generally slopes to the east.
Lateral slopes are towards the
River Gomti, which flows from
north-west to south-east through
the heart of the city, dividing it into
the Trans-Gomti and Cis-Gomti
regions. The position of the City as
the only large urban centre amidst
a number of small towns in the
surrounding districts makes it an
attractive destination for job seekers and people in need of education and health facilities. Lucknow is known for
its cultural heritage. Some of the well-known historical buildings, which occupy a pride of place, include the

Development Act 1973. LDA has progressed from small beginnings to embrace an overreaching authority in the
development scenario of Lucknow. In consonance with the aspirations of modern India, LDA aims at coordinated
and planned development of a historical city: to enable Lucknow to achieve pride of place as the worthy capital of
the largest State of the country which has played a very important role in the Freedom Struggle, to extend urban
infrastructure to absorb the pressures of a rapidly changing society, and to provide an environment which would
enable the utmost satisfaction level of all sections of its inhabitants.

To fulfil its role, the Authority seeks to coordinate in accordance with a comprehensive Master Plan along with

1 Sports Infrastructure in India
1.1 Introduction
Considering the key role of sports in national life and for inculcating national
pride in the younger generation, the objective of broad basing, that is,
universalisation or mass participation in Sports assumes special significance. It
is imperative to ensure that the educational institutions, Schools and Colleges
in both rural and urban areas; the Panchayati Raj Institutions, Local Bodies,
the government machinery, the Sports Associations and Industrial
Undertakings, as also the various Youth and Sports Clubs.
Efforts will be made to promote and encourage women’s participation
in sports. The Union and State Governments, as well as the Sports
Federations/Associations will endeavour to promote a “sports culture” for the
speedier development of Sports in the country.
As a nation we are proud of our ancient civilization. Our religious culture has
produced great scholars and seekers of salvation, enlistment the world over
look to India for advice in religious matters; matters related to the science,
technology and commerce. But sadly, we have never had what could be called
a sports culture. Not even in the Mahabharata days did we have a sports
culture. Archery, boxing and wrestling were used as war weapons. But no
contests were held even in these disciplines.
With the advent of modern sports and the Olympic movement, Indians did put
in serious effort in some sports. Dhyan Chand led the hockey crusade and
India ruled the roost for three decades winning seven gold medals. Milkha
Singh broke the world record in 400m at Rome in 1960 (but unfortunately
three others did the same, ahead of him). P.T. Usha showed the world that
Indian women are capable of competing with the best. Prakash Padukone beat
the world single-handedly winning the All-England and the world title in
badminton. But all these are stray cases of excellence and none of them are
products of sports culture. They are all self-made greats. India can at the most
claim to have a cricket culture, it has become just like religion. But the
prevailing Cricket Culture is not Sports Culture.

With a potential talent pool of 1.1billion people, India is realizing the
importance of competition in each sport and training athletes.
At present there are more than 54 Sports facilities (indoor, cricket, football,
hockey and multipurpose stadiums) in India which are capable of having a
large scale event in respective sports.

1.2 Types of Sports infra-facilities
There are various types of sports infrastructural facilities which are as
following:-
1.2.1 International Multipurpose Stadiums:
These stadiums are used for multiple events like
football, hockey, athletics etc. Size wise, these
facilities are the biggest ones as same is used
for multiple events simultaneously.
As India is hosting Common wealth games in
year 2010, a lot of new facilities are under
construction near by Delhi.
1.2.2 Cricket Stadiums:
These stadiums are meant for cricket in focus,
however can also be utilised for other cultural
and entertainment events of fairly large size.
Cricket being the most popular sport in India,
these sports facilities are the major part of
overall sports facilities.
1.2.3 Indoor Stadiums:
Certain sports activities like table tennis,
badminton, wrestling, weight lifting, squash,
volleyball, basketball etc. are played under roof
and thus indoor stadium is required.
Special floor is required for different sports
activities and thus indoor stadium is
1.2.4 Aquatic centre
Aquatic centres are used for water sports like
swimming, diving, water polo etc. It may be
completely indoor or semi-open
1.2.5 Other smaller facilities :
This red to be the entry point for international travellers and would be used for
dispersal of international traffic to the hinterland.
District Stadiums:

