Sri Adoor Prakash MLA said the Kallada irrigation project had allotted the land of the indoor stadium and the Pramadom grama panchayat of the open stadium. The Kerala Sports Council had contributed Rs.5 lakh for developing the latter.

The MLA said a proposal had been made for setting up a Sport Authority of India school and an athlete training centre at the stadium complex.
