The biggest stadium in India (for a few years, of the world) - in terms of seating capacity! It has been the scene of countless epic Kolkata derbies - East Bengal vs. Mohun Bagan, ever since it was built. Great atmosphere when the stadium fills out. Recently it hosted the final of the FIFA U-17 World Cup (2017). That tournament brought in lot of upgrades in terms of infrastructure - seats for everyone (even 10 years back, when, as college students we went for the derby matches, seating mostly was on the steps). Went to the VIP area with family members (senior citizens) and found very good amenities - clean toilets, and even a complimentary dinner.

Ther Stadium is all renovated and looked great. Problem is in getting there. No clear directions for anything - if you are from out of town, you will be lost. No directions to parking, box office location or individual gates posted anywhere. It's a huge place, so not have good directions posted is a problem, especially if you are from out of town.

Also, known as Yuva-Bharati Krirangan, this place appealed to me a lot, due to the lush-green grass, the well-maintained seating arrangement in the gallery and the vibrance during the football match.

Salt Lake Stadium, officially known as Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan (VYBK), is a multipurpose stadium in Bidhannagar (Salt Lake), Kolkata, with a current capacity of 85,000.It has a grass football pitch and two practice pitches inside the stadium. It is the largest stadium in India by seating capacity. The stadium was inaugurated in January 1984. The stadium post its recent renovation is a treat for sports persons.
The roof of the main stadium is made of metal tubes and aluminium sheets and concrete. The pitch lighting is mounted on the roof rather than the usual mast. There are three electronic scoreboards and control rooms.
The stadium is situated approximately 10 kilometres to the east of the Kolkata downtown and is well connected. It will soon have its own metro station. The stadium has a hotel inside (Stadel), which has two restaurants. The Hyatt Kolkata has a common boundary with the sports complex.

This is the largest stadium in India by seating capacity. At the time of FIFA under 17 world cup the stadium was renovated & got a new look after renovation.The stadium is easily accessible by road, as it lies on the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass & metro station which is 5 min walking distance from the stadium is expected to start running within a month.If you are a football lover or love sports then you will love this place for sure.
