HPCA Stadium

  • 16 Apr 2024

On April 2024, HPCA Stadium became the inaugural BCCI-accredited venue to incorporate a 'hybrid pitch' from Netherlands-based 'SISGrass' for international and IPL matches.

  • The revolutionary technology promises a more durable, consistent, and high-performing playing surface, transforming the game.
  • The technology, approved by ICC for T20 and 50-over competitions, combines polymer fibre with natural turf to ensure resilience and even bounce, easing pressure on groundstaff.
  • The 'Universal' machine used in Dharamshala will be deployed in Ahmedabad and Mumbai for future installations, following its success in the UK's cricket grounds.
