean islands. It is a subordinate body to the International Cricket Council. The organisation currently has 17 members, located in North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean, and is responsible for the development, promotion and administration of the game in the above regions.

The body is also responsible for the ICC Americas Championship, which is the premier international competition in the region, and allows teams to compete for World Cup qualification. The World Cup itself has only been held in the region on a single occasion, when the 2007 World Cup was hosted by the West Indies. The organisation is also responsible for hosting the ICC Americas Under-19 Championship, which fills a similar role in qualification for the Under-19 World Cup. A separate South American Cricket Championship exists, but is not organised by the ICC.

Currently the regional office is located in Toronto, but is scheduled to be relocated to Colorado Springs, Colorado later in 2016.[1]
