Thanks for setting this thread up, Ajith. Hopefully, I'll have a bunch of updates on this project after my next visit to Trivandrum in November. Btw, that "Before-After" image pair looks kinda familiar!

Great News..... I just wished 3 things..

1. The Advertising board on the sides to be straight and solid.. so at least the players don't feel like crashing into it.
2. The high Camera on both end of the wickets to be a little higher.. in most stadiums the camera is kept so low, it seems the empires hat is touching the batsman's feet.
something like this..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2Y18orYqXE

3. Clear rectangular edges for pitches. otherwise in most stadiums, the dirt can be seen all around the pitch, you dont even know where the pitch starts and where it ends..

would love to see the pitch and stadiums sides like Melbourne.

Anybody related to the guys making this stadiums, can convey this to the developers.. these might be small issues, but it makes a lot of difference in viewing the matches. i fell in love with the Australian pitches.. when 1992 world cup happens there.. My father used to wake us up early morning get up and watch the matches with hot tea in hand..

India’s 1st DBOT Stadium to Start Construction in December

India’s first DBOT (design, build, operate and transfer) model outdoor stadium is coming up at Karyavattom in Thiruvananthapuram. It is being constructed to facilitate the 35th National Games to be held in Kerala.

The new greenfield stadium is coming up on 34 acres of land on Kerala University’s Kariavattom campus. Mumbai-based IL&FS Transportation Networks Limited won the bid for constructing the stadium at a cost of Rs 141 crore. The construction will begin in next December. The developer will design the stadium, build, operate and transfer it to the state government after completing the lease period of 15 years.

This will be the first DBOT-model stadium in the country,” said an official in the coordinating committee. “The new method of operating the stadium will help avoid the possible hue and cry over the lack of maintenance after the Games. The operator will have to ensure the stadium is maintained well even when it is used for non-sporting events. The developer should also give back 10% of the gross revenue to the state government collected from Games and other non-sporting events conducted in the stadium. It should also give back 30% of sponsorship (inside stadium) revenue to the government annually,” he said.

The delay in construction and over expenditure could be curbed by resorting to the DBOT model, he added.

The operator would construct the stadium without financial aid from the government in the initial years. The authorities will release money in installments to the developer from third year onwards. A total of Rs 400 crore will be released by the end of the leasing period.

The new stadium, which will have a seating capacity of 50,000, will come up after 24 months. The playing arena in the stadium will be constructed in line with FIFA regulations and ICC norms. It will have facilities to accommodate indoor sport facilities like basketball, volleyball, table tennis and handball. Olympic-size swimming pool with aquatic centre too will be constructed,” the official said.

^^ - Good update, Ajith. I understand that the Concession Agreement could be signed as early as this week.

The next stage is to freeze the design with respect to the utilization of various facilities. I am kind of involved with that, I can say for sure that this will be the most innovative stadium in the country in terms of mixed-use. In fact, the concept behind the design is very much in line with global best practice of multi-use of sports facilities and we may have stolen a march even on Singapore, which is still fiddling around with a similar project when last heard.

Stay tuned!

Ajay, How can they use the same ground for both cricket and football. Will the goal posts be removable ? and what about the pitch, will it be relaid before a cricket match?

Yes and perhaps, respectively. The stadium will not see use changes very frequently. The MCG is a dual-use stage.

MCG? I assume it is Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The wiki page answered the doubts of how can we have both Cricket and football matches :)
The football (soccer) configuration looks a little strange though!!

Some other questions that came to my mind regarding the ground planned in TVM.

Would it also have a athletic track around it?

The article above says that the construction will start in next December. I hope they meant this december

It is heard that the soil testing has already started.Can anybody confirm this?
Soil testing has already been completed a long while back. Perhaps they are now doing a more detailed engineering study.
