History


The DY Patil Stadium was inaugurated in March, 2008 prior to the first Indian Premier Leagues season.


The first match to be played at this ground was an IPL match between Mumbai Indians and Hyderabad Deccan Chargers in which Mumbai Indians lost by 10 wickets.


Major Matches


The DY Patil Stadium hosted its first major match as the final of the Indian Premier League 2008 which was won by the Rajasthan Royals by three wickets. The match was taken till the last ball and crowned the first IPL Champions.


Another major event at this stadium took place two years later when it hosted the 2010 IPL final between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. The match was won by Chennai Super Kings by 22 runs.


Controversies


The DY Patil Stadium hosted England Lions for two weeks in 2012 without seeking approval from the BCCI and the Mumbai Cricket Association and thus was stripped off of the upcoming international matches.


The stadium was the venue of Justin Bieber 2017 concert in India which received wide criticism throughout the nation. The stadium has now transformed itself into a football ground and hosts ISL matches.
