Stay close to the stadium

Traffic is a major issue in Bangalore especially on match days with thousands converging to the venue at nearly at the same time. The best way to avoid traffic is to stay at a hotel nearby and walking to the venue. Arrive at the stadium at least two hours before the start time as security procedures may delay your entry in to the stadium. Coming early will also allow you to take the best seats of the stand.
