ICC(International Cricket Council) has taken so strong measures in selling World Cup tickets. They are fully committed to take legal actions against any kinds of secondary websites and warned fans not to buy or sell on any kinds of unofficial secondary ticket markets.

ICC enforced strict rules for the ticket selling of the World Cup and bans secondary ticket sites

ICC has counted too much loss from the previous World Cup campaigns. There were lots of tickets from the black markets and they counted enormous loss from various direction. This time they instigated very hard rules and they warned that they will take fresh actions against anyone who will try to buy tickets from the secondary sites.

They strictly monitoring the situation and taking actions from any kinds of attempts to buy tickets from the black market. They are not thinking twice to cancel the tickets which aren’t following the ICC’s “Ticket Terms and Conditions” rules.

ICC World Cup 2019 Managing Director Steve Elworthy said –

In order to increase the presence of more and more genuine fans and overall growth of cricket, we decided to monitor the situation of ticket sales and we want to ensure the policy of fair and affordable ticket pricing which is the top priority for us in this tournament.

Black marketers are trying to sell tickets at a very high price for their benefits. Many people are the victim of their evil policy and buy the tickets. Elworthy also noted that in his speech.

It is very disgraceful act and disappointing to see tickets are selling on secondary websites at a highly inflated price. We are trying to do our best to limit the amounts of secondary sites. The only way fans can guarantee their ticket will be valid is to buy it from the Official Ticket Resale Platform, anyone buys tickets from any unauthorized sources will pay dearly and they will be counted as invalid fans.

ICC has endured enough loss due to secondary sites and black marketing of ticket in the past years. Evil people always want to use the passion of general people. So, this is a great action taken by ICC.
