The Indian Premier League is back in India and that too with a few spectators in the stadiums. The league stage of the 15th edition of the Indian T20 League is being played across four stadiums in Maharashtra. With only 25% crowd allowed for the initial few games of the tournament, fans earlier complained about the high prices of tickets.

Now, after reaching the venue and not finding the seats worth the ticket prices, fans have started trolling the organizers. A user shared a picture of the seats at the Brabourne Stadium for the match between Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians and wrote “Surely for 3K ticket prices, acche seats toh de dete. WTF Brabourne? ” in the caption.

Few other users also joined the conversation and expressed displeasure at the bad management. “At least could have put shade in over there,” added one user.

BCCI to increase crowd capacity going forward

As already mentioned, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has only allowed a 25% crowd in the first few games. However, the board has plans to increase the capacity gradually going forward in the tournament. “The matches will be played across stadiums in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai & Pune with an audience occupancy rate of 25% as per COVID-19 protocols. In all, 20 matches each will be held at Wankhede Stadium & DY Patil Stadium, 15 matches each at Brabourne and MCA International Stadium, Pune,” the board had said in its release.

Meanwhile, Cricbuzz had claimed that the board will allow more than a 25% crowd going forward in the league stages.  “That is our understanding. Going forward the stadiums will have more fans than initial games,” the website had quoted an office-bearer of the BCCI. “With Covid cases coming down by the day, we are hoping more people will be in the stands,” he had added.
