Trump to inaugurate World's largest cricket stadium

Being built at an estimated cost of $100 million, the Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad, India with a seating capacity of 100,000 spectators will be the world’s largest cricket stadium overtaking the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia.

US President Donald Trump will inaugurate the stadium when he arrives in Ahmedabad with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday (24).

This stadium will also be a ground for other sports like football, boxing, basketball, hockey, squash, badminton, billiards, swimming and lawn tennis.

The stadium will also have state-of-the-art amenities including four dressing rooms, separate team meeting rooms, three practice grounds, indoor cricket academy and an Olympic-size swimming pool. The stadium parking lot has the capacity to accommodate 4000 cars and 10000 two-wheelers.

In addition, LED lights will be put up for the first time ever in a stadium. There will be separate entry and exit points and 75 corporate boxes. The stadium is close to a metro train station to provide easy accessibility to the users of even public transport.
