Pune Cricket Stadium IPL 2018 Tickets Booking Procedure and Information

The Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium is located in Gahunje, Pune (Maharastra). It is also known as Gahunje Cricket Stadium. The cricket stadium is also known as Pune Cricket Stadium. The stadium is owned by Maharashtra Cricket Association. In 2013, the Sahara India Parivar bought the naming rights of the stadium for the sum of 200 Cr Rs and the Stadium was named to Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium. But the company didn’t pay the full amount so the name of the cricket stadium was changed back to Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium. The first match which was played on the stadium was between Kings XI Punjab and Pune Warriors in April, 2012 and it was an IPL match. In December, 2012 first international T20 match was hosted on this stadium which was a clash between India and England. The only ODI which was played on this stadium was between India v Australia in Oct 13, 2013. The Pune cricket stadium has a seating capacity of 42,000.

General Guidelines

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.
