As cricket fever grips the country, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee, Najam Sethi, said on Thursday that he would instruct the management to slash the prices of tickets for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season eight matches scheduled in Karachi for students below the age of 18.
The development comes after some students, present at the National Bank Cricket Arena in the port city, appealed to Sethi to reduce the price of tickets.
PSL 2023: Ticket prices halved for Karachi stu-dents “We want to watch PSL matches at the stadium but ticket prices don’t allow us to do that.
“However, he [Sethi] has promised that ticket prices will be halved and for that we are grateful,” he added.
The offer is currently only valid for students in Karachi. It must be noted that fans can visit pcb.bookme.pk to book their tickets online for the Karachi-leg matches. Physical tickets will also be available to the fans during the course of the tour-nament from the box offices at the four venues.
Earlier, for the non-Sunday matches in Karachi, ticket prices had been set at Rs2,900 (VIP), Rs1,900 (Premium), Rs950, and Rs650 for First Class and General Enclosures, respectively.—Agencies
