Wankhede Stadium - Review
India is known for its cricket craziness and the Wankhede stadium is a very important landmark in this regard. The best time to visit the place is during an actual cricket match. The amazing efferent atmosphere is the real attraction of the place.
Associated with a very deep rooted tradition and in general with cricket history, the place is quite a unique place of interest. The stadium is huge, recently renovated and a very important landmark for the cricket culture in India. Be sure to visit it if you love created or are quite fascinated by it.
The stadium also came in to picture after all the IPL matches start being held here, the ones that were hosted by Mumbai are hostel here during the Indian Premier League Season. The most recent controversy about Wankhede Stadium was regarding the fight that Shah Rukh Khan has with the security guards. It became a huge issue of discussion and was in news for the longest time.

Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai Reviews
The Wankhede Stadium was built in 1974 and the first Test match played was between India and West Indies from 23 to 28 January 1975. The Stadium was built at a time when only Test Matches were played and with the advent of One Day Cricket and Twenty 20 Cricket, the demand for the stadium extended. One of the highlights of the stadium is the suspended cantilever roofs. The Teflon fabric roof is lighter in weight and heat resistant. There is no beam support for the roof to ensure that the spectators will have a better view. On the roof there are exhaust fans which suck the hot air from the stands and allow the breeze from the West to flow in. The stadium has 20 elevators for North and South stands.
The game is a process that we start to grow often. Playing in our lives is of great importance. This is equally important for us as far as studies are concerned. If we talk about old times, it is seen that at that time entertainment was the only sport. In today's world, there are countless instruments of entertainment but play without man is incomplete.
Probably the best stadium to witness a cricket match in India. I am fortunate enough to visit this stadium for IPL matches on multiple occasions and the environment was simply electrifying. I don't think any other stadium can come close to Wankhede in terms of enthusiasm, leaving aside Eden Gardens. Phenomenal ground.🏏
One of the famous stadium in the world. It is also very beautiful. It's sitting capacity is 33108 and establiched in 1974. It is above 11,000 metre with steel bar.
At the initiative of S. K. Wankhede, a politician and the secretary of the Mumbai Cricket Association, MCA built the new stadium in South Mumbai near the Churchgate station. It was built in approx. six months and opened in time for the final Test between India and the West Indies in 1975. Wankhede Stadium. TripAdvisor gives a Certificate of Excellence to accommodations, attractions and restaurants that consistently earn great reviews from travellers. Been to Mumbai Indians game during Ipl, the total atmosphere is electric. The crowd staff is very well organised and well trained in crowd management. Wankhede Stadium: The beginning 1. The stadium, named after former Mumbai Cricket Association president SK Wankhede, was built in 1974. 2. The mammoth task of conceptualising the design of the stadium rested on the shoulders of Shashi Prabhu, who at the age of 28 was fresh out of architecture college. 3. Prabhu and his team started by first building a clubhouse for the Bombay Cricket Association (BCA, now the Mumbai Cricket Association). The BCA needed one since all it had was a small room in Brabourne Stadium, the established cricketing venue for the city. Soon after, space was allotted at the maidan that had been created on reclaimed land near Churchgate station. 4. The land selected for the BCA clubhouse and an adjoining pitch wasn't suited for cricket, it was more conducive to hockey. Although hemmed in by buildings and the railway track, the plot was close enough to the sea to get some refreshing breeze.
