The 16th edition of the tournament’s championship game is in high demand among fans since MS Dhoni will play in another Indian Premier League final. The Narendra Modi stadium was a complete mess as supporters fought to get their tickets due to the enthusiasm.
For the internet ticket sales, PayTm and BCCI have a partnership. Even yet, the viewers must pick up the actual copy from the stadium after selecting their seats. This regulation resulted in lengthy lines of people standing in the hot sun in front of the stadium’s ticket office. On the internet, a video that shows the arena in complete turmoil has gone viral.
Fans angry at board for mismanagement
The biggest stakeholders in Indian cricket, the fans, felt cheated on knowing that they are required to collect physical copies of their tickets. A fan, in a video posted on Twitter, was heard saying that he paid the connvenience fee to the ticket-booking website and yet he was at the stadium, standing in a long queue, to collect a physical copy, without which he would not be allowed inside the stadium to watch the final.
There were other tweets, which we have mentioned below, in which fans are upset with the ticket booking process. A fan alleged that tickets went missing seconds after they were open for sale.
