  • Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi has a capacity of 60,000, built in 1982 as a venue for the Asian Games. It is a multipurpose stadium and you can also register yourself here. This Ground is also known for its architectural design. It looks so awesome from outside. Due to its many kinds of plus points, it is one of the best stadium in India.
  • Only for sports lover, There are so many indoor playgrounds included running synthetic track. And very good maintained by authority. Public Transportation is not that much good. But one can find good environment of sport.
  • First this stadium was constructed before Asian game 1982 at the India was the host. Later stadium was redesigned in 2010 when India was hosting commonwealth games. Multi purpose stadium covering ample space for sports. Office of sports authority of India is also situated here.
  • Have participated in a couple of events which were held at this stadium. It's wonderful. Stood in the middle of the stadium, looked around and got a feeling of euphoria. Awed by the structure and make of the stadium.
  • This stadium loosing it's beauty which reached at its maximum at the time of commonwealth games. Urgent need of repair to maintain atleast status quo.
