CDA to Approve Locations for International Cricket Stadium

ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) is set to finalize locations for international cricket and football stadiums in Islamabad.

According to sources, 2 sites measuring 20 acres each, located near Kuri and Motorway (M1), have been proposed for these sporting arenas.

The decision on the selection of these sites will be a pivotal point on the agenda during the CDA meeting chaired by Noor-ul-Amin Mengal.

The sources added that the CDA had previously partnered with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in 2012 to construct a high-tech cricket stadium.

However, the project encountered a setback in 2018 when the Supreme Court scrapped the location in Skharparian, as it fell within the confines of a national park area.

Last year, former Minister Sheikh Rashid stated, “I have asked CDA Chairman to initiate the process to construct a stadium and hotel in the capital.”

Moreover, the PCB had also requested the CDA to provide them with land in Islamabad for constructing a stadium that will be used for the 2025 ICC Champions Trophy.

It is worth mentioning that the then-Prime Minister and ex-cricketer Imran Khan had also instructed the former PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani to build a state-of-the-art cricket stadium in the federal capital in 2021.
