Ticket sales for Monday’s Asia Cup 2022 match between India and Pakistan went on sale at 6:00 PM UAE time (7:30 PM IST), selling out in minutes before gaining momentum and increasing numbers. It disappointed some netizens.
Hundreds of attendees took to the social media platform (Twitter) to express their frustration at having to wait hours for their turn to book tickets.
platinum list‘s official ticket sales site posted the following on its website: All other matches are still on sale, so get in line to buy your tickets. ”
Minutes after reservations opened, more than 7,000 fans lined up with a waiting time of about 50 minutes.
“If you’re standing in line, don’t worry, this is set up to give everyone a fair chance to get a ticket,” said Platinum List. “Demand was so high that a fair first-come, first-served purchasing policy was put in place.”
Separate pages have been created to purchase tickets for matches at Dubai Stadium and Sharjah Stadium.
Some had been queuing since around 4:30 am on Monday, only to be informed later in the afternoon that ticket sales would begin at 6:00 pm.
A social media user tried to resell the ticket. One user posted on her Twitter page for Platinum List that she wanted to sell four tickets at a price “slightly higher than the original price.”
The ticket platform quickly responded to him, stating that “ticket resale is strictly prohibited” and will be “voided upon entry”.
Here are some of the reactions:

The Asia Cup Twenty20 was originally scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka, but the island nation’s prevailing political climate forced the Asia Cricket Council to move the venue to the UAE.
It is the second time in the last five years that the United Arab Emirates will host the Asian Cup. In 2018, the 50-over tournament was held in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah from 15th to 28th September.
