Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) has announced that its ultra modern Stadium at Pune is being named ‘Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium’. ICC President Mr. Sharad Pawar has made an announcement in this regard.
Originally the stadium was proposed to be christened after the name of Sahara India Group, but owing to technical reasons whereby rules did not permit naming after any Corporate brand or Company name, MCA thought of naming the state-of-the-art stadium after the name of the visionary Chairman and Managing Worker of Sahara India Pariwar, as Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium. The proposal which after active insistence by MCA, that Mr Roy has reluctantly agreed to accept.
Maharashtra Cricket Association has embarked upon building its own stadium and work on the project started in 2007 after locating a suitable land at Gahunje; alongside the Expressway.
Sahara Stadium Pune was home ground for IPL team Pune Warriors India and home ground for Rising Pune Supergiants for 2016 and 2017 season
