The DY Patil Stadium (officially known as Dr. DY Patil Sports Stadium) is a multi-purpose sports arena in Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.[4][5]

Owned by Marathi politician Dnyandeo Yashwantrao Patil, it is based in the D.Y. Patil Sports Academy in Nerul. It is primarily a cricket stadium, though it is sometimes used for football, music concerts and other events.

It was inaugurated on 4 March 2008 as the home ground of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians (MI). It has hosted the inuagral IPL season's final in 2008 and the 2010 season final.[6] In 2022 season the arena hosted number of games.[7]

The stadium has also hosted international football matches during the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup, 2022 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, 2022 AFC Women's Asian Cup and the 2023–24 AFC Champions League.

The capacity of 45,300 makes it the ninth-largest cricket stadium in India. The stadium makes use of bucket seats and cantilever roofs that eliminate the need for columns. This provides the spectators with an unobstructed view of the match from any place within the stands. On the other hand, the stadium has a 120-person capacity air-conditioned media center. The upper level of the viewing galleries has 60 private corporate boxes.[8] This stadium also holds an inter-school cricket match for DY Patil International school every year.

The arena is hosting games of the Women's Premier League (WPL) since 4 March 2023. It has hosted the opening game-ceremony and scheduled to host final match.[9]
