UPCA secretary Rajeev Shukla on Friday (27 Nov. 2009) said the Jaypee Group, who are developing a Sports city in Greater Noida are building a cricket stadium there and UPCA has already inked a fifty-year agreement with them to hold matches.

He added that stadium will be ready by 2011 and it will hold Twenty20 and One-Day International matches. Initially the spectator capacity at the stadium will be 40,000 but it will be increased to one lakh gradually.

Shukla said they were ready to take Green Park Stadium on lease from the state government but they have not been successful in convincing the authorities. He said they were looking for a land between Kanpur and Lucknow to have their own stadium.[5]
