Tickets for the ODI World Cup 2023 will be available for online purchase through both Paytm and BookMyShow
The BCCI has entrusted the management of ODI World Cup 2023 ticket sales to two prominent online platforms, namely BookMyShow and Paytm. Despite the online booking option, attendees will still be required to carry physical copies of their actual tickets when attending the matches at the stadiums.
The distribution of World Cup matches between the two ticketing companies is expected to be evenly split, with each handling roughly half of the matches. Specifically, tickets for the semifinals, scheduled at the Wankhede Stadium and the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, will be available on Paytm.com. On the other hand, high-profile matches like India vs. Pakistan (IND vs. PAK) and the final of the ODI World Cup will be accessible for booking through Bookmyshow.com, according to a source reported by TOI.
ICC ODI World Cup 2023 Tickets Prices to be finalised by July 31
BCCI chief Jay Shah said Thursday in New Delhi after a meeting with national associations that ticket sales will only start after the entire rescheduling process has been completed. He urged state officials to inform Indian authorities of final ticket prices by July 31.
However, Shah has suggested that main event spectators will need printed tickets.
In addition to stadiums, the Indian Board will designate additional pick-up locations in each city for spectators to receive their tickets for the 2023 World Cup, which starts on 5 October.
ICC and BCCI will receive 300 free hospitality tickets for each match as needed. In addition, states will have to provide the ICC with 1,295 league tickets and 1,355 tickets against India and the semi-finals.
The National Association is committed to providing the Indian Board with 500 free general admission tickets to the 2023 ODI World Cup. If the ICC (250 hospitality tickets and 1800 general admission tickets) and BCCI (300 hospitality tickets and 300 general grandstand seats) decide to purchase additional tickets, BCCI recommends that the state provide additional hospitality tickets.
In addition to these caps, a national authority can purchase an additional 40 tickets for each match, with the remaining 10% of his purchases coming from ICC Tour partners.
