The two facilities will nurture talent to make them future champions
• Adani Sportsline will further upscale the state-of-the-art sports arena infrastructure
• It will set up world-class training academies, including cricket, basketball, volleyball, and tennis
Ahmedabad, 17 July, 2023: Adani Sportsline, the sports arm of the Adani Group, has won the transparent and competitive bid for the operation and maintenance of the 44,543 sq m Sabarmati Riverfront sports parks on the east and west sides of Ahmedabad.
Amdavadis with a passion for sports and hoping to make it big can now utilize the jogging tracks, gymnasiums, cricket pitches, and basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts available at the parks. They were developed by the Sabarmati Riverfront Development Corporation as a part of Smart Cities mission to provide quality training and space with proper amenities for competitive sports. The parks also have children’s play areas and skating rinks.
The state-of-the-art riverfront sports complex hopes to host national and international tournaments soon and become the preferred destination for budding athletes and enthusiasts. Adani Sportsline will kickstart a journey to bring change at the grassroots level by establishing training academies at the complex to offer top-notch coaching. The academies will have coaches with the knowledge and experience to work with both beginners and advanced athletes. They will provide comprehensive support and guidance to help individuals excel in their chosen sports disciplines and reach the top of their game.
Adani Sportsline aims to create world-class sportspersons by equipping them with the best infrastructure and training. It owns and operates teams that participate in national and international leagues such as BCCI’s Women’s Premier League, International League T20 at UAE, Pro Kabbadi League, and Ultimate Kho Kho League, among others. It supports talent at the grassroots level through the ‘#GarvHai’ initiative and provides financial support and training to promising athletes. Among those who have benefited are Commonwealth Games gold medallist wrestlers Ravi Kumar Dahiya and Deepak Punia and boxer Amit Panghal.
Because of Adani Sportsline’s deep involvement in sporting welfare and encouraging talent, legends like former India women’s cricket captain Mithali Raj, former cricketer and leading coach Andy Flower, and champion kabaddi coach Ram Mehar Singh joined hands with it. Adani Sportsline also encourages a healthy lifestyle through the Ahmedabad Marathon, which sees huge participation, and supports the Indian armed forces.
The iconic Sabarmati Riverfront symbolises the very essence of Ahmedabad. The riverfront complex not only adds to the beauty and infrastructure of the city but also encourages a culture of fitness and sports amongst the general public.
