Seems unfair that only 4000 tickets are given to general public for the final

World Cup 2011: Only 4000 tickets to be sold for World Cup final | Cricket News | ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 | ESPN Cricinfo

"On the subject of tickets, Shetty said that the association is limited to offering only 4000 tickets for the final to the general public because it is contractually obligated to offer tickets to the ICC (8500), as well as its member clubs (roughly 20,000). The limited number of tickets was further exacerbated by the renovation, which reduced the capacity of the stadium from 38,000 to 33,000. One thousand tickets for the final will be available online at Kyazoonga from February 21 and the remaining 3000 tickets would be sold through the association."

"When asked whether it was unfair that only 4000 tickets would be sold for a game as important as the World Cup final, Shetty said the members of the clubs are also part of the "public" and so he disagrees with that assertion, but at the same time he also pointed out that the association's hands are tied because it has to honour its contracts."

Pathetic!Given a chance I will watch cricket world cup in other countries...tickets affordable (atleast available), great seating.Here in Bangalore tickets are over priced (as usual). I prefer my TV.

Yeah - I prefer TV too - the only time I went to the stadium was because I got free tickets through a friend & my nephew was keen (and Sehwag was batting on 300* the previous day - the fact he disappointed us by getting out early next day, is another story)

This has been discussed in other threads - especially how it seems to go down and exactly 8:00 AM when tatkal window opens
