What they say

Natarajan Gulzar, VMC Commissioner:

“IGMC Stadium is, indeed, a cricket stadium. This is clearly mentioned in several resolutions passed by the VMC general body. But we’re not against giving the stadium for hosting events other than cricket, provided the pitch is not disturbed. The grass in the stadium has just come up well, and we’re keen on allowing walkers into the stadium first. Even for practice sessions, we don’t mind allowing sportspersons other than cricketers as long as the pitch is not touched. With regard to other sporting facilities in the city are concerned, I feel that the three swimming pools are really the best. I can’t say anything about other facilities.”
