BookMyShow To Sell Tickets For IPL 3; What Happened To TicketPro.in?

Only 8 days to go for the start of the Indian Premier League, and online ticketing website BookmyShow.com has announced that they are the exclusive ticketing partner for the Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab and official online ticketing Partner for Delhi Daredevils. Tickets can be booked online, through a mobile app, WAP.

If you’ve ever been for a Cricket match, you’ll know that the seating is all quite arbitrary and disorganized. BookMyShow, borrowing a concept from films, is allowing customers to choose seats for the Mumbai Indians matches in CCI Stadium in Mumbai. Bulk booking facility and home delivery of the tickets is also being provided. The delivery status can be tracked online, and the sale of the entire inventory of tickets will be recorded real time and the franchisee teams will be able to access them.

Not The Only One; What Happened To TicketPro?

It’s all quite confusing, frankly: Ticketgenie.in also powers the ticketing option in the official IPL Site; at first glance it looked like a site entirely dedicated to IPL ticketing, but they are also selling tickets for the Hockey World Cup currently underway in Delhi. The site also offers tickets of matches of all the teams besides Chennai Super Kings and all the venues besides Chennai. A courier service for home delivery of the ticket at an additional cost of Rs 60.

Nikhil adds: So what happened to TicketPro.in? In 2008, TicketPro had announced a “long term deal” with the IPL, yet it’s website now redirects to an international website. Have the Indian operations folded up? The site was soft-launched with two sold-out concerts, in Mumbai and in Bangalore, for Bryan Adams in February 2006, and I remember booking tickets for an Iron Maiden gig a couple of years ago.
