The Pakistan Cricket Board will be releasing its ticketing policy in the next 24 hours or so. The ticketing process will require people’s CNIC number and B-form number for those below the age of 18 years. It is being reported that each match will accommodate as many as 7500 people.

Sources have revealed that seats will be reserved for each ticket holder with a gap of three seats in between. There will be arrangements for food stalls outside the stadium as well. However, the ticket prices might be a little higher than last year’s, which is quite unfortunate for PSL fans.
