Empty Seats Force Bengaluru to Cut IPL Ticket Prices

Among the eight Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises, tickets of Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) home games at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium were the costliest, and that has reflected in the empty seats at the venue this season and now forced price revision.

RCB have five home games left this season and to make sure more fans come to stadium to watch those matches, the Chinnaswamy Stadium has decided to drastically reduce ticket prices for two of its premium stands - The Times of India has reported.

The authorities have turned the D-Corporate stand into a non-hospitality stand, while prices in the Fan Terrace-N stand have also been cut by around 50 per cent.

Tickets in the two premium stands will go down from Rs. 6,000-7,000 to Rs 2,000-4,000 depending on whether the games are played on weekdays or weekends, the TOI learnt from an RCB spokesperson..

The Fan Terrace will continue to be a hospitality stand serving unlimited food, beverages and alcohol.

The 32,000-capacity stadium has seen certain sections of the ground not filling up, which has forced this move from the authorities. However, some of the experts believe its a burnout effect of the ICC World Twenty20 and the little gap between that and IPL-9.
