The opening ceremony and opening match of the second season will take place on February 9 in Dubai. The Q-Tickets website is the official online ticketing partner for the event. Tickets to the matches of all the franchises will be made available on this website. Tickets can also be booked over phone using the telephone numbers mentioned on website.
The PSL tickets price for the opening PSL game between Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators that will be played in Dubai after the opening ceremony has taken place have been priced between 30 & 250 AED. The General Admission tickets are the most economical at 30 AED for that opening game while the international stand, premium west stand, premium east stand and the platinum stands will cost 50, 100, 100 and 250 AED respectively.
The next two days will see double-headers played in Dubai and for those double-headers, tickets can be bought from anywhere between 40 and 275 AED while there’s just one game on February 12 and the PSL ticket price ranges between 20 and 220 AED for that day.
Once the action moves to Sharjah, the rates are similar with minor differences. For instance the first encounter at that ground on February 15 will cost a fan anywhere between 20 and 150 AED (with an option to purchase a Diamond Box pass for 600 AED with catering included in it) but a Thursday night match is sold for 30 AED as the base price for the North Stand. On days of double-headers in Sharjah, the range changes to 40-200 AED with the Diamond Box marked at 800 AED.
During the playoffs, the first two matches will be played in Sharjah and the cost of a ticket for each game is pegged at a minimum of 40 AED. Other tickets are priced 60, 100, 150 and 200 AED with the Diamond Box cost of 800 AED. The third playoffs game will be held at Dubai and again, the range is slightly different – 40-250 AED – while the cost of a ticket for the PSL Final is yet to be released.
Apart from the online sale, tickets can also be bought on match days from stadium counters a month before the matches begin. However, it is suggested to book the tickets in advance to ensure you have a seat booked for this great spectacle.
The tournament will be hosted by United Arab Emirates, with matches being played in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium. The crowd turnout for the first season was pretty decent, especially considering that there weren’t any particular local fans of the franchises. But the quality of the games and players made it a promising event, and the numbers in the stands are sure to increase this season.
Peshawar Zalmi finished on top of the table with 12 points, while Quetta Gladiators came second owing to a slightly inferior net run rate. The other two teams to qualify for the playoffs were Islamabad United at the third place and Karachi Kings at the fourth.
Since then, the team rosters have changed, with all the five teams set to bring out their big guns. Lahore Qalandars, who finished last in the table, have got Brendon McCullum, Jason Roy and Sunil Narine in their overseas lot, while the defending champions have Shane Watson, Andre Russell, Misbah-ul-Haq and more.
Legends like Chris Gayle and Kumar Sangakkara will be playing for Karachi Kings, while the Zalmi boasts of Tilakaratne Dilshan, Shahid Afridi and Darren Sammy.
With such a talented pool of players, watching the action live in stadium is going to be a brilliant experience. Make sure you book your PSL 2017 tickets as soon as possible using the links above.