The government is keen to encourage the development sports in smaller towns
and cities. Many towns and cities have a sports area either an open stadium or
a playground with permanent seating facility available.
Indoor sports Complexes:
Many cities across the country have indoor sports complex with capacity of 100
or 150 people. These facilities cater to the regional population for various
indoor sports events.
1.3 PPP in Sports Infrastructure: Case Studies
Sports have always been treated as a responsibility of State (Government).
Private sector is involved in providing ancillary services like marketing,
broadcasting and branding and infrastructure maintenance and operations.
Public Private Partnership would be a new approach to develop world class
infrastructure in sports and only a few examples are available to study. Some
of the latest developments in sports infrastructure through PPP which are
worth considering are as following:-
1.3.1 Singapore Sports Hub

The Sports Hub will be Singapore's premier land and sea sports, entertainment
and lifestyle hub with integrated programming. A unique cluster development
of integrated world-class sports facilities within the city, it will play a critical
role in accelerating the development of sports industry, excellence and
participation and take sports to the next level in Singapore.
Located on a 35ha site in Kallang, the Sports Hub will include the following
facilities:
• A new 55,000-capacity National Stadium with a retractable roof;
• A 6,000-capacity indoor Aquatic Centre that meets world tournament
standards;
• A 3,000-capacity multi-purpose arena which will be scalable and flexible
in layout;
• 41,000 sq m of commercial space
• A Water Sports Centre
• The existing 12,000-capacity Singapore Indoor Stadium; and
• Supporting leisure and commercial developments
Pre Feasibility Report – International Cricket Stadium cum Sports Complex

With its world-class facilities, the Sports Hub will be the Centre for Singapore's
elite athletes and high performance management as well as an ideal location
for sports and entertainment events, sports administration, and sports and
recreation businesses.
It will help to create a critical mass of international, regional and local sports
federations and associations, sports medicine and sports science service
providers, sports related training and education service providers, sports
companies' sales and marketing headquarters, and retail outlets.

Located within the city, the Sports
Hub is well connected to the Mass
Rapid Transit network, major
expressways and is only 15 minutes
from the Singapore Changi
International airport.

The Sports Hub is also located next to
the Marina Bay area and is poised to
ride on the wave of exciting
developments at Marina Bay like the
Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort,
Marina Barrage, Singapore Flyer and
the floating platform at Marina Bay.

The Hub is the first and largest sports facilities infrastructure Public-Private-
Partnership (PPP) projects in the world. It is also Singapore's largest and
flagship PPP project of this nature.
The Singapore Government is fully committed to this project and is looking
forward to working with private sector partners to capitalise on its full
potential.
1.3.2 Satgadhi Sports Village

Sports City at Satgadhi Village in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh on PPP Basis is a
project costing Rs. 500 crores. It would be one of the largest integrated sports
facility

2 Institutional Framework
2.1 Hierarchy
Hierarchy of Sports Organizations in India

Source : Websites of SAI and Ministry of youth affairs and sports,
(Indicative Structure)
Ministry of youth affairs and Sports is the top most decision making agency to
promote sports in the country followed by Sports authority of India. Indian
Olympic association comes after SAI which takes care for sports operations
regarding Olympics. However National federations and association registered
with SAI, are also autonomous in there operations and arrange competition of
international level (like BCCI in case of cricket).State government also
promote sports in the respective states through infrastructure providing and
various schemes. Associations, clubs and federations of different sports
coordinate with registered national association and state government.
Pre Feasibility Report – International Cricket Stadium cum Sports Complex

