The Arena by TransStadia - India's first convertible stadium

Just 8 kilometers down the road, right next to the Ahmedabad Zoo near Kankaria Lake is another newly developed multi-purpose-stadium, currently just known as The Arena.

The project is worth Rs. 550 crore and has been built on a unique public-private partnership (PPP) model between the Government of Gujarat and TransStadia.

The project is built on a defunct Abad Dairy property measuring about 9 acres in Maninagar

It is Asia's biggest and India's first convertible stadium. It's an outdoor stadium that converts into indoor arena within 6 minutes at a touch of a button.

The facility houses High-end stores on the outside fa├žade, a gym, club, swimming pool, creche and three restaurants on one side. A hotel and three huge banquet halls for meetings and conventions. And sporting facilities as many as 14 sports like Cricket, Football, Basketball, Tennis, Squash, Volleyball, Table Tennis, Swimming and Air pistol/Rifle shooting, etc.

The Arena has an outdoor seating capacity of 20,000 (which is built to FIFA specifications). Using technology licensed from the British firm StadiArena, a portion of the field can be partitioned into a 4,000 seat indoor arena, which was the venue for 2016 Kabaddi World Cup

THE ARENA will surely pave the way for future sports infrastructure projects in the country to be developed by private companies.
