    I think you are confusing those temporary walls which they are building to hide slums from Trump with the completion of this stadium. Don't worry Trump won't see any slum during his trip.

    The world's largest cricket stadium, the Motera stadium, is not going to be inaugurated by US President Donald Trump. Yes, you read it right. US President Donald Trump who is visiting Ahmedabad on February 24 will not inaugurate the Motera Stadium.

    Rechristened the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Cricket Stadium, Motera has been garnering public attention and a fan following for its wonderful construction and ambience.

    Asked why Prez Trump will not inaugurate this outstanding stadium, a senior official in Delhi overseeing the Trump visit told Ahmedabad Mirror, "We have never announced that US President Donald Trump was to inaugurate the stadium. It was just speculation and assumption that he is going to inaugurate Motera. It was never an announcement."

    Mirror confirmed this with a BCCI official who claimed he was under the impression that the stadium would be inaugurated by Trump in PM Modi's home State of Gujarat. "In fact, we are waiting for our invitation and were even planning to get the Indian Cricket Team and celebrities at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad for the spectacular inauguration," he added.

    Mirror has confirmed that a spectacular Trump-Modi event on lines of Howdy Modi will be held at the Stadium but there will be no inauguration. "That Prez Trump would inaugurate this Indian stadium was just an assumption. It has not been on the schedule," a senior bureaucrat in Delhi told Mirror.

    "No cricketers have been invited for the Motera event because it is not a cricket event," he confirmed. Sources claim Motera would have a grand inauguration but by an Indian, not a foreigner visiting the country because Motera is every Indian's pride.

    Why has the inauguration of the stadium been put off remains a question and no official was ready to discuss it. Claiming it was only a speculation, a PMO official blamed the media for taking forward the speculation of Motera inauguration by Trump as a story.

    However, the postponement of inauguration does not take away the outstanding aspects of Motera Stadium. The colossal stadium in Motera will not only put Ahmedabad on the map of cricketing landmarks world over but also has potential to bolster other sports like football, hockey, basketball, kabaddi, boxing, lawn tennis, athletic track, squash, billiards, badminton and swimming. The sprawling facility will house academies for all these sports. While its seating capacity of 1,10,000 is well-known, among the unique features are the four world-class dressing rooms.

    BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has already announced that India is set to play day and night Test cricket with Australia and England in the coming seasons. The apex board has also finalised newly reconstructed Motera stadium as the host venue for England's first pink-ball Test game with India. Set to become the world's largest cricket stadium when completed, Motera Stadium is being spruced up and final touches being given for the Trump visit.

    A PMO source said PM Modi and Prez Trump are likely to take a victory lap of the entire stadium, probably in an open vehicle. The Stadium can accommodate about 1.25 lakh (seated and standing) people but the US Secret Service has clearly defined their security concerns and hence there would not be more than 1.15 lakh people in the stadium.

    All said and done, this government has an obvious and unreal fixation with Gujarat/Ahmedabad. World's biggest stadium, world's biggest statue bla bla who even goes to Ahmedabad?

    Delhi NCR is by far the biggest urban region in the country and it has the probably the worst stadium ever made. Local mistry in a small town could have helped build a better stadium than that eye sore.

    Im dissapointed this just looks like a NCAA College Football stadium. There is nothing unique than the size. Looks bland. Don't know who that thought it would be good to install montone orange seats on the lower tier.

    Delhi by far is worst city in India. Do I even have to mention about smog and pollution, not to mention women safety. Delhi is even more scary than Middle East places like Syria.

    Mumbai is best city and if any other city deserves biggest stadium then it has to be Mumbai.

    If Delhi were the worst city in India, Bharat would indeed be a blessed land. I have no doubt men and women going home at midnight in Delhi metro pity their lives compared to rest of the urban India with no such transportation and work opportunities.

    JLN Stadium should've been a cricket stadium. It's not going to draw 60k for football or athletics.

    Maharashtra Cricket Association wanted a stadium completely of their own because of the dispute they had with Pune Municipal Corporation that owned the Nehru Stadium which used to host international matches in Pune and expected a lot of free tickets.

