Online site earns millions by reselling PSL tickets 5 times



As PSL brings cricket home, the first semi-final match takes place today and the second semi-final match is due to take place on March 21 tomorrow in Lahore, PSL match tickets are illegally resold online in black, as reported by Geo News.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had entered into an agreement with TCS, a private courier company, for the initial sale of tickets in Pakistan. TCS officials reported the case to PCB regarding the illegal resale of tickets online. According to TCS, the Rs. 1,000 ticket from the general compound is on sale on a website for Rs 4,900. While the Hanif Muhammad and Shoaib Muhammad compound tickets are on sale for Rs. 6,050 and pregnant Majid Khan for Rs 10,000.

The payment method is by credit card and TCS officials said all of these tickets are being resold, none of them purchased through official channels. The contact number listed on the website was a UK number and upon calling the number they found it was off.

PSL’s online tickets were available on many official channels including TCS and Yayvo.com. Tickets sold out within 15 hours of going on sale through these channels. TCS had 32 designated TCS Express centers across Karachi and Lahore.

Cricket is the most popular sport in Pakistan. PSL brought cricket home and made cricket fanatics happy. But unfortunately, it also allowed bookies and black market match organizers to do their business illegally through online websites such as this website which resell the tickets.

While technology has made our life easier, surely it has its benefits as you get tickets online while sitting at home. But it also created new ways to illegally cheat on users.

Keeping the negative side of PSL aside, the tournament final will be played at the Karachi National Stadium on March 25. We want our readers to make sure they got it through official channels only. We have attached a photo of a post so our readers will know the official post.

Are you going to watch it live in the stadium? Let us know in the comments below.
