Greater Noida: The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) has decided to transform the Shaheed Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex into a sports excellence centre. The Authority will now outsource its operations and maintenance to a private company.The 38-acre sports complex offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor sports facilities, such as cricket, volleyball, tennis, and badminton, and has a swimming pool too.The cricket ground at this complex used to be the home ground for the Afghanistan cricket team, the Ranji matches, and the Afghanistan-Netherlands T-20 series. Additionally, it has hosted pro-kabaddi events. While previously, renowned coaches used to operate their coaching centres here, currently, no coaching centres are in operation. Despite several attempts by the Authority to attract sports academies, they remained unsuccessful.The GNIDA is now prepared to lease the stadium to a suitable company to enhance its operations. In line with this, they have issued an expression of interest, inviting interested companies to submit their proposals by November 10. A pre-bid meeting is scheduled for October 30, during which companies will have the opportunity to give presentations and suggestions. The selection of the company will be based on these presentations. The Authority will enter into a revenue-sharing agreement with the chosen company, with specific terms and conditions outlined.The contract will initially be for five years, with the possibility of a two-year extension. The selected company will have the freedom to establish sports academies at the complex and sublet the facilities. The Authority believes entrusting the entire complex to a single company will streamline its management.Apart from hosting sports, the complex will also have provisions for restaurants and shops, offering a complete experience for sports, dining, and shopping enthusiasts.The revenue streams for the bidding agency would be coaching for multiple sports, tournaments and sponsorships, advertisements for self-promotion by the coaching agencies, and club arenas comprising restaurants, shops, kiosks, and food courts. However, GNIDA will hold the rights and revenue of ground bookings, pay-and-play facilities, and sports complex memberships.We also published the following articles recentlyMini-sports complex with rubber track, courts for tennis & badminton opens in PklA mini-sports complex has been inaugurated in Panchkula, Haryana, at a cost of Rs 69 lakh.
