Pakistan’s Prime Minister and PCB’s patron-in-chief, Imran Khan has given the approval to construct a new hi-tech stadium in Islamabad. The decision was taken during PM Imran’s meeting with PCB chairman Ramiz Raja in Lahore on Friday.
Earlier, Ramiz revealed that PCB had requested the relevant authorities to provide them land in Islamabad to construct a state-of-the-start stadium that will be used for the 2025 ICC Champions Trophy. Ramiz said that constructing an international standard stadium in the capital city is one of his main focuses as Pakistan was awarded the hosting rights for the mega event. This will be the first ICC major tournament to be held in Pakistan since the 1996 ICC Cricket World Cup.
Ramiz said that the state-of-the-art stadium will be equipped with world-class facilities for the teams traveling to the country and will also enhance the experience of the fans as they travel to the stadium to watch their favorite superstars in action.
