BookMyShow.com has been retained by IPL management to offer tickets to matches of 5 Teams. The online ticketing firm will be official ticketing partner Mumbai Indians, Kings XI Punjab, Rajasthan Royals, Pune Warriors and Delhi Daredevils for the upcoming, 5th season of Indian Premier League (IPL) which is being played from April 4th to May 27th.
User will also get a chance to scrutinize seating arrangement, venue, players’ information, physical ticketing outlets, and track delivery of tickets. Additionally, the site will also offer official team merchandise. Will it stream live coverage too?
BookMyShow has been on aggressive mode lately. Just a while ago it had managed to be the exclusive seller of tickets to Auto Expo in Delhi. It had even attempted to woo the executive crowd with a Blackberry app! Online ticketing has taken off lately. Owing to the convenience it offers, no wonder even film stars have opened their own portals. The portal was even roped in for the earlier season & this time around, BookMyShow will apparently manage the whole ticketing situation.
However, we wonder why not have a single portal for all the teams?
While BookMyShow is official ticketing channel for the five teams, Ticketgenie has has started retailing tickets for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Kolkata Knight Riders and Deccan Chargers home games. These multiple portals must surely confuse game fans. Why not have a single portal where fans can book tickets, and don’t have to go through the trouble of remembering the portal that offers tickets for specific teams.
Do you buy tickets for games online or wait in line at the venue?
