Tickets for two of India’s T20 World Cup 2024 matches are being sold at more than twice the original rate in resale websites, such as StubHub and SeatGeek.

The ICC T20 World Cup is little less than three months away but the noise around the marquee India vs Pakistan clash has already generated quite the buzz. With anticipation mounting for the mother of all battles set to land on US shores, skyrocketing ticket prices in the States have left people on edge.

According to a report in USA Today, tickets for two of India’s matches, one against Pakistan on June 9 in New York and the other against Canada on June 15 in Florida, both already sold out, are now available at more than double their original price – some reaching as high as INR 1.86 crore – on resale platforms like StubHub and SeatGeek.

According to the ICC website link facilitating the sale of tickets in the first phase, the minimum price of a ticket was INR 497, while the most expensive ticket was INR 33,148 without taxes. The apex body had mentioned that “no additional fees will be imposed beyond the specified taxes”.

However, on these resale websites, prices of VIP tickets were offered close to ₹33.15 lakh. And if the platform fee is to be added, the total swells to somewhere around ₹41.44 lakh. On StubHub, the cheapest ticket for the match between India and Pakistan is ₹1.04 lakh, whereas on SeatGeek, the most expensive ticket for the same is for ₹1.86 crore, including the platform fee.

Tickets prices more than thrice of INDO-PAK World Cup 2023?

This is more than thrice the price of the highest-priced ticket in the secondary market for the match between India and Pakistan at the 2023 ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Viagogo, which claims to be the “world’s largest secondary marketplace for tickets to live events”, had displayed the most expensive ticket for the game at ₹57.15 lakh.

Phase 1 of the ticket sales for the 2024 T20 World Cup kicked off on February 22, following a public ballot window, where tickets for limited matches were be made available for sale on a first come, first served basis. In just about 10 days time, these tickets have made their way into the resale market, where increased demand for them, especially for the blockbuster clash between India and Pakistan, led to prices exploding, reaching a level that could rival the NBA or Major League Baseball.
