UP Plans Olympic Grade Sports Infrastructure in Noida

The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) has plans to build an Olympic-grade sports infrastructure in the National Capital Region (NCR), even as IOC member Nita Ambani and Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur have pushed for India to host the 2036 Olympics.

A contemporary Olympic City and Olympic Village with 29 stadiums and over 5,500 lodging/housing units over 5,000 hectares has been proposed for construction in Noida as part of the YEIDA Master Plan 2041.

The vast athletic facility will be built close to Noida's future Jewar International Airport, providing easy access to contemporary air and ground transportation for the anticipated sporting spectacle.

Union Minister Anurag Thakur previously stated that India will submit a proposal for the 2036 Olympics as a result of a significant upgrade in domestic sports infrastructure, trained human resources, and composite growth.

The Master Plan was created in the anticipation that India would one day play host to important sporting events like the Olympics. According to YEIDA Chief Executive Officer Arun Vir Singh, "We have proposed to construct world-class sports infrastructure, which will have a multiplier effect on the economy and GDP.

However, he made it clear that the Master Plan had nothing to do with discussions about India possibly hosting the major athletic event, and the Authority had not heard from the government, the sports authority, or the Olympic Association regarding this.

The Master Plan, according to him, has been authorized by the YEIDA Board and is currently awaiting state government clearance before further action is done.

In the vicinity of the 165-km Yamuna Expressway, which connects Agra with the Noida district of Uttar Pradesh, YEIDA is the authorized nodal agency for supporting a variety of projects, including industrial, housing, infrastructure, etc.

The projected Olympic City and Village will also have amenities like open spaces, shopping malls, convention centers, theme parks, and sports clubs and training facilities. During flagship events, the residential arcade will be built to accommodate a sizable number of participating athletes, coaches, and officials.

Singh stated that the infrastructure would be built by the government without using the public-private partnership (PPP) model or requesting direct investment from private enterprises, without elaborating on the anticipated investment.

He claimed that the Jewar airport would provide the YEIDA Master Plan a boost by facilitating faster air connections and spurring economic growth in the Noida region.

Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, has been fervently promoting the state as a significant athletic centre among Indian states.

MotoGP Bharat, India's first-ever international motorcycle race, was recently held in Uttar Pradesh (UP) from September 22?24 at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida. Over the course of the three days, the event created Rs 1,000 crore in economic activity.

The Chief Minister attended the competition on the last day and presented the trophy to the victor. Alongside MotoGP Bharat, he presided over a business summit attended by the CEOs of important domestic and international businesses.

Grand Prix motorcycle racing, or MotoGP, is regarded as the pinnacle of bike racing worldwide. It is the global championship in motorsport with the longest history. The Isle of Man TT hosted the inaugural competition in 1949.
