UP to get one more cricket stadium by 2011

Kanpur, Nov 27 (PTI) The Green Park stadium here will not remain the sole venue in Uttar Pradesh to hold international cricket matches as the upcoming stadium in Great Noida will also get to organise one-dayers and Twenty20s in future.

Moreover, the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) is also looking for land to build its own cricket stadium.

UPCA Secretary Rajiv Shukla today said the Jaypee Group, who are developing a Sports city in Greater Noida, are building a cricket stadium there and UPCA has already inked a fifty-year agreement with them to hold matches.

He added that stadium will be ready by 2011 and it will hold Twenty20 and one-day international matches.

Initially the spectator capacity at the stadium will be 40,000 but it will be increased to one lakh gradually.
