The BCB has got a big piece of land in the capital to build a cricket stadium and BCB president Nazmul Hasan is hopeful of completing it in three years.
The BCB board of directors held their fifth meeting Saturday and discussed about the proposed stadium, which is supposed to be established in Purbachal, among other agendas.
“We have got a land of 37.49 acres by paying Tk10 lakhs. We thanked the Prime Minister in our board meeting for giving us the opportunity,” said Nazmul to the reporters after the meeting.
The BCB chief said the board has decided to look forward with regards to starting an international process about the matter.
“We have decided to announce an international tender asking for expression of interest about it, basically for design and consultancy. We discussed about the process of selecting. There will be people from board, and also specialists from outside the committee. We want to build the stadium in three years,” said the 57-year old.
Nazmul also informed that the BCB will bear the costs, and they want to make all sorts of facilities which are incorporated in a modern stadium.
“The BCB will bear the full cost. As we are seeking a state of the art stadium it will be beautiful to watch. It will have more capacity and it will be more expensive due to design. We want to make something iconic,” he said.
“There will be a minimum capacity of 50,000. There will be an academy, indoor facilities, swimming pool, gymnasium and other things which are required.
“We also want a five-star hotel there. We will understand how much it will cost after getting the report.”
