Narendra Modi Stadium

The Narendra Modi Stadium is commonly known as the Motera Stadium (as that is where it is located), and formerly the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Stadium, and originally named Gujarat Stadium.

The stadium was first constructed in 1983, and renovated in 2006. Between 2015 and 2020 the original stadium was demolished and completely rebuilt. After a reconstruction in 2020, the capacity of the stadium was doubled. It is not only the largest stadium in India, it is the largest stadium in the world. The current seating current capacity is 132,000 people, though the biggest attendance so far was 101,566 for the 2022 IPL Final.

The stadium is named after Narendra Modi, the current Indian prime minister, a position he has held since 2014, and most recently famously hosted Namaste Trump, the US President Donald Trump visit in 2020.

The stadium has mainly been used to host cricket matches, including games in the 1987, 1996, and 2011 Cricket World Cups.
