Expect to pay $6,000 if you want to see Pakistan vs India


The highly anticipated ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match between Pakistan and India is just days away. The two arch-rivals will meet at Old Trafford on Sunday and tickets for the match were quick to sell out for the tournament. If you missed and are in the market for a ticket now, expect to pay 1,900 per cent more than the original price. There were half a million ticket applications for the match with Old Trafford having a capacity of 25,000. At the time of sale, the most expensive adult platinum ticket was $300. That price has now risen exponentially.

Fans who were not able to get tickets through the ICC will have to pay a hefty amount if they wish to see the match. A quick scan of a resale website shows that the price of a gold adult ticket has risen to $6,000. Considered the game’s greatest rivalry, Pakistan and India will play each other on June 16 in Manchester. With an expected television audience of over 1 billion, the match is the biggest billing at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The last time the two teams met on English soil, Pakistan took home the ICC Champions Trophy. The Green Shirts who have never beaten India at the World Cup, come into this match requiring a win as they are No.8 on the points table after four matches. Armed security personnel will be deployed in Manchester, as a measure by British authorities to avoid any untoward incident.
