The Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium is also known as the New VCA stadium, is a cricket ground built in 2008. It is located in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India.

The ground was inaugurated in 2008 and it replaced the old Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground as the main stadium in the city. The new Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium is a top class venue which has been praised by cricket's parent body ICC.

Of late the stadium has been criticised for its over turning and low pitch that turned out to be a batting hell for batsmen which was witnessed in the Test series in 2015 and also the ICC World T20.

The stadium has played home to several Test, ODI and T20I matches for India.

VCA Stadium is the home ground for the Vidarbha and Central Zone teams for the domestic Ranji Trophy and Duleep Trophy tournaments, respectively.

It has also seen hoisting three IPL matches in the past in the 3rd edition of the league. It was the home for former team Deccan Chargers during those three games.

This season three matches of the Kings XI Punjab is slated to be played here.
