Pakistan Cricket Board’s decision to bring PSL final from Dubai to Karachi brought smiles to many fans. But what was to be good news turned bad news for cricket lovers when the ticket prices for the much anticipated match increased many folds.
With the news of the final match at the National Stadium, excited fans waiting to see live action have been left disappointed by the ticket prices.
Ticket prices of National Stadium’s two enclosures have been increased with the previously Rs. 1000 ticket being now sold for Rs. 12,000.
Iqbal Qasim enclosure has a capacity of 2,537 while, Naseem-ul- Ghani enclosure has a capacity of 3570 seats.
The announcement of the increase in ticket prices will soon be made on the courier company’s website following which the tickets will be available from March 15.
Karachi stadium is said to have a capacity of 34,000 people. According to reports, around Rs1.5 billion is being spent for the renovation which required more time than the last four months. The construction works will also be done after the PSL final, like lying roofs above the stands.
Hospitality boxes and dressing rooms are being refurbished while two electric lifts backed by standby generators will be fully functional during the PSL 3 final match. No doubt, the revamp will help the stadium revive its lost glory even after the game.
