Ticket prices halved for students in Karachi

The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee, Najam Sethi, has halved the prices of tickets for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season eight matches in Karachi for students below the age of 18.

The development comes after some of the students, present at the National Bank Cricket Arena in Karachi on Thursday, appealed to Sethi to reduce the price of tickets.

“We want to watch PSL matches at the stadium but ticket prices don’t allow us to do that. This is why we asked Najam Sethi to make entry free for students,” one of the students, named Mohib Ali, said.

“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 to book their tickets online for the Karachi-leg matches. Physical tickets will also be available to the fans during the course of the tournament 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.

For Sunday, February 19, mouth-watering match between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars, ticket prices had been fixed at Rs5,000 for the VIP enclosures, Rs3,000 for the Premium, Rs2,000 in First Class and Rs1,000 in General.

For the final fixture in Karachi on Sunday, February 26, between Karachi Kings and Multan Sultans, ticket prices had been set for Rs4,000 (VIP), Rs2,000 (Premium), Rs1,500 and Rs1,000 for First Class and General Enclosures, respectively.
