Saikia said, “We are expecting a full house. Out of about 38,000 seats, 21,200 were for the general public and the tickets were sold online in two phases. The tickets were sold out in no time.”
”Usually, 40-50 percent of tickets sent to the districts return unsold. This time, hardly 100 tickets have come back to us. The fact that the ticket sale was completely transparent ensured that genuine lovers of the game will get an opportunity to watch their favourite players in action. There is unprecedented enthusiasm among them,” Saikia further added regarding India vs South Africa match.
It is mentioned that another 12,000 tickets were made available for the public through the district associations, and those were sold over the counters. The excitement among the people is even more as the last match hosted at the venue in January 2020.
Security and traffic arrangements are working in coordination as the match day is in the middle of Durga Puja and required arrangements have been made for all aspects including crowd management.
