A cricket stadium with a seating capacity of 1.1 lakh is in the works in Ahmedabad. Once completed, the stadium, designed by world renowned architect firm M/s. Populous, would be the biggest one in the world.

The new stadium will be spread across a 63 acre land in Motera where the existing stadium has been demolished.

"There will be a concourse to connect the entire stadium for pedestrian and vehicular movement. Moreover, the club house will be equipped with 55 rooms and an Olympic size swimming pool," said vice-president of Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA), Parimal Nathwani.

Mr. Nathwani and joint secretary of the association, Jay Shah, son of national BJP president Amit Shah, who is also the president of GCA, performed the ground-breaking ceremony on Monday.


The new stadium and other facilities will be constructed at a cost of Rs. 700 crore and the construction award has been given to L&T .

The stadium will also boast of a state-of-the-art club facility with three practice grounds and an indoor cricket academy.

"The parking area will accommodate 3,000 cars and 10,000 two-wheelers and traffic will be segregated in three directions," Mr. Nathwani said.

According to him, the stadium will have 76 corporate boxes and there will not be any column construction due to which there will not be any obstruction in match viewing from any corner of the stadium.
