PM Imran Approves New Cricket Stadium for Islamabad

Pakistan’s Prime Minister and PCB’s patron-in-chief, Imran Khan has given the approval to construct a new hi-tech stadium in Islamabad. The decision was taken during PM Imran’s meeting with PCB chairman Ramiz Raja in Lahore on Friday.

Earlier, Ramiz revealed that PCB had requested the relevant authorities to provide them land in Islamabad to construct a state-of-the-start stadium that will be used for the 2025 ICC Champions Trophy. Ramiz said that constructing an international standard stadium in the capital city is one of his main focuses as Pakistan was awarded the hosting rights for the mega event. This will be the first ICC major tournament to be held in Pakistan since the 1996 ICC Cricket World Cup.

Ramiz said that the state-of-the-art stadium will be equipped with world-class facilities for the teams traveling to the country and will also enhance the experience of the fans as they travel to the stadium to watch their favorite superstars in action.

According to details, PM Imran has given his go-ahead on the project and advised Ramiz on utilizing all the necessary resources to construct the stadium as quickly as possible. The construction of the new stadium is likely to start in the next couple of months with the aim to complete it before the 2025 ICC Champions Trophy.

Furthermore, the arrangements for the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) 7 were also discussed during the meeting. PSL 7 is scheduled to commence from 27 January in Karachi while the final will be played in Lahore on 27 February.

They call me the Sports Guy!

  • Please main city se kahi door banae, taake security issues bhi na hon and Traffic mai loag khwar bhi na hon

  • Our country is drowning in debt.
    Are such frivolous projects justified? We have bigger problems to deal with.
    The money that will be wasted/embezzled in this extremely unnecessary ​”project” can be utilized in more important and useful areas.
    But now that money will instead be used to make an unnecessarily expensive playground where grown men can play with their bats and balls.
    Yeah… That’s a “good use of our dwindling funds”….. 😤

  • Dear. Ali khan its an investment for future of government as well as for our country.

  • Dear Muhammad Husnain.
    Investing in infrastructure projects that improve services and facilities for the common man across the nation are more important.
    Decreasing the debt and there by the inflation is more important than political optics such as this.
    No one is saying don’t do such frivolous projects. It’s just that this is not the time.
    For example, they are starting campaigns in Lahore to fight smog by implementing fines on Trash burners. This might also be applied to other cities like Rawalpindi for example. Instead of wasting money on this stadium why not put the money towards trash collection services that reach even the smallest muhallahs to ensure that burning the trash is no longer the only “majburi wala” options for people to take.
    Like I said, invest to make necessary improvements. That is the order of the day. That is good investment for the future. Not stadiums.
