London-based practice Hopkins Architects is working on the first phase of the new reconstruction project of M. A. Chidambaram Stadium at Chepauk in Chennai, capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

The first of four phases, which will see the complete reconstruction of the Chidambaram Stadium by mid-2011, comprises three new reinforced concrete stands. These stands are designed to accommodate 10,000 spectators and 24 hospitality boxes under translucent PTFE membrane roofs.

The stadium, popularly known as Chepauk Stadium is the home ground of the Tamil Nadu cricket team and also for IPL's Chennai Super Kings.

The steel rods that support the roof


The Vintage Pavilion


The Pavilion stand will also be demolished and built to this height post IPL


The best looking stand in the stadium IMO


The lower tier is always exposed to the sun as I mentioned earlier

The M.A Chidambaram Stadium at Chepauk is set to have a swanky new pavilion when Chennai Super Kings kick start their Indian Premier League title defence in April 2022. The renovated stadium is expected to host the opener of the 15th edition on April 2.

The Madras Cricket Club has received permission from the Greater Chennai Corporation for demolition of its clubhouse and the work will commence by early next week. The MCC on Wednesday sent out a circular to its members saying it is preparing to hand over the clubhouse for demolition and some of the facilities will not be operational from Thursday.

Old concrete roof with gigantic pillars will make way for a brand new stand as the iconic MCC will be rebuilt. Tamil Nadu Cricket Association will also renovate the Anna Pavilion block with a state-of-the-art dressing room and corporate boxes.
