“I love this ground!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

R. Premadasa Stadium is an amazing place, if you love cricket like I do, then this place is a must visit during your visit to Sri Lanka. The atmosphere in this ground is electric and you too will end up screaming, shouting and dancing along with the crowd!

“Must see for any true cricket fan.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Watched south Africa smash the sri Lankans but the atmosphere was awesome. With thousands of dancing chanting locals supporting their stars it was a fantastic experience. Don't buy the cheap seats at 100R. Go for at least 500R. Also make sure to sit on the western side. The sun blasts into the eastern stands all afternoon...

“Lush green playing area!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

We visied when,Sri Lanka had just been crowned the World T20 cricket champs after winning their finals against India at Dhaka, Bangladesh. The upkeep and maintenance of the ground is with the Srl Lankan Airforce, who are doing a commendable job. The playing area is lush green and the stadium chairs are brght yellow and grey all numbered, the scoreboard is manual, could not notice any electronic scoreboard.The commentary and press box is glass covered and air conditioned. Premadasa hosts ODIs and T20 cricket matches.A proud possession for a proud cricketing nation.

“Simple Stadium”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Looks very simple, unlike other stadiums in India or UK. From outside you can see whats happening inside, no barriers as in other stadiums.
