Hi, what are you looking for?

Delhi to get a FIFA approved international football stadium by 2019!

After a terrific response to the recently concluded FIFA U-17 World Cup, Delhi government has approved the construction of an international level multi-purpose sports complex at Kair village in Najafgarh with modern facilities for cricket, football, basketball, athletics, tennis and swimming. 

 

 

The international level facility will be spread over 18.2 acres and will be erected at an estimated cost of nearly Rs 122 crore. The facility is expected to be ready within 18 months and will be developed in two phases. A sum of 10 crore has already been sanctioned in the first phase so that work could begin immediately without waiting for the entire plan’s sanction which will have to travel through all the paperwork and processes that could have led to delay. A FIFA approved football stadium should be a refreshing surprise for the football fans around the country. 

 

 

“FIFA has already approved the completed football stadium in this upcoming complex as a certified venue for hosting international matches, during its inspection of the stadium in November.” An official said. In the first phase, international-level facilities for athletics, tennis, basketball and swimming are scheduled to be completed within six months. In the second phase, a sports academy and residential facilities will be set-up. The Delhi government also claims that after the football stadium, a cricket stadium would also be developed at the site as an alternative to the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium. 

The infrastructure in the country is bound to improve after an event like the U-17 World Cup, and this seems like a step in the right direction. Although, it will be interesting to see if we get to see an improved participation in football from the rural areas around Delhi and Haryana with this initiative.
