The Stadium is situated in the busy city of Colombo. Cricket fans around Srilanka could easily reach the stadium by public transport services. Shanty houses can be seen in the surrounding, therefore safe vehicle parking is major issue for spectators. I suggest the spectators to use public transport services or taxis.

When there is no match you can only see it from outside. This is considered cricketer's paradise in Lanka. Every budding cricketer dreams of playing on this ground!

Been there for cricket matches and it looks average. But the only dislike is the alley that we have to walk through to get into the stadium

It was my first visit to an International match since discovering a love of the only sport there is, cricket Sadly Sri Lanka lost Don't even consider getting there in a car, go by taxi or tuk tuk, even then it's a fair walk to the entrance as most roads are closed off by the police.
