ISLAMABAD: In a welcome boost for the game and fans in Oman and the UAE, the International Cricket Council has made more tickets available for all games at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
According to a press release issued by the ICC, the tickets went on sale via www.t20worldcup.com/tickets at 1900GST from Monday.
The ICC and event host BCCI have worked closely with host country authorities to ensure fans can be welcomed in a safe environment and Covid-19 protocols will apply at all venues.
Chris Tetley, the ICC head of events said, “We know Oman and the UAE are packed with sports fans from all 16 nations competing at the event, so we're delighted to be able to release more tickets for all games. We’ve worked closely with our hosts, the venues and our partners to ensure as many fans as possible can be part of what is going to be such a fantastic event.
“It is important that fans only buy tickets through the official channels at www.t20worldcup.com/tickets. We cannot guarantee that any ticket bought on secondary sites will provide access to the match as the unique barcode may have been copied or compromised. We will cancel tickets we identify as being resold, meaning fans would have wasted their money on an invalid ticket that won't get them into the game,” Tetley added.
Tickets went on sale last week with thousands being snapped up in record time. However, there are now tickets available for games across all four venues — Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Muscat.
