But this is for the first time ever in the history of Online Cricket Ticketing, that the seats of a cricket stadium has been mapped to support theatre – style online ticketing. Thanks to Bookmyshow.com (website), the CCI Stadium in Mumbai (Brabourne Stadium in other words) will have individual seat numbers for all Mumbai Indians matches and it will be ensured that all customers are guided to the allocated seats.
