Punjab Kings announced a new venue to host their upcoming Indian Premier League 2024 home games on Monday, February 26. PBKS will play their IPL 2024 home games at the newly updated Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Stadium located in Mullanpur, Mohali.

The IPL organisers announced the schedule for the first 21 matches on February 22 where Chennai Super Kings will be clashing against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Punjab Kings are facing neighbours Delhi Capitals in their first game of the upcoming season in Mohali on March 23.

Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Stadium has hosted domestic matches in the last two years and has the capacity to host 33,000 fans. Punjab Kings played their past home games at Inderjit Singh Bindra Stadium since 2008, which has a capacity of 27,000.

The stadium has reportedly a state-of-the-art infrastructure with a well-equipped herringbone drainage system and international-standard dressing rooms which provide steam, a sauna and a gym.

Meanwhile, Mohali is set to schedule only one game in the first phase of the IPL schedule on March 23. Punjab Kings are scheduled to play against Royal Challengers Bangalore (March 25), Lucknow Super Giants (March 30) and Gujarat Titans (April 4) in their first three away matches in the upcoming IPL 2024. 

Shikhar Dhawan-led PBKS finished the IPL 2023 edition in the eighth position with just six wins in their 14 group-stage games. They recorded only one win in five matches at PCA Inderjit Singh Bindra Stadium in the Indian Premier League 2023 edition.

Punjab Kings released Shahrukh Khan, Raj Bawa, Baltej Dhanda, Mohit Rathee and Bhanuka Rajapaksa after the poor performance. PBKS signed Harshal Patel, Chris Woakes, Ashutosh Sharma, Vishwanath Pratap Singh, Tanay Thiagrajan, Shashank Singh, Prince Choudhary and South African star batter Rilee Rossouw in the IPL 2024 player auction in December to hope for a successful campaign.
