Online booking okay, but with riders
If you’re buying tickets online, remember these Government stipulations on online sale of tickets and check the ticket you purchase for these:
– The tickets must be printed in rolls serialised from A to Z, and starting from the number 1.
– All those booking tickets online must be notified of the ticket sale confirmation before the match.
– Each ticket must bear a unique bar code that will serve as a security check while entering Wankhede Stadium and passing through a metal detector.
– You are not allowed to make multiple purchases of tickets at different times. Even if you do, you will be given a maximum of two tickets at the venue on showing valid proofs.
