Capacity is low, Distance from center of Pune is almost 30 km, Infrastructure for visitors to reach the stadium does not exist. should have ease of access and ease of evacuation when need be.

Hopkins Architects have been selected to design a 55,000-seater stadium in Pune, India for the Maharashtra Cricket Association 

Hopkins Architects have been selected to design a 55,000-seater stadium in Pune, India for the Maharashtra Cricket Association. It is intended that the MCA Pune International Cricket Centre (MPIC) will be able to host matches for the ICC Cricket World Cup to be held in India and Sri Lanka in 2011. The practice already has landmark work at London’s Lord’s and Hampshire County Cricket grounds in its portfolio and has recently strengthened its sports offering with the National Tennis Centre at Roehampton (completed February 2007) and its recent Olympic Velodrome win. The MPIC project will include: A main 15 wicket match ground with adjacent practice ground for nets and smaller matches; spectator seating for 55,000 grouped into 4 stands including a Members’ Pavilion and a Media Stand; additional facilities for 5,000 members including squash, badminton, swimming, spa, restaurants and bars; 80 corporate hospitality boxes; a “state of the art” Indoor Cricket Academy with residential accommodation for youth training schemes; parking for almost 4,000 cars and 10,000 two-wheelers. The site is conveniently located close to the Pune-Mumbai Expressway, just outside the city of Pune, with dramatic 360-degree views of mountain ranges. Hopkins Architects will create an amphitheatre style ground to offer spectators maximum visibility both of the game and of the local scenery. Taking into account the local climate, the practice will use innovative solutions for the roofs to the stands both to maximize shading and provide a memorable and identifiable signature for the complex.
