Ready to buy tickets???

The season tickets for the Indian Premier League cricket matches at M A Chidambaram Stadium will go on sale from Friday, April 11 at the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) counters. Subsequently, season tickets will be made available at various distribution points across Chennai. The ticket prices for the Season and Daily tickets for different stands are given below:

A Simple Calculation

Assuming that 20% of the seats are allotted to season ticket holders and M A Chidambaram Stadiums has a houseful crowd for all the seven matches, India Cements Ltd would make more than 25 crore rupees from the ticket revenues itself.

 

But the question is

Will the fans turn out in huge numbers for a 3 hour cricket match with such exorbitant ticket prices?

can't believe that there are no online ticket sales for Chennai! a real shame, especially with all the so-called IT boom ...

The regular Cheapuk will give it a miss.

The BPO and the IT crowd will find it cheap.

@ xifio,
Kolkata, Mohali, Jaipur & Bangalore have already outsourced their online ticket sales to ticketpro.in.. I don't each of the organizations did it individually or it comes under a central BCCI contract.. But i think Chennai Super Kings would also follow suit.. So be ready to book the online tickets at ticketpro.in

@ ottayan,
yeah.. with such high ticket prices, the regular Chepauk(Knowledgable crowd) will give it a miss.. We have to find out whether the BPO and IT crowd turn up...

@ Robin,

it's true that those four are using ticketpro.in as an online ticket vendor, but I think it is on a team-by-team basis ... plus the announcement that ticketpro.in would be selling tickets for those four sides was made almost a month ago ...

Mumbai and Delhi, meanwhile, have give the online ticket vending rights to kyazoonga.com ... and again, that news isn't very new ...

but I haven't heard any news on us or Hyderabad's online stuff ... and since all the other teams had released the online ticket information so early, I'm a bit pessimistic about Chennai tickets going on sale online ...

then again, there's always a possibility ... would really appreciate it if you could post links on the blog if you get any info ... I'll do likewise, of course ...

cheers!