    If Pune stadium is funded entirely by MCA, then why were you all along bringing in Sahara money and their naming right. You really should clue yourselves in on how project finance works. I do it for a living. Also, have a look at how much money MCA receives this year alone from BCCI, I am not even bothering about gate receipts or advert monies.

    Sure, hyderabad is best as long as 70 km of metro reach is better than 400km of delhi metro. The fact that hyderabad metro is nowhere close to Rajiv Gandhi stadium also builds your case of hyd metro being better than Delhi in context of this discussion. Pretty much the same with job opportunities too, I am sure.

    Because a stadium of that scale cannot be funded from BCCI funds alone. There are 38 affiliated member associations with the BCCI and each member has multiple district cricket associations under it. If you think the state associations have no other use of that funding except saving up for building new stadiums then you don't have the slightest idea of how the cricketing ecosystem even works.

    Yeah, I don't have the slightest idea while you bring in inside dope sitting in MCA president's lap? LMAO

    So a tiny punjab cricket board can afford to build a brand new stadium with an existing facility like Mohali existing, one of the largest cricket association like MCA cannot afford rs. 30 crores for roof. Dude, take a pause and think over the nonsense you are peddling. From Andhra to Punjab to Bihar (the state isn't financing all of it), to Jharkhand, to Chhatisgarh, to ....- you get it? - all of these places are getting either second or a complete new stadium with fully covered stands - but somehow MCA is so destitute, it cannot afford 30 crores for a stand that it can pay over 5-10 year timeline. Sure genius, convincing stuff from you.

    BCCI President Sourav Ganguly reacts to world’s largest cricket stadium in Motera

    BCCI President Sourav Ganguly also reacted on the venue which is expected to be inaugurated by US President Donaldo Trump.

    The Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad is well on its way to become the largest cricket stadium in the world as it will host 110,000 spectators, more than doubling its previous capacity of 54,000.

    The pictures of the venue has already created a lot of buzz among fans and players alike.

    BCCI President Sourav Ganguly also reacted on the venue which is expected to be inaugurated by US President Donald Trump. “Lovely to see such a massive ,pretty stadium .. Ahmedabad .. have great memories in this ground as a player ,captain ..grew up at Eden with hundred thousand capacity .. (not any more).. can’t wait to see this on 24th,” he tweeted on Tuesday.

    The BCCI on Tuesday shared a bird’s eye view of the picturesque Motera Stadium, which is the world’s largest cricket stadium.

    “MoteraStadium Ahmedabad, India Seating capacity of more than 1,10,000,”

    The Sardar Patel Stadium -- or Motera, as it is simply known -- was first built in 1982 when the state government of Gujarat donated 50 acres of land for its construction. The ground began hosting international cricket a year later in 1983.

    So far, Motera has held one T20I (Pakistan’s final international on Indian soil, played back in 2012), 12 Test matches and 24 ODIs -- the last of which, between India and Sri Lanka in November 2014, was also the final game it hosted before it closed for reconstruction.

    By September 2015, the work to build the “world’s largest cricket stadium” began, sanctioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi (he has also served as the president of the Gujarat Cricket Association, which runs the venue).

    Grey and dull, no thanks. A bright color like orange works just fine. For example, take a look at wembley's seats.

    Although you definetly have bias against gujarat/ahmedabad, i must give a big LOL to even suggestion of delhi...

    One of india's most unsafe,most pulluted city to live in.while ahmedabad has a real peace to it.crime rate is really low and people are really friendly.
    On account of gujarat you have to remeber that this is the land that has given us many great names throughout history,if anything it has got lesser attention.
    I dont see why having a good stadium in ahmedabad is bad idea,given the fact that even though it had two old stadiums they were never given any attention in the first place.

    Looking forward to watching international matches in motera in coming years :-)

    You’re underestimating the power of Gujjus. Apart from Test matches, rest of the games should’ve full house or 80-85% capacity. IPL will definitely be sold out.

    Not doubting that it's 110,000 capacity, but it doesn't look that big. The MCG is huge. Unless ofcoruse they made the seating really cramped.

    Where are you getting the idea that it's about Rs. 30 crore for a roof? It's not. The original design had four stands of upper tier seating. It was to be completed in two phases and the first phase consisted of the lower tier seating and one of the four upper tier seating while the second phase consisted of the remaining three stands of upper tier seating.

