The Indian Premier League has announced the sale of online tickets for the second season in South Africa starting April 18.
The tickets for the double-header in Cape Town on April 18 are priced between R 50 for students to R 200/150 for the grand stands and are inclusive of the opening ceremony. Kingsmead in Durban hosts 16 games, the most for a single venue, and the tickets are priced between R 25 for students to R 150 for the grand stands.
The organisers have focused on making the tickets affordable, in order to attract youngsters to the event. The tournament had to be moved out of India due to the general elections in the country.
The prices are relatively cheaper in the smaller venues like East London, Port Elizabeth, Kimberley and Bloemfontein, ranging between R 10 and R 75.
“We had promised our fans in the Rainbow Nation of a non-stop cricket carnival and the attractive ticket pricing,” Lalit Modi, the IPL commissioner, said. “I think should be a huge impetus for fans to come and see some of the best cricketing talent in the world, display their prowess on the field.” Fans can avail tickets at the official website www.computicket.com.
