The project is a collaboration between the Gujrat Cricket association and some world-renowned companies. L&T was brought on as the principal contractor, Populous and Walter P Moore contributed their expertise in designing the stadium’s roof. First constructed in 1982, it had a seating capacity of only 35,000. Renovated first in 2006, and then in 2015, it was closed and demolished before being completely rebuilt with an estimated cost of Rs. 800 crores.

Rebuilding a stadium from a 35,000-seating capacity to a 110,000-seating capacity, surpassing the Melbourne Cricket Ground, which has a seating capacity of 100,000, was a major undertaking that came with several challenges that were surmounted thanks to meticulous planning.
