World’s largest cricket stadium opens in Ahmedabad
Following it’s inauguration, the New Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad is poised to become the world’s largest cricket stadium.
The stadium will accommodate over 110,000 spectators. The previous biggest stadium was Melbourne Cricket Ground.
“Being born in India, I am a huge fan of Indian cricket. For our firm to have been a part of the design team bringing innovation to an iconic venue such as Motera is a deep honor and privilege. May every fan that visits the venue experience the passion that we have had when designing this outstanding project,” adds President & CEO Dilip Choudhuri.
The new stadium has completed construction on a 63-acre site in three years of time. The stadium includes 76 corporate boxes, four team dressing rooms and facilities, state-of-the-art club facilities with three practice grounds, an indoor cricket academy, and a 55-room clubhouse which will have an Olympic-size swimming pool.
Project Manager Abhijat Shah said, “I have had the opportunity to be a part of the design team of many stadiums in the U.S., however, getting a chance to design the roof of the biggest cricket stadium in the world is like a dream come true.
“In addition to Amol Acharya, who led our design team in India, Abhishek Bhargava, and our entire team in India, I am excited to welcome fans in this great facility that L&T built,” he said.
Viral Patel, the Principal-in-charge of the stadium said, “Through Walter P Moore, I have worked on a number of sports projects. I grew up in the City of Ahmedabad before moving to the United States over 35 years ago. Designing the roof for the world-class Motera Cricket Stadium was very special for me.”
