About Eden Gardens

The biggest cricket stadium in India and the second largest in the world after the Melbourne Cricket Stadium, the Eden Gardens cricket stadium in Kolkata is a pleasure ground. The Eden Gardens came into existence when Lord Auckland, then Governor General wanted to create a garden and a circus. The rectangular tank (pitch) in the center was created for riding or recreation purpose. Initially, the site was named as ‘Auckland Circus Gardens.' Earlier, the stadium had a seating capacity of One Lakh. However, after renovation in 2011, its seating capacity reduced to 66,000. The Eden Gardens in Kolkata is one of the first India cricket stadiums where floodlights were installed and Day & Night matches are played. Also, the massive electronic scoreboard here is one of its kinds in India. The Eden Cricket Stadium holds the privilege of hosting the most important international and national cricket events like World Cup Finals of 1987, World Cup Semi Finals of 1996, the Hero Cup and many other tournaments.
