After the thrilling India versus Bangladesh cricket match, the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) has gone the extra mile to ensure a remarkable fan experience for the upcoming games.
The stadium witnessed an almost full house for the blockbuster contest, and the MCA has made significant improvements based on valuable feedback from the fans.
In response to the fans’ needs, the MCA introduced a commendable initiative by providing free parking facilities for cricket enthusiasts. The association accommodated parking for 15,000 two-wheelers and 7,000 four-wheelers during the India versus Bangladesh match. With the next two matches featuring England against the Netherlands on November 8 and Australia against Bangladesh on November 11, the MCA is gearing up for another exhilarating turnout, and free parking will continue to be available.
While parking spaces were sufficient during the last match, some fans encountered difficulties in finding suitable spots. To address this issue, the MCA has implemented several enhancements to streamline the parking process. These include increased signage to guide fans and additional security personnel to assist in parking, ensuring that fans can fully enjoy the benefits of free parking.
In a further display of their commitment to fans, the MCA adjusted gate opening times. Originally, gates were to open two hours before each match. However, recognizing the importance of accommodating the large crowds, the MCA collaborated with other stakeholders to open the gates one hour earlier, ensuring that no punctual fan missed any thrilling action on the field.
The MCA’s dedication to enhancing the fan experience extended to the quality of service offered at the stadium. Fans were impressed with the hospitality they received, which included access to free drinking water and excellent service from all partners operating within this picturesque stadium.
MCA President Rohit Pawar made a heartfelt appeal to cricket lovers, emphasizing the rarity of hosting a World Cup event in India. He urged fans not to miss this golden opportunity to witness the world’s best cricket players in action at the magnificent MCA Stadium in Pune.
His message encouraged families and friends to come together and savor the excitement of a World Cup match live at the stadium, a unique experience that surpasses watching the game on television.
