Nepali cricket fans, there’s good news!
In this regard, an agreement was signed between the Dhurmus Suntali Foundation and the Bharatpur Metropolitan City at an event held in Kathmandu.
The Gautam Buddha International Cricket Stadium will be built in an area of 20 bighas and six katthas land, currently owned by Tribhuvan University and occupied by Agriculture & Forestry University.
According to the agreement, the international cricket stadium would be constructed at an estimated cost of NPR 3 billion in Bharatpur-16.
The proposed stadium is expected to be completed in two and a half years and will be handed over to Bharatpur Metropolis.
Dhurmus Suntali Foundation Co-founder Kattel informed that funds for the project will be collected from citizens in Nepal and Non-resident Nepalis living abroad.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, Nepal Communist Party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and leaders from various political parties among others attended the cornerstone event.
The campaign for the Gautam Buddha International Cricket Stadium was started by Sitaram Kattel/Dhurmus. The stadium’s name is inspired by the nearby site Lumbini, Lord Buddha’s birthplace.
Designers have completed the 3D design of the stadium, which was initially planned in a lotus shape design. The stadium’s entrance will reflect traditional Nepali architecture.
The international cricket stadium will also have two grounds for practice on its outskirts.
