The stage is set for the ODI World Cup 2023 as the World Governing Body has unveiled the schedule for the marquee event. But despite the release of the schedule two weeks back, there is no official update about ticket pricing & reservations. Fans are getting frustrated as the ICC has given no update about the World Cup 2023 Tickets sale. However, CAB has released the prices for the fixtures under their jurisdiction & it seems like the other venues will do the same.
With ICC not giving any updates on tickets sale, fans are not able to plan their travel itinerary properly. As expected the blockbuster IND vs PAK fixture will be the center of attraction with fans planning to witness the fixture from the premises of Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on October 15.
World Cup 2023 Tickets to be opened for Online Sale
There are chances that ICC would open World Cup 2023 tickets for sale online. Fans & cricket lovers could book their tickets online from the Official ICC Cricket World Cup Website. On the other hand, tickets will also be available on Bookmyshow, Paytm, and Paytm Insiders. The plan is to provide greater assess to tickets online instead offline. This is because it’s easy for fans to avail the tickets online rather than standing in queue for tickets.
Despite no clarity over the availability of tickets, Hotels in the selected venues have already started receiving bookings for the ODI World Cup 2023 fixtures. In fact, fans have started booking hotels in Ahmedabad to witness much awaited IND vs PAK fixture in Ahmedabad on October 15. Hotels in places like Pune, Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Kolkata are also receiving inquiries for bookings.
“We have already got room bookings for the India-Pakistan match dates at our Ahmedabad hotel. Inquiries and bookings are also started for our hotels in Pune, Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Kolkata. It is expected that most hotels in these cities will get sold out on match dates,” said Kevin Ashley Martis, general manager of sales and marketing (Western India), The Fern Hotels & Resorts told Money Control.
The prestigious ODI World Cup is all set to kick start on October 5 with England playing the curtain-raising clash against New Zealand in Ahmedabad. Meanwhile, India will kickstart its campaign in October against Australia in Chennai.
