Hambantota | Suriyawewa Cricket Stadium | U/C

The stadium, located about 8 kilometers from the commercial city of Hambantota in Meegahajandura off Sooriyawewa is designed to hold day/night matches. It will be one of the venues slated to hold matches of the upcoming Cricket World Cup 2011 tournament.

The project at an estimated cost of 700 million rupees is a creation of the Tharunyata Hetak youth movement headed by President's son Namal Rajapaksa. It is totally funded by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC). The Construction of the first phase began on May 17,2009.

The International Cricket Council recently visited the venues in Sri Lanka that are slated to hold the matches of the World Cup 2011 tournament and expressed their satisfaction on the progress. Sri Lanka, along with India and Bangladesh will be hosting the international event.

The Sri Lanka Army personnel will be working on the first phase of the project which includes laying of the turf pitches and grass. The China Harbour Engineering Company is expected to take over from the Army after the first phase is completed to add the spectator stands.

The project is set to be completed by October 2010 in preparation for the World Cup in June 2011.

Please follow up the construction updates here.

I am aare of the sports infrastructure thread. But I think its better to update things here, for all major construction projects as it is easier to navigate and keep this section of the forum active. Also it would be a better way of showcasing the major projects to foreign forumers who wouldbe niterested in seeing developments in Sri Lanka. So lets update the projects here

Also I think it would be a beter idea to start a new thread for Khettarama stadium.

I have seen lotz of displeasure over the Hambantota Stadium, now one thing I would like to remind, SLC only spend $10.00 million, compared to 1st world about $75-100 million, due to labor cost, stage 1 totally free coz it was completed by Army and land was totally free. Construction also undertaken by Chinese firm part of port and airport project. So guys we are not gonna be able to have another MCG built in Hambantota, but we will have something can be proud of!!!

LOl, thats not wat ticked me off dude, its what they said earlier, they said it will be one of the best stadiums in Subcontinents. They showed a plane which looked awesome, and then they changed the plane, and took off half the stadium away from the plan.

Sri Lanka to hire cruise liner for World Cup fans

(AFP) – 45 minutes ago

COLOMBO — Sri Lanka plans to hire a cruise liner to accommodate cricket World Cup fans and spectators at the newly built stadium in the island's south, an official said on Tuesday.

The six-million dollar stadium in Hambantota, President Mahinda Rajapakse's hometown, lacks hotels to accommodate thousands of fans expected to watch the games in February-April next year.

"Star-classed hotel facilities are enough for only two teams and the cruise ship can accommodate up to 1,000 people," Sri Lankan World Cup official Suraj Dandeniya told AFP.

International Cricket Council rules require each venue to have five-star facilities to house between 500 and 1,000 players, officials, media and fans.

"The ship will be used mainly for spectators, officials and the media contigent that will be following the two games allotted to the venue," said Dandeniya.

Sri Lanka, India and Bangladesh are co-hosting the 14-nation showpiece held every four years. Pakistan, the fourth Test-playing nation in South Asia, were removed as co-hosts due to security concerns in the volatile country.

Known as the Suriyawewa Stadium, the Hambantota venue will host its maiden international game when Sri Lanka play Canada in the World Cup on February 20.

The other match at the venue is between Pakistan and Kenya on February 23.

The 43-day tournament will be played across 13 venues in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and ends with the final on April 2 at Mumbai's Wankhede stadium.

The original plan you have seen was done by an Indian firm-CPG Architects, the Inidan branch of the Singaporean firm by the same name. That was truley awesome. Somewhere along the line due to budget constraints ( ill planned as usual by SL) the local consultants to the project-Surath Wickremasinghe Associates changed the design and screwed it up, just the way they did with the Dambulla Stadium.

After the WC, they were suppose to build two stands left, and right to the grand stand. SLC is already under Rs 4 Billion debt. And they still havent paid any ouf our player since WC. There is no now way that they will build the additional stands.
