Visiting this place was extremely memorable because Farhan Akhtar was coming to lead a rocking concert over here. A large area in an awesome location. UA 2016 that was being organised at this place was superb and memorable.

Its a best hockey stadium in India. I visited this stadium for the World Cup Match between India and Pakistan which India won by 4-1 margin. We enjoyed a lot. We did not had any parking problems as we reached here well before time. But other friends faced the issue. But this problem only occurs in case of a big... More

You should visit this place once atleast to have a feel of Hockey and preferably plan during the HIL that is the hockey India league. A different experience at INR 100 per... More

Earlier known as National stadium, this was later renamed to honour the biggest hockey player the world has seen so far. This was the venue for the first Asian Games held way back in 1951 and hosted hockey and other competitions not only during Asian Games of 1982 but also for Commonwealth Games held in 2010. Today this is an... More

The finest hockey stadium in the country that always hosts major hockey tournaments and world cup events. It has good seating arrangement, food is available but depends on catering sponsors. Tickets are affordably priced in order to popularize the event and attract more spectators. Cameras are not allowed inside the stadium.
