Dubizzle takes down IPL tickets being sold in black

UAE-based online classifieds website Dubizzle has taken down several listings for IPL tickets that were being offered at black for seven times the listed price, reports The National.

The official ticket prices range from AED20-300 (Rs 326-4914), but in black they were being sold for AED1,000-2,000 (Rs 16,383-32,766). The tickets are being sold officially through Ticketmaster.ae. According to reports 100,000 tickets were sold on the first six days, with the matches in Dubai for April 19 and April 25 being the most sought after.


If you search for IPL tickets on Dubizzle you can still see a few listings, but when you open them it says that the listing has been deleted. It then recommends IPL tickets that are being sold on the site at or below the official price. Most of the tickets that were being sold in black are the premium ones as the cheaper tickets are still available via Ticketmaster for most of the matches.

The first stage of IPL is being organised in UAE from April 16-30 as Indian government could not guarantee security, due to the elections. A total of 20 matches will be played in three stadiums in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai.

Dubizzle competes against Expatriates.com another listings website that is popular in Gulf countries and Souq.com. It was acquired by MIH, a subsidiary of Naspers last year after the South African media giant acquired 25% stake in the company in 2011.
