Junagadh City News – Cricket Ground at Swami Vivekanand School

A new cricket ground will come up in the heart of Junagadh City.

The Junagadh Municipal Corporation (JMC) has cleared the tender process for the same and work is scheduled to start in the first week of June. The Swami Vivekanand ground has been chosen as the site for the said project.

Bharat Karena, the chairman of the JMC Standing Committee said: “Rs 50 lakh tender has been sanctioned by the JMC standing committee meeting organized on Monday.

In the first phase, the cricket ground and the indoor stadium will be constructed at the site.”

He said the construction of a pavilion and other infrastructure facilities are also on the cards and the entire project will be developed gradually.

JMC has received a grant of Rs 50 lakh in the first phase for the said project. As soon as further grant is received, development work will be carried out accordingly, Karena said.

He said the JMC aims to bring out the sporting skills of the youth by providing them adequate facilities, but they have concentrated on cricket as the game is popular in the country and youths take a keen interest in it.

“The new ground will provide the city youth with adequate facilities for various games, especially cricket. The proposed indoor stadium will provide enough facilities and opportunities for other indoor games, as well,” he added.

Karena further said that after the project is realized, Junagadh will likely play host to various state and national level sports events.
