As preparations for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final are underway in Lahore, police on Tuesday released a detailed parking plan for spectators of the match.

The Punjab government decided on Monday to hold the March 5 final at Lahore's Qadhafi Stadium after weeks of speculation amid heightened security as the country reels from a recent surge in terror attacks.

Police and army contingents are to be deployed in and around the stadium, and no parking will be allowed within 400 yards of the venue.

Five-tier security — almost equal to that extended to heads of states — will be accorded to all players during their travel to and from the stadium.

Additionally, biometric identification of all those coming to the stadium to watch the match will be mandatory and no one will be allowed entry without showing his or her Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC).
