    Dear mod, Can you answer some questions, so i can sleep peacefully at night : )
    thank u : )

    1. How much crowd will all 3 venues will hold ? since there was some changes in all three venues .

    2. The old Premadasa had 2 stands with lower and upper decks, the new one has only 1 stand along side with upper and lower decks, will it hold more crowds than the old one ?

    3. The original plan of Suriyawewa had, a media box, a grand stand and two additional stands beside the grand stand. Since the plan to build additonal stands is dropped, will it be empty where the additonal stands were suppose to be or would there be some kind of arrangement ?

    4. And finally When do you expect these constructions to be completed by ?

    • SLC Moderator

      1. RPS = 30,000 Sooriyawewa = 25,000 Pallekele=23,000

      2.RPS will hold more crowds after the refurbishment. All blocks A,B.C & D will have upper and lower decks.

      3. There will be concrete tiers in the subjected areas.

      4. All Stadiums to be completed by the end of the year.
