The R. Premadasa Stadium is the biggest cricket stadium in Sri Lanka. It has the capacity to accommodate more than 35,000 spectators at a time. It is also one of the most important and famous cricket stadiums in Sri Lanka, having hosted more than 100 one day internationals. The idea of this stadium was put forward by ex-president of Sri Lanka Ranasinghe Premadasa. Visit the stadium and get a feel of how it would be like to stand there and cheer for your team – with 35,000 more people following suit. Maybe you can plan a holiday when there is an international match scheduled to be played at R. Premadasa. That would be double the fun, won’t it!
