The historic cricket ground, Wankhede Stadium of Mumbai is related to many historic moments in Cricket such as India winning the 2011 World Cup, the batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's retirement and many more.
According to the news going rounds , the stadium may get a new name as many corporate are showing interest in getting their names attached to the stadium. The decision will be shortly taken by the association members, which may be next week and then the bid price will also be decided.
A senior Mumbai Cricket Association official said, “We have got requests from a few corporates like IMG-Reliance and DDB Mudra and while talks are on, rechristening is definitely in the pipeline this time round. The rights will be sold for a 5-year span and it should help in raking in money to promote the game in the grassroots level.”
