  • Really the best stadium to watch cricket. I watched India vs Australia here and the experience was just wondering. The crowd was awesome. There are many entrance for the stadium and crown management is good. It was my first experience of watching a live cricket match. It was worth it. Most importantly we won the match too. A must visit place for cricket lovers.
  • For cricket lovers just plan for it.Redesign and construction of the Eden Gardens, an iconic and historical stadium. VMS assisted the client with a fast paced construction program to beat the World Cup hosting deadline. The spectacular curved roof unifies the facility developed in bits & pieces over decades. The stadium rebuild consisted of dismantling half of the existing stadium to be reconstructed with new facilities. The new Eden Garden is compliant for first class international cricket under the ICC rules
