ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday confirmed that the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has allowed 20 per cent crowd to attend the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021, which will be played in Karachi and Lahore from February 20 to March 22.
The decision means around 7,500 ticketed spectators will be allowed access inside the National Stadium per match day, while around 5,500 will be able to attend each match day at the Gaddafi Stadium, said a press release issue by the PCB.
The NCOC and the PCB will monitor the situation during the event before a decision to increase crowd numbers for the three playoffs and the final is made.
The NCOC made the decision following a detailed and comprehensive briefing by the PCB officials, in which they assured that the event organisers and the PCB will strictly follow government’s Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures, including social distancing.
Now that the NCOC has supported crowd attendances for the PSL 2021, the PCB will soon announce its ticketing policy to provide further clarity to the fans on how they can purchase tickets and the process to enter/exit the venues during the matches.
