Kanpur: Kanpur Smart City Limited, the sports directorate and Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) will soon construct a visitors gallery at the Green Park stadium to describe the cricket history of Green Park.
The proposed visitors gallery will tell the 70 years long history of the Green Park. BCCI, UPCA and the sports directorate will provide historical items such as rare photographs of the players, cricket equipment, news published in the newspapers, trophies, medals etc for the visitors gallery likely to open in November.
Divisional commissioner Raj Shekhar and UPCA officials have appealed to the sports lovers that if they have anything associated with the history of Green Park they could share them with the district administration by November 15. These items would be displayed at the visitors gallery to attract visitors, he said.
The divisional commissioner convened a meeting at the directorate pavilion on Wednesday and discussed the proposals and reviewed preparation for the forthcoming test match to be held from November 25 against the visiting New Zealand team.
The visitors gallery is proposed to be set up at the directorate pavilion, and the construction company has been asked to construct a museum and an audio visual gallery before the match.
The UPCA representative said UPCA had collected around 120 photographs and some sports materials.
The commissioner asked the UPCA official to provide contents for an audio visual film within a week and contact all former cricketers to collect the 70-year-long history of Green Park and scorer sheets of the matches held at the stadium.
During the meeting, the commissioner asked the project manager of Rajkiya Nirman Nigam to install a lift at the Media centre within 40 days and provide the specification details to him within two days so that its technical valuation could be done and then start the installation work.
