World’s largest cricket stadium renamed ‘Narendra Modi Stadium’

February 24, 2021

President Ram Nath Kovind inaugurated the newly revamped Motera Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad, which has been renamed the Narendra Modi Stadium, today.

Home Minister Amit Shah and Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju, along with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah, were also present at the event.

The Narendra Modi Stadium — the largest cricket ground in the world with a capacity of 1,10,000 — will host its first international match today, when India will take on England in the Day-Night Test. The Stadium will be a part of the planned Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave in the city.

“Coupled with Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave and Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera, a sports complex will also be built in Naranpura. These three will be equipped to host any international sports event,” Shah said at the event.
