Yet another year comes sprawling with the greatest entertainment for cricket lovers, the Indian Premier League 2021 knocking right around the corner. The tournament is scheduled to begin on the 9th of April, 2021. The matches are to be held across India in six cities, namely Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, and Bengaluru. However, due to the rising COVID cases, public viewing of matches has been prohibited until the situation improves.
However, like every season, there is huge demand and excitement about the matches and the qualifying teams among cricket fans worldwide. Tickets every year get sold out very fast, but the COVID pandemic has jeopardized the fun element to a great extent this year. However, for watching IPL live streaming and for the opening ceremony of the IPL 2021, both online and offline options are available for booking the tickets.
Fans have various options to get their hands on tickets for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. They can now book tickets online on official ticketing partners and portals like Insider.in, BookMyShow, EventsNow, Paytm, and TicketGenie.
All you need to do is visit one of these official websites, select your preferred venue and team, pick on the date you want to watch the live match, and proceed towards payment to confirm your booking.
As offline options, fans can get first-hand copies of tickets from the stadium counter directly. They can even opt for home delivery of the tickets. In that case, they would receive the hard copies of the tickets 3-4 days in advance before the match.
The prices of the tickets for the IPL matches vary from season to season. This year, the 13th Edition of the IPL is being held across nine venues over 54 days. Eight participating teams would be following the double round Robin format to face each other, followed by the playoffs. The prices of tickets would range between INR 340 to INR 8000.
Once bought, you can cancel online tickets, but tickets purchased from the stadium counter are non-cancellable and cannot be refunded. However, if the play gets cancelled due to any unavoidable circumstances, the full price of tickets would be refunded to the ticket-holders.
The Indian Premier League 2021 is back yet again with great enthusiasm and expectations from all eight teams. But what matters most is how this one game unites the entire nation into one single unity while each one gets to enjoy a sensational game of some splendid performances from every sphere of the game of cricket.