    This is what the stadium looks like after Phase 1:


    This is what it was supposed to be after Phase 2, which would increase the capacity from 34,000 to 57,000:


    It's not construction of Rs. 30 crore, it's of Rs. 200 crore at the very least, a lot more than that now. If they just want to build a roof, they'd have to change the original design of the stadium.

    In my very first or second post where I quoted you, I mentioned the possibility that roofing may not be complete on account of plans to add more tiers. Scroll up and read it CAREFULLY. Remember my initial query was about lack of roofing, and not capacity. And according to you, MCA was a bhikhari association with no money to afford a roof. Now you may have some weird fetish going on to see your home association as a bhikhari organization, but you haven't put out a SINGLE fact in evidence to support that claim. If boards like Kerala, Jharkhand, Punjab, Uttaranchal, Andhra, Chhatisgarh, Bihar etc can build a fully protected stadium, then so can MCA.

    https://sportstar.thehindu.com/crick...le30131598.ece

    BCCI offers 100 crores subsidy to state association besides its share from revenue - MCA received 100 crores this year alone. And then there's the gate receipts and ad income. But no, Bhkhari MCA cannot generate 30 crore for roof or 200 crore for capacity augmentation over a 10 year period. LMAO!

    That subair system is already installed at a number of stadium such as chinnaswamy. The farce you speak of only happened in Guwahati. Not all stadiums will have the same facilities.

    My mistake.

    I meant they don't have the funds to complete the second phase of the stadium construction, which consisted of the three upper tier stands. And I don't know if they have plans to construct roofing for the exposed areas because it would move away from the original design. They've not given any indication about ever completing the second phase of construction though, which would cost hundreds of crores, and when the MCA President was asked about it, he gave a bit of a non-answer, basically affirming what has already been constructed.

    It's not about that. Karachi has seats of all colours.

    It just looks weird that there is no pattern at the bottom, yet there is at the top. They should have done the pattern all around or nowhere.


    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?

    No its you who must be living under the rock for calling Delhi the worst city in India. You are more than welcome to list all cities in India that are better than Delhi in providing transportation, healthcare, education, 24x7 water and electricity.

    Mumbai
    Ahmedabad
    Pune
    Bangalore
    Hyderabad
    Chennai
    Kolkata

    These are some top of my head that are better cities than Delhi. Delhi might have more Metro networks but that doesn’t automatically makes it better City. It needs better facilities, and quality living standards. By not having clean air, it makes worst place to live. Players of other nations were seen throwing up due to pollution. Any sane person would chose basic needs(clean air) over metro lines. Toronto have out of date(struggling massively) transportations, horrible roads, and never ending traffic congestions, but it provides clean air and other basic needs for its citizens. Now, does this makes Delhi better than Toronto?
    I’m not even bringing the rape epidemic that is haunting Delhi for ages. Delhi is giving entire India bad name cause of rapes happening there.

    Mumbai is known for Business/Bollywood/Sharemarket
    Bangalore for IT hub
    Same with Hyderabad.

    Delhi is known for Toxic air pollution & Rape Capital.

    Delhi needs better facilities? Seriously? Did you even read my post before replying? Which city in India has 24x7 water and electricity supply? Can you compare govt hospitals and schools of Delhi with any other city in India now? These are are the most important facilities in any city in the world.

    As far as pollution is concerned I don't know what are your sources but most of the smog or pollution is caused by farmers from Haryana and nearby cities during Diwali. Delhi's own pollution level has improved over the past couple of years. It was Delhi that first introduced electric battery rickshaws which are now being used in other cities as well.

    Not only Delhi but whole of India is known as the rape capital. You don't even know about UP/Bihar do you? Most of the cases don't even get reported there.

    Mumbai is also known for its slums. I would like to know how Bollywood improves the lives of people in Mumbai?

    lol, how ignorant would one be to term any number of random Indian cities to be better than Delhi in terms of living standards?

    Out of all those listed cities, would only love to live in Pune & probably Hyderabad ahead of Delhi. Would also love to live in cities like Mysore, Ujjain, Indore etc.

    Kolkata better than Delhi, matlab kuch bhi?
