Mumbai: The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 fan park moves to Nadiad in Gujarat and Guntur in Andhra Pradesh this weekend. The Kheda District Cricket Association at College Road in Nadiad and B.R. Stadium in Old Guntur’s Sai Nagar will be the two venues for the fan parks this weekend, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Anurag Thakur said in a statement on Wednesday.

On April 25, Mumbai Indians will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at 4 p.m. before Chennai Super Kings face Kings XI Punjab in the 8 p.m. match. The next day, defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders meet table-toppers Rajasthan Royals at 4 p.m. before Delhi Daredevils face Royal Challengers Bangalore at 8 p.m. The gates to the fan parks open at 2 p.m.

The fan parks enable fans from non-IPL hosting cities and towns to experience IPL games in near-Stadium experience as they come in large numbers to view matches on the big screen. The initiative has been met with success so far. The fan parks are organised on weekends so as to garner maximum attention and traffic.
