Dream Fapla releases design for proposed international stadium
Dream Fapla, the campaign for the construction of the Fapla International Cricket Stadium in Dhangadi of west Nepal, released the design of the proposed stadium.
“The master plan of Fapla International Cricket Stadium is out,” Subash Shahi, the convener of Dream Fapla, said. “We are in the turning point of history being made, the revolution in cricket in Nepal.”
Dream Fapla is crowdsourcing funds for the construction of the stadium with a dream to identify Dhangadi as the city of cricket. “Dream Fapla is the project of people which should run in the Public- Private Partnership model,” wrote Shahi on his Facebook. “Today, there lies some hurdle ahead. We will always keep fighting until our goal of international stadium is realized.”
Shahi also appealed all to unite for the stadium. “We request every Nepalese to unite for this noble cause which will determine the future of our country, our kids, our economy and most importantly, if we make our dream come true, it will be proved that development is possible through the participation of people- locals, businesses, corporate houses, Nepalese living abroad and yes, there is the role of government.”
The design consists of a play ground, Gym, locker for players, swimming pool, training house, parapet in three sides of the grounds, VIP Stand, media centre, and accommodation area for the players among other facilities. The stadium will have a capacity of 40,000 spectators.
The project has not been without hurdles as the government agencies with the responsibility of developing the sports in the region had in past said the stadium couldn’t be built as it’s planned, owing to the ownership issue.
National team skipper Paras Khadka shared the designs posted by Shahi on Facebook and said that he was confident of the project on time.
