Pune Cricket Stadium Seating Arrangement
The Pune cricket stadium seating arrangement is shown below. It shows various roads and stands which makes it easier to choose which stand to book and which road to take while visiting the stadium. Parking zones, pavilions, stands, service lane also depicted on the map clearly.
It is located in Mumbai Pune Expressway just in the outskirts of the city. You can clearly see the old and new highway on the layout.
To have a good overall experience and to be ready for the match, there are few things to keep in mind. On receiving your entry passes, check the gate number which is printed on them. You have to head towards the gate number to enter the Maharashtra Cricket Association stadium and reach to your stands. There are few only a few numbers of items which are permitted inside the stadium. It is advised not to bring any item other than the wallet and mobile phones, as the list of restricted items is rather long. I may name few of the restricted items: water bottles, data cable, power bank, charger, headphones, coins, metal objects, binoculars, plastic bags, eatables or drinkable, etc. Although, some of the baby food items and baby diapers are allowed. If something gets detained at the entry gates, the probability that you would get it back is really low. The entry gates of the stadium generally open 3 hours prior to the start of the match. So, it is good to enter the stadium before time.

Pune Cricket Stadium Review
The stadium is newly constructed and it has a huge seating area. While designing the seating area, the priority was to provide a clear view of the ground to the various stands. The architects(Hopkins Architects) succeed in doing so. The rain is a big problem in Pune and it has caused many matches to be abandoned, so to overcome this problem sand-based outfields are developed. These outfield doesn’t allow water to stay on the filed and as a result, stadium gets ready to play again in few minutes after the downpour. The stadium is well equipped with all the latest and basic facilities. The ambiance created here is also magnificent on match days when the ground is full with fans. The experience is rather special. It is advised to visit the cricket stadium by public transport as it faces a lot of rush on match days and bringing your own vehicle can become a headache later on.
