The Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) has announced its plan to construct a cricket stadium in Belgaum say The Hindu. KSCA treasurer Tallam Venkatesh, one of the chief guests at a function organised by the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) to felicitate sports achievers for 2011–12 here on Wednesday, said they had plans to build a new stadium; this would be in addition to the one being constructed by the State government. He said that work on the cricket stadium in Hubli was nearly finished and it would be inaugurated by the Chief Minister in November.
In 2008-09 the KSCA had commenced work at Auto Nagar to build an international standard but the work is going at a snails pace and nothing much has changed, except for the ground being leveled.
We also found this link on the internet http://www.thedesignfirm.in/public_kscabelgum.html The page shows images of the KSCA Belgaum Stadium.
However we are not in a position to tell whether these images are of the new stadium or the one at Auto Nagar. We did try to mail KSCA but all the mails bounced back.
If the story is said to be true it would be boon for the sports persons from Belgaum.

If the Hubli stadium is almost near completion then why the work was stopped for Belgaum stadium from so long.
Let them first fix all the roads, clean the roads, advocate good traffic signs and system in Belgaum than using Belgaum to get money for elections through New Cricket Stadium..
waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!
better to waste on public stadium rather than private mansions of ministers…!
Really great news
Stadium- Very much needed within span of 2 years… it will boost overall infrastructure of Belgaum.. For sure it will cause more impacts from that of Suvarna Soudha…! the question is like hen first or egg..? Once we build the stadium remaining things like roads, sanitary, airport developments will follow.. But it will not come of it’s own.. For Indian society Bamboo is needed all time to get the things done…!
Yes Belgaum desperately needs a New (2nd) Cricket Stadium.
Belgaum has already state-of-Art Athletics-track-n-field ground, a nice football & Hockey stadium, Quality Boxing & Wrestling Rings, highly equipped Table-Tennis & Lawn Tennis Stadium, a dedicated sporting fitness-cum-training institutions. The only & most neglected sport is Cricket.
I am desperately waiting for more such CRICKET Stadium to come-up in Belgaum!!!!
