“I visited the Yuba Bharati Krirangan earlier today and it wouldn’t be unfair to say that the honourable CM, the Sports Minister – Aroop Biswas and their entire team have managed to completely renovate this facility and make it truly world-class. Come this October, the grandeur and passion that the city has for the beautiful game will be on exhibit globally,” Patel said in a statement.

The 85,000-capacity Salt Lake stadium will also host one round 16 game, one quarterfinal, the third place playoff and the final besides five Group F matches and one Group E game.

The World Cup kicks off on October 6.