2.2 Ministry of Youth affairs and Sports
The Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports was initially set up as the Department of
Sports in 1982 at the time of organisation of the IX Asian Games in New Delhi.
Its name was changed to the Department of Youth Affairs & Sports during
celebration of the International Youth Year, 1985. It became a Ministry on the
27th May, 2000. The specific subjects being dealt with by the Ministry are
contained in the Order of the Government of India (Allocation of Business)
Rules, 1961.
Sports promotion is primarily the responsibility of the various National Sports
Federations, which are autonomous. The role of the Government is to create
the infrastructure and promote capacity building for broad–basing sports as
well as for achieving excellence in various competitive events at the national
and international levels. The Ministry’s schemes are geared towards achieving
these objectives.
The National Sports Policy was initially formulated in 1984. In order to broad-
base sports and to promote excellence, Government has formulated a New
National Sports Policy, 2001. The salient features of the New National Sports
Policy are as under:
1. Broad-basing of Sports and achievement of excellence;
2. Upgradation and development of infrastructure;
3. Support to the National Sports Federations and other appropriate bodies;
4. Strengthening of scientific and coaching support to sports;
5. Incentives to sports persons;
6. Enhanced participation of women, Scheduled Tribes and rural youth;
7. Involvement of the Corporate Sector in sports promotion; and
8. Promote sports mindedness among the public at large.
2.3 Sports Authority of India
The Sports Authority of India (SAI) was established by the Government of
India in January 1984 as a registered society primarily to ensure effective
maintenance and optimum utilisation of the various sports infrastructure that
were built in Delhi during Asiad, 1982. It is now the nodal agency in the
country for broad-basing sports and for training of sportspersons to achieve
excellence in national and international sports, the Society for National
Institute of Physical Education and Sports (SNIPES) was merged with SAI with
effect from 1 May 1987.
Pre Feasibility Report – International Cricket Stadium cum Sports Complex

Subsequently Netaji Subhash National Institute of Sports (NSNIS), Patiala and
its allied centres at Bangalore, Kolkata and Gandhinagar and Lakshmibai
National Colleges of Physical Education at Thiruvananthapuram came under
Sports Authority of India (SAI). It has now six regional centres at Bangalore,
Gandhinagar, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Bhopal and Imphal. Sports infrastructure is
being created at Sonepat and the Northern Regional Centre would be shifted
from Chandigarh to Sonepat. SAI has one Centre which is at Guwahati. SAI
also operates a High Altitude Training Centre (HATC) at Shillaroo (H.P.). SAI
proposes to open more sub-centres in addition to its Regional Centres. These
are : (1) Sub-centre at Jabalpur (MP), Lucknow (UP), Nagercoil (Tamil Nadu)
and Hazaribagh (Jharkhand).
2.4 Indian Olympic Association
The Indian Olympic Association is responsible for the preparation and
participation of competitors in the Olympic Games as well as in Regional
events like Commonwealth and Asian Games. There is a separate federation at
national level in each game/sport which assists the Indian Olympic Association
and preparation of sportsmen.
A special feature of the Indian Olympic Association is that, in addition to the
national federation for each sport, there are State Olympic Associations in
various States in the country. The State bodies controlling the different sports
are affiliated to the national federations and to the State Olympic Associations.
The aim of the State Olympic Associations is to ensure the promotion of sports
in their respective States, in conjunction with the State bodies for the different
games and sports. The overall responsibility for participation in the Olympic
Games rests with the Indian Olympic Association
2.5 Sports Associations at state and local levels
Today State governments are playing a bigger role by concentrating on
providing better sports infrastructure facilities to players. More incentivization
to players has also shown good results empirically. For example State of
Andhra Pradesh has turn around the level of sports in state and coming to first
10 states in national games year after year. State of Maharashtra is hosting
Youth Commonwealth games 2008 in Pune.
Sports association at state and local level (district, city and towns) are the
bodies situated at grass-root levels, thus play the most crucial level. As these
bodies select the sportsmen at basic level.

