BCCI To Grant Rs 50 Cr To Each WC Stadium

New floodlights and corporate boxes in Mumbai, new pitches in Lucknow, renovated dressing rooms in Kolkata, a new outfield with imported grass in Dharamshala, a brand new, temporary roof in Pune, and improved toilets and ticketing systems in Delhi. These are some of the upgrade plans for the venues that will host ICC ODI World Cup matches in October-November.

Ahmedabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Dharamsala, Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Lucknow and Kolkata are the official venues for the upcoming World Cup. Meanwhile, Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram will host the practice games.

As per a report in Indian Express, each ODI World Cup 2023 stadium will be given Rs 50 crore to upgrade their respective infrastructure. Over Rs 500 crore has been allocated by the Indian Cricket Board among the ten World Cup venues.

We redid the entire surface of the stadium and we also did a makeover of the VVIP and hospitality boxes. We hired best expert for relaying process. We wanted to make sure we had good drainage facilities and got grass from abroad.


We replaced some seats and painted the stands. There was a problem of leakage, we fixed that too. HPCA member Arun Dhumal told The Indian Express, “We wanted to ensure that play resumes as soon as possible after the rains.

Infrastructure can be spent the most

Mumbai Cricket Association president Amol Kale said, the process of upgrading the infrastructure has already started, which includes a new outfield, new LED lighting upgrades, corporate box renovation and new toilets.

We'll see if we can have some stands that can be covered, as three-quarters of the stadium is unroofed. We want to provide basic amenities like clean toilets, good roads and adequate parking space.

If any seats are in bad condition, we will replace them. We will see whether the metal fencing is fine or not, whether the ticket readers are working or not. Maharashtra Cricket Association President Rohit Pawar told about renovation of Pune stadium, our drainage system is fine, floodlights are also fine.

The floodlights in the stadium are of good quality, so we don't need to replace them. However, seats are being replaced and toilets are being renovated. The software of the turnstiles will also be upgraded to make the entry process smoother for fans, said Delhi and District Cricket Association joint secretary Rajan Manchanda
