The Bogra District Stadium in Rajshahi was one of the five purpose-built cricket grounds established in the run-up to the 2004 Under-19 World Cup. It was finally granted full international status in January 2006, ahead of Sri Lanka's visit to the country. Bogra serves as the nerve-centre of northern Bangladesh and the promise of international cricket is a significant step in its development as a city of note. The recent construction of a four-star hotel brings the city into line with ICC lodging requirements.
