The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning to shift its headquarter to Bengaluru. Currently, it resides in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium for several years but it may get a shift from there in next couple of years.

Board is planning to shift headquarter in newly constructing National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. It is under construction at the outskirt of Bengaluru on Board-owned 40 acre land. The Committee of Administrator (CoA) is very keen to shift it.

CK Khanna, acting president of BCCI, wrote a letter to all board members, where he suggested that current administration is lacking in good infrastructure and facilities.

He wrote in that letter “People are of the strong view that present administrative premises of the Board do not have adequate and appropriate office infrastructure nor there is any further scope of expansion. I strongly suggest that since BCCI has acquired 40 acres of land at Bengaluru which is in the close vicinity of the airport for its most ambitious project of NCA, this whole land can be used optimally if along with NCA.”

The committee is in favor to host board’s meetings and conferences in the new National Cricket Academy. As of now, these meetings take place in five-star hotels of major cities.

The same letter further reads “This plot after earmarking major part of the land for NCA on the advice of experts, may also be used for BCCI’s new office and residential accommodation, after assessing the need for various categories of guests that are likely to use the same such as our own Board officials, affiliated states officials, VIP guests, cricketers and others.”
