Emirates Cricket Board could accept IPL fans into the stadium
As the time is coming soon for the second leg of the IPL that is to be happening in September, the Emirates Cricket Board seems to become liberal for the fans. The fans of cricket were much welcome this good news. The ECB is trying hard to get the permissions so the spectators can enjoy the game live instead of watching it on screens.
The first leg was played amid the second wave of Coronavirus; therefore, the spectators were not allowed in the stadiums. Although due to the high rate of increasing cases, the matches were canceled, and it was decided that a second leg would be continued to determine the winner. Now this news has brought an optimistic hope for fans to experience the game in the stadium.
The ECB official said that they would be discussing the matter with ICC for the requirements of spectators. This decision would not be coming into effect before discussing the plan with the BCCI. They also spoke about having a team of highly experienced companies that handles events with logistics which will take on managing this event for the best of the players and spectators.
Certainly, stadiums would not be jam-packed with fans, but at least 50% profit is estimated to come from this tournament. Almost 31 matches will be played in UAE, and the ECB seems to be ready to welcome the people who can come.
After this tournament, the BCCI would host the T20 World Cup in association with the ECB. If the people would be able to attend IPL in-stadium, it is expected that the ICC tournament of October would be a hit with spectators in their awaited seats as well.
