Dubai, Oct 11: The International Cricket Council (ICC) are aware of the fact that Oman and UAE are packed with cricket fans and have decided to give out more tickets for all matches of the tournament. The ICC Mega event will commence from 17th October and run till 14th November. The additional tickets went on sale on Monday. This might just be your last chance to get hold of a ticket for the most anticipated clash between arch-rivals India and Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on October 24.

The International Cricket Council and the tournament’s official host BCCI have worked closely with the authorities in UAE and Oman, where the matches will be held, to ensure fans can be welcomed in a safe environment as the COVID-19 protocols will be applied at all venues.

Chris Tetley, head of events, ICC 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. The expat community in the region means every team can enjoy home support and with tickets from just 10 OMR (Omani rial) and 30 AED (Emirati Dirham), we hope to see stands full of passionate cricket fans cheering their team on,” Tetley said.

The ICC Head of Events have urged the fans to have patience as the demand for tickets to ICC events is always high.

“Demand is always incredibly high for tickets to ICC events, so I’d urge fans to be patient and we look forward to welcoming them to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021.”

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 of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Muscat.

The tickets will go on sale via www.t20worldcup.com/tickets at 1900 GST on Monday 11 October.
