Once the ground comes up lot of matches will be played on this ground apart from this, KSCA will also come out with academy for U-16 and U-19 boys.

Already more than Rs 1 crore have been spent and it may cross more than Rs 2 crore before it is completed.

  1. Its great to know about this news. Apart from our school and college grounds we did not had any grounds in Belgaum. i remember once in early 70s we had Ranji Trophy match and we had gone to see Gundappa Vishwanath and Brijesh Patel…i dont remember which ground it was. Must be Lingraj college or some in Camp. Welcome addition to Belgavi.
