  • Trump may not ‘inaugurate’ the world’s largest cricket stadium known as the Motera Stadium in Gujarat, according to the Ahmedabad Mirror.
  • The stadium became a hot topic after the news of its inaugural event broke out.
  • However, a senior official in Delhi who is overlooking the preparation told the media that they never announced any inauguration and might remain just a visit.

Lights, flowers on the way, paintings on the wall — the world’s largest cricket stadium is dressing up for US President Donald Trump’s India visit on February 24 and 25. However, It may remain just a visit. Trump may not ‘inaugurate’ the world’s largest cricket stadium known as the Motera Stadium in Gujarat, according to the Ahmedabad Mirror.

The stadium became a hot topic after news of the inaugural event broke out. However, a senior official in Delhi who is overlooking the preparation told the media that they never announced any inauguration.

“We have never announced that US President Donald Trump was to inaugurate the stadium. It was just speculation and assumption that he is going to inaugurate Motera. It was never an announcement,” an official, who was not named, told Mirror.

However, expectations have created confusion for the many people associated with the stadium. A BCCI official said that he hoped for an inauguration ceremony during Trump’s visit.

“In fact, we are waiting for our invitation and were even planning to get the Indian Cricket Team and celebrities at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad for the spectacular inauguration. No cricket players have been invited for the Motera event because it is not a cricket event,” the officer told Mirror.

In fact, many politicians and others even in Gujarat have been waiting for an invite and only Gujarat CM is known to have one as of now. In the meanwhile, Trump is waiting for 7 million people to receive him at the event.

Even when there is no official inauguration officials are aggressively sprucing up the Motera Stadium for Trump’s visit.


The BCCI on Tuesday shared a bird’s eye view of the Motera Stadium, where US President along with first lady Melania Trump are expected to attend ‘Namaste Trump’.

Here’ a look at the latest pictures of the stadium:
