Description: Motera Stadium
Planned for the northern Ahmadabad’s Motera district, the new cricket stadium is expected to be amazing for one major reason. The projected capacity of 110,000 people will make it the world’s largest cricket venue and one of the largest sports stadia as well.
Another, though not intentional, reason for its uniqueness is the cost. According to all accessible data it’s expected to consume just 7 billion rupee, representing some $102 million upon groundbreaking.
While expected to be the sporting home of Gujarat’s cricket team, the stadium is also bound to host major events of other kind, being India’s largest and offering 76 skyboxes, as well as over 50 rooms attached to its south side.
Contrary to its predecessor, the new stadium would have three major access routes instead of one. Connected with new subway station, it will also offer 3,000 parking spaces for cars and 10,000 for cycles.
India: Record stadium being born away from spotlight
No World Cup will be held here, at least not one for football. That's partly why the stadium in Ahmedabad is being built away from global attention. But these photos shared by Parimal Nathwani show the true magnitude of what will soon be a 110,000-seater!
