“if you love sports”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

all started from the commonwealth games 2010, i was there, it was a great game, huge crowed, all chearing for India, amazing
Then a year later Brayen munich vs India match
Awesome, i was there to see rybery :p anyways stadium was dirty by the time, seats had dusty layers.
Then i came again for Nehru cup watch all the India's matches there, tight security. that winning moment changed the backwardness of Indian football. when everyone jumped in to ground.
Then i came here again for I-league matches of ONGS.
the place is very good but there is no civic pride, a sadly recurring feature of Indian public places. A great venue spoilt by poor external planning and maintenance and an apparent "dont care" attitude of government and staff.

“A great venue spoilt by lack of finishing”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

We attended for the Commonwealth games. The exterior was like a building site and the signage poor. However the actual stadium was great for the occasion. We returned a year or so later for an India vs Bayer Munich football friendly. It was not only in a worse state but all the seats were covered in thick dust, everyone was trying to wipe seats with bits of old tissue. Is no-one employed to clean? at all? There is no civic pride, a sadly recurring feature of Indian public places. A great venue spoilt by poor external planning and maintenance and an apparent "dont care" attitude.
