After the formal inauguration, the Motera stadium will become the largest cricket stadium in the world with a seating capacity of 1.10 lakh. The new stadium was built after demolishing the old Motera stadium that could accommodate 49,000 spectators. Spread over 64 acres, the stadium was completed in two years at an estimated cost of Rs.700 crore. As per reports, it will have 76 corporate boxes, 4 dressing rooms, a club house and an Olympic-size swimming pool.
The ‘Namaste Trump’ event has been designed on the lines of ‘Howdy, Modi!’ organised in Houston last year. A huge stage is being set up at the centre of the ground that would have the speeches of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the US President. Around the stage would be VVIP seating for the Trump delegation, top diplomats, Indian Ministers, as also the Gujarat Cabinet.
