Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata Reviews
One of the best stadium's in the world... Best in Asia...whatever we say about the stadium it will be less to define it... Whoever once gets into the ground to experience a football match will never forget for the rest of their life....
A great place to enjoy the live confrontations of high spirited warriers, who prepared themselves through the days and nights of their life. The stadium is very spacious, cleanly maintained along with ample numbers of Lavatories for each categories in a fine intervals. Thanks to the Police Department and the Govt of West Bengal for the systematic arrangements they have been implementing for the smooth operation of the matches. One thing that to be noted, cloak rooms are not there for the necessary articles of audience as except Mobile phone and Money Purse hardly anything are allowed with the spectators while viewing the matches. However, drinking water is a free supply from the Govt of West Bengal. And the snacks vendors are available there to serve you many a things. Also a numbers of stalls are there for the tea coffee pizza and snacks.
Nice seating and view from overall gallery is quite good. In recent days it's condition improved a lot. You can watch a game there if you like to have some awesome football match experience. Gate 1 and 2 is at little distance from hayat. So try to take auto from chingrighata.
I have been there many times but the last time was a surreal experience for me. It was England vs Spain U17 world cup final. I was shouting for England. Got my cheek painted with India & England flags. And you know what? England were 0-2 goals down. But they were there to create history. Won the match by 5-2. Now coming about the Salt Lake stadium aka VYVK. It is the best football stadium currently India have.
West Bengal government has finally done something right. After the long renovation this place looks amazing. Although the seating capacity has been lowered it is still the best international stadium in West Bengal. Management and maintenance is also very good. Highly recommend to sports lovers.
