Karachi: The National Command Operation Centre (NCOC) has agreed to allow 20 percent crowd for group matches of Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 6, ARY News reported.
According to Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) press release, the decision means around 7,500 ticketed spectators will be allowed access inside the National Stadium per match day, while around 5,500 will be able to attend each match day at the Gaddafi Stadium.
“During the course of the event, the NCOC and the PCB will continue to work together and monitor the situation before a decision to increase crowd numbers for the three playoffs and the final is made,” it added.
The decision was made by the NCOC, following a detailed briefing by the PCB officials in which they assured that the event organisers and the PCB will strictly follow government Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures, including social distancing.
Now, PCB will soon announce its ticketing policy to provide further clarity to the fans on how they can purchase tickets and the process to enter/exit the venues during the matches.
It must be noted that last month, PCB requested NCOC to allow a limited crowd in the upcoming edition of Pakistan’s biggest tournament.
PSL 6 will commence at National Stadium from February 20. Karachi will host 20 matches where Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium will host 14 matches including the knock-out stage and the final on March 22.