3 Rationale of the project
The Consultant has carried out market analysis to study the requirement of an
international cricket stadium and sports complex.
3.1 Present Status of sports facilities in state
State of Uttar Pradesh is having the largest population in the country and
thus requirement of sports facilities are also large. Department of sports
works directly under State Government and works towards promoting
excellence in sports.
Uttar Pradesh holds State Games in Lucknow every year since 2005. The
five-day games featuring 14 Olympic events are held in as a run up
exercise to National Games. These games would be the selection games
to draw a strong team for the National Games. This is an excellent UP to
make its presence felt in the national and international sports arena.
Keeping in view the training and development for excellence in sports
training academies fully funded by public sector in state are as following
:-
• Christian Physical training centre, Lucknow
• Sports College, Lucknow (under SAI)
• Sports academy in Gorakhopur.
Two international level sports infrastructure facilities in Uttar Pradesh are
as following:-

A thoughtful look at medals tally gives us a strong probability of UP being in
top 5 states. As the number of gold medals won by state are equal to above
two rank holders and just two lesser than last member of top 5.
An international standard sports infrastructure facility at state capital would be
the right kind of impetus at the moment, analyzing the need of hour. A multi-
sports international standard stadium with at least 55000 would suffice the
requirement.
3.3.2 Hub for national and international level sports events
Luknow as a city is a capable candidate for hosting next national games in
2009 with existing and planned sports facilities.
Even state should look forward to bring international events to state. As big
international events affect the whole regional economy. For example Olympics
in china have been the most profitable Olympics games till now. With
increasing popularity of various Cricket and Hockey league matches (inter-
states), even commercial viability of sports infrastructure is not an issue.
3.3.3 Regional analysis
An analysis of whole northern India in terms of international sports
infrastructural facilities shows a clear demand for International standard multi
purpose stadium in state of Uttar Pradesh.
At present there is only one multi purpose stadium with 45000 capacity in
Kanpur (Green park Stadium)

All stadiums situated in Northern India with capacity more than 25000

In terms of commercial viability of sports infrastructure Cricket stadiums have
been found most profitable. A view of all cricket stadiums pan India are as
following:-

Hence an international multi purpose stadium which can also be used for
cricket will be a economically viable and socially required project.
Thus state of Uttar Pradesh being the largest in terms of population can also
deliver the largest number of excellent sports persons in times to come. And
an international standard sports infrastructural facility will also strengthen
India’s bid for 2020 Olympics.

5 Financial Feasibility
Sports Complexes are not financially viable and hence grants are provided by
the State Government, Central Government and major sports councils like
BCCI.
5.1 Revenue Assumptions
The revenue streams are from sale of tickets, food and beverage sales,
advertisements, leasing the stadium for other events and rentals for utilisation
of the facilities for training.
The revenue for the proposed stadium is as follows:
Revenue Streams Value
Revenue from sale fo tickets
No. of days matches are held 20
Average ticket price (Rs.) 400
Average attendance 35000
Total Revenue (Rs. Lakhs) 2800
Revenue accruing to stadium from the revenue from sale of
tickets (Rs. Lakhs)
700

Revenue from Advertisement and food stalls (Rs. Lakhs) 140

Revenue from the indoor sports facilities per month
Swimming Pool (Rs.) 75000
Tennis Court (Rs.) 50000
Gymnasium (Rs.) 75000
Others (Rs.) 30000

Other Events
Rental for the stadium for other events per day (Rs.) 500000
No. of days other events are held 25
Revenue from other events (Rs. Lakhs) 125

Revenue from leasing facilities for training per month (Rs.) 200000
The operating expenditure accounts for approximately 30% of the revenues of
the sports complex of which repairs and maintenance accounts for 15% of the
Pre Feasibility Report – International Cricket Stadium cum Sports Complex

revenue, replacement of equipments account for 10% of the revenue and the
rest will account for salary costs.
5.2 Financial Viability
Financial projections are prepared for a 35 year period and the Internal Rate of
Return for the 35 year projection period is only 4%. The reason for the low
viability is the occupancy rates of the sports stadium. Hence, viability gap
funding in the form of land parcel for commercial development shall be
granted to the developer. For a project Internal Rate of Return of 14%, the Net
Present Value of returns from the commercial development of land parcel
should fetch about 79 Cr.
