Mumbai: The revamped Wankhede stadium, which recently came under the scanner of the fire department for not following safety norms, on Tuesday received a no objection certificate (NOC) from the Mumbai Fire Brigade to stage World Cup matches.
"We have given NOC to the stadium. They have fulfilled all the fire safety norms at the stadium," deputy chief fire officer A N Shinde, who inspected the stadium with his team, told PTI here.
A team of fire officials conducted an inspection at the stadium this morning to check the fire safety mechanism. This was the fourth inspection conducted by the department.
