It is an added feather into the crown of Kerala as well as of Kannur itself to have an exclusively ( to be Air conditioned ) Mundyad Indoor Stadium with the sitting capacity of 5000. It is first of its kind in the Northern Region of Kerala . The Stadium was inaugurated by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on January 15. 2015 in Presence of Ministers Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan and K.C. Joseph t on the land that once belonged to the Animal Husbandry Department’s regional poultry farm .
This multi-purpose indoor stadium constructed at Mundayad here for hosting basketball and wrestling events of the 35th National Games is expected to give an impetus to sports in the district and had got applauses from the International Players as well as from the International Referees who have Participated in the National Games
The stadium has been constructed on 6.55 hectares at Mundayad which had been handed over to the District Sports Council by the Animal Husbandry Department for developing the proposed sports complex. The Stadium is Situated 7 km away from Kannur Town . The Stadium is a suitable place to organize assorts of National as well as International level indoor games such as Basket Ball, Volley Ball, Table-Tennis, Gymnastics, Hand Ball, Boxing, Wrestling, Badminton, Tennis etc. and can be hired for such sporting events. It possesses the central arena of 6o m x 40 m size the biggest in the State can accommodate even 3 Basketball Courts , rooms for participants am and Glass Cubicles for commentators ,Doordharshan ,etc.
Apart from this an Outdoor Flood Lit Facility for Basketball was also there , as well as other Games the design of the building and energy-saving measures adopted make this structure unique. Advanced techniques in lighting, ventilation and roofing have reduced cost of the project considerably
