RCB tickets the most expensive in IPL ahead of 2020 season
RCB fans pay more than anyone else to watch their team in the IPL after the 2020 schedule was announced.
Although fans will not be able to attend matches in the UAE this season, with all matches to be played behind closed doors, tickets were prices at anything between £28.99 and £405.91 to watch Virat Kohli’s team in action - making them by far the most expensive side in the IPL, despite their lack of success in the tournament.
IPL 2020 is set to start on Saturday 19 September when Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings face each other at the Abu Dhabi Stadium, which would have cost fans between £8.43 and £84.34 to watch.
A study by cricket specialists Cricket Bet India has revealed the prices of all T20 tickets around the world, to show which teams have the most expensive and cheapest ticket prices in the biggest T20 tournaments.
RCB will have the most expensive tickets at this season’s IPL, costing a total of £202.93 for the season when purchasing the cheapest ticket available each time, while Kolkata Knight Riders offer the cheapest tickets at £29.54 for the season (£4.22-£73.80 per game), with their first game on September 23rd.
The RCB ticket is actually the most expensive single match price in the world, when comparing against other T20 teams.
But for overall average prices throughout a season, the Vitality Blast in the UK is by far the most expensive.
For a season ticket in the Blast, fans have to pay on average £123 to watch every game, compared to £74 in the Big Bash League and £73 in the IPL - with the BPL and PSL comfortably cheaper.
