Hopkins reveals Indian cricket stadium

Hopkins Architects has unveiled its design for a 55,000-seat cricket stadium in Pune, India, for the Maharashtra Cricket Association.

As well as the main stadium and 15-wicket match ground, the MCA Pune International Cricket Centre will include facilities for 5,000 members including squash courts, swimming pools, a spa, restaurants and bars.

The scheme also includes a ‘state-of-the-art’ indoor cricket academy, with residential accommodation for youth training schemes and parking for 4,000 cars and 10,000 two-wheelers.

The scheme starts on site this year with completion scheduled for 2010 – in time for the ground to host the 2011 Cricket World Cup, which is being held in India and Sri Lanka.
