Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad got a mission to top the 100,000 seating aptitude of the MCG, Melbourne Cricket Ground. Being the world’s largest cricket stadium, it holds a public seating of over 110,000.
The surprise move is, the Motera Stadium is now renamed as Narendra Modi Stadium. The cricket ground was a dream of India’s Prime Minister. Hence, he opted to build the world’s largest cricket ground.
Respecting his dream and investment towards it, President Ramnath Kovind announced the new name during a ceremony of Ind vs Eng 3rd Test.
The stadium was the project of Modi, who took over the post of chief minister in Gujrat State before taking over the head of government in 2014. It got launched in Ahmedabad, the center of Gujrat.

“This stadium was the dream of the prime minister and he had during his stint as chief minister here floated the idea of building the world’s largest stadium,” Home Minister Amit Shah said at the event.
The Motera Stadium began as the Sardar Vallbhal Patel Stadium to host a rally when the United States of America president, Mr. Donald Trump, joined Modi in February 2020.
The Narendra Modi stadium is just one part of the huge Patel Sports Enclave that will house amenities for 33 Olympics.
Notably, the existing stadium has been engraved. It earlier endured the capacity of 45,000 masses since 1982. The complete stadium coming after demolition will host its inaugural cricket match on Wednesday between England and India.
