Gachhibowli was the proud host of an integrated sports complex in the combined state. After bifurcation residual Andhra was left with no great sporting facilities. To fill this much felt gap a Multi Sports Complex is proposed at Gandigundam near Vizag.
Gandigundam is on the proposed Anandapuram – Sabbavaram national highway bypass and is also host to several other developments. The VUDA has been assigned for preparing designs for the development of the Sports Complex with a stadium and supporting facilities for organising the international, and national sporting events.
An extent of 79 acres has been allocated for the development of the complex. About 32 sports events have been identified which would be held at the complex and the finalisation of design will be done by the Chief Minister. The Chief Minster has proposed to host the forthcoming National Games in Visakhapatnam ( along with Amaravati) and for that purpose the Sports Complex is needed to be completed by 2018.
Since the proposed Sports Complex is bigger than the Gachi Bowli Stadium and a landmark to Visakhapatnam, facilities are expected to be of highest standard including of facilities for accommodation, hospitality, sale points for sports material and other needs.
