The Andheri Sports Complex which was established with the main aim of providing a platform to hold school events is today prominently known for holding reality shows. According to sources for the last 5 years there has been no school function held here. This is the Andheri Sports Complex that was built in the year 1988 at a cost of Rs 30 crores, with the aim of holding annual sports festival of schools. But today it is only known for holding reality shows, fashion shows and marriages. According to reliable sources, there has not been any kind of sports festival of schools held here in the last five years. The Andheri Sports Complex has a huge stadium, football and hockey ground and badminton and tennis courts. Apart from sports, the complex also has a hall for cultural programs. Unfortunately, the complex is existing today merely for commercial events. We spoke with the BMC Commissioner Jairaj Pathak and this is what he had to say on the matter. While the Commissioner says that commercial events are just held once in a while, the main purpose of the Andheri sports Complex cannot be forgotten.
