The Sardar Patel Stadium, commonly known as Motera Stadium, is a cricket stadium in Ahmedabad, India. As of 2020, it is the largest cricket stadium in the world and the second largest stadium overall, with a seating capacity of 110,000 spectators. Owned by the Gujarat Cricket Association, it is a regular venue for Test, ODI, and T20I matches.

The stadium was constructed in 1983, and underwent its first renovation ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2006. It became the regular venue for international matches in the city.

In 2015 the stadium was closed and demolished, and a complete reconstruction was done by 2020, with an estimated cost of ₹800 crore (US$110 million), increasing the capacity to 110,000. The stadium hosted the opening of the 'Namaste Trump' meeting of US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 24 February 2020. 

Apart from cricket, the ground has played host to a number of programs arranged by the Government of Gujarat. The ground has also hosted matches during the 1987, 1996, and 2011 World Cups. The pitch previously used to favour bowlers, but has recently been host to competitive games.
