35th National Games from Jan 31 - Feb 15, 2015 in Trivandrum!

The 35th National Games of India will be held in Kerala, predominantly in Trivandrum, from January 31 to February 15, 2015.

Trivandrum not only hosts the lion's share of the events at about half a dozen venues across the city as well as the state-of-the-art Games Village but the State Capital will also be the venue for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Games, at the upcoming, stunning new International Stadium near Technopark.

To remind us of how close we are to the Opening Ceremony, I will keep a countdown timer at the top of the right border of the blog till the Games are done!

Summer at the Stadium

The 50,000 seat Trivandrum International Stadium is taking final shape as concessionaire IL&FS commences construction of the raker beams that will support the upper level of pre-fabricated stands. The first set of sloping beams, the first of their kind in any Indian stadium, are already up near the North Pavilion, giving a good idea of how high the final structure will be. The whole structure will be topped by the state-of-the-art membrane roof and lighting towers.
