Controversy Erupts Over Ticket Prices for PAK vs IND Clash at T20 World Cup 2024

T20 World Cup 2024 ticket controversy

Ahead of the highly anticipated clash between India and Pakistan at the T20 World Cup 2024 on June 9 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, controversy has arisen over ticket pricing.

Former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi has alleged that tickets for the match are being sold at exorbitant prices, reaching up to $20,000 per seat. Modi criticized the International Cricket Council (ICC), accusing them of prioritizing profits over promoting the game.

While the ICC has stated that ticket prices for the tournament range from $300 (now sold out) to $10,000, Modi’s claims have stirred debate about the accessibility of cricket matches, especially high-profile encounters like India vs Pakistan.

The clash between these arch-rivals always garners immense attention, with previous instances witnessing ticket prices soaring due to overwhelming demand. The absence of bilateral series between India and Pakistan since 2013 has only heightened anticipation for such encounters, making ticket availability a contentious issue.

India’s T20 World Cup journey will kick off on June 5 against Ireland, followed by a match against Pakistan the next day in New York. The team will then face the hosts, the USA, before concluding their Group A campaign against Canada.
