In response to overwhelming demand, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is set to release 400,000 more tickets for the 2023 Men’s ODI World Cup.

Recognizing the tremendous demand for tickets for the 2023 Men’s ODI World Cup, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced its plan to release an additional 400,000 tickets in the upcoming phase of ticket sales.

The BCCI has also revealed that general ticket sales for all matches of the tournament will commence on September 8 at 8 pm IST, following discussions with the hosting state associations.

This initiative aims to accommodate as many passionate cricket fans as possible, allowing them to be part of this historic event. Given the global interest in the World Cup, fans are encouraged to act promptly to secure their tickets.

Tickets can be purchased through the official ticketing website at https://tickets.cricketworldcup.com, and further details regarding the next phase of ticket sales will be provided in due course.

The BCCI expressed deep appreciation for the fans, recognizing their vital role in the success of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. This move comes after fans encountered difficulties while attempting to book tickets for the tournament, especially for matches involving the Indian team.

Ticket sales commenced with non-India games on August 24 for Mastercard users, followed by access for the general public on August 25. Sales for India’s matches took place from August 29 to September 3, while semi-final and final tickets will be available on September 14 and 15.

Many fans expressed their frustration on social media, reporting long queues and extended waiting times, only to discover that tickets were sold out. Additionally, there were speculations on social media that a small percentage of seats were allocated to fans for the highly anticipated India-Pakistan clash on October 14 in Ahmedabad.

Reports also emerged about a website named “viagogo” listing tickets for several matches, including the India-Pakistan game, at exorbitant prices exceeding 50 lakhs and more. Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad called for more transparency in the ticketing system and emphasized the importance of prioritizing genuine cricket fans over corporate and member allocations.
