In a bold move towards sporting excellence, the Gujarat government has revealed ambitious plans for potentially hosting the 2036 Summer Olympics in India.
Biggest Areas with spectacular Capacities:
The Gujarat government has formed a new company that will oversee a budget of INR 6,000 crore to build six sports complexes to host the 2036 Summer Olympics if India wins the bid for the event. The new company named, 'Gujarat Olympic Planning and Infrastructure Corporation Limited', was formed three months back and will be preparing Gujarat for the multi-discipline sporting extravaganza.The firm will primarily look after the development of an area measuring nearly 350 acres around the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave in Ahmedabad's Motera area. Notably, the under-construction sports enclave houses the Narendra Modi Stadium, the world's biggest cricket arena in terms of spectator capacity.
More Details Regarding the Budget:
A 350-acre master plan has been created for the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave in Motera and its environs in order to fulfill the nation's aspiration of hosting the Olympics. The 350 acres of land to be used for the construction of six sports complexes is what the design company that was previously chosen through an open bid presented. The project will cost an estimated Rs 6000 crore in total and that the corporation has just released tenders to choose companies capable of designing these sports complexes.
The Gujarat Urban Development Department's principal secretary chairs the board of top officials, which also includes the city of Ahmedabad's commissioner, the CEO of the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority, and the director general of the state's sports authority, according to an official. India officially announced in October of last year that it will submit a bid for both the 2030 Youth Olympics and the 2036 Summer Olympics. By hosting the games, Ahmedabad would have the chance to promote its culture and legacy globally and establish itself as a major global sporting and tourism destination.
India is thrilled to have bid to host the Olympics. India is committed to organizing the 2036 Olympics to the fullest extent possible. A dream shared by 140 crore Indians. This is something we would want to realize with the IOC's help. Sports are not just the finest means to win medals; they are also the best way to win hearts. It fosters harmony in addition to producing champions.
