Over 200 labourers are working to refurbish venue for Pro Kabaddi League matches

Around 200 men are working day and night to refurbish the otherwise shambled Sawai Man Singh Indoor Stadium where Jaipur Pink Panthers will lock horns with Bangaluru Bulls this Wednesday in Pro Kabaddi League’s 43rd match.
From PWD officials to painters, electricians to chefs and support staff to engineers - all are working in-tandem to given an international-look to the indoor stadium. For adequate cooling during the games, high-capacity central air conditioning mechanisms have been put in place. There is a web of poles under the metal roof, which doesn’t have a single pillar. Hundreds of lights have been fitted on these polls. Several spotlights have also been fitted.
As far as the venue’s seating capacity is concerned, it has been doubled now.
“Earlier we had 1,012 seats in the stadium but now we have increased them to almost double. The support has been phenomenal here. From administration to police to workers, all have been really supportive,” said Juspreet Singh Walia, executive director, GS Worldwide Entertainment which has the responsibility of readying the venue.
It should be known that the Sawai Man Singh Indoor Stadium has the second lowest capacity standing just before Patna and way less than Kolkata which has a seating capacity of 12,000. The ticket sale is also on a high for the league as almost 40% of the tickets have been sold out.
“For the first game in Jaipur, 40% tickets have been sold out. We have two categories of tickets. For the front rows, there are a total of 270 tickets, each priced at Rs600. Then we have Rs300 tickets for which we have 1,100 seats,” Singh added. There are several ticket counters at stadium gates. Jaipur will host seven matches from August 20 to 23.
