IPL 8 2015 Tickets Information




The eighth edition of the Indian Premier League is upon us. It also comes at the perfect time following the ICC 50 Overs' World Cup, regarded as the most important event in the world of cricket. Unlike the seventh edition that had been staged partially in the United Arab Emirates because of the assembly elections, the entire tournament this time will be held in India. This also means all the fans will be able to watch the games of their favourite teams. Having said that, nothing beats the excitement of being there on the ground and sharing the joys and disappointments of your team with other people in the stadium, and this is the reason why there will be a high demand for tickets.

How to Book Tickets



There was a time when people would go to stadiums days before the game, and only the lucky ones would get the tickets. Most of the times, they had to satisfy themselves by catching the game on television. However, those days are over now. With the advent of internet, it has become easy to buy tickets without breaking any sweat at all.

There are several bases on which one can book the tickets. The tickets can be booked on the basis of a particular venue also. You might be living in Bengaluru, and you might want to catch as many games as you can at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. Alternatively, you may also want to attend all the home games of your favourite team. So your bookings can now be done accordingly.

It could also happen that you may want to catch all the games on weekends at a venue nearest to you, so you can now book as per that specific requirement also. The most obvious way one can get tickets for a game is through the official website of the tournament. However, there are some other options as well.

Tickets on BookMyShow



In case you are a fan of Mumbai Indians, Delhi Daredevils or Kings XI Punjab, you can get their tickets on BookMyShow. Kings XI Punjab was the runner-up in the 2014 tournament and is easily one of the teams that enjoy a substantial amount of fan-following. This season they are supposed to play three home games at Pune, and they have already put the tickets for these encounters on sale. It is expected that for these games the minimum price of tickets is INR 500. The minimum price for seats in the hospitality boxes is INR 3,500 and this includes all the taxes applicable.

Why Watch This Year's IPL?



The tournament will feature some of the biggest names in the world of cricket, as always. There will be the Indian players who will be out to prove that their success in the recent World Cup was no flash in the pan, and then there would be former Indian national team regulars like Yuvraj and Harbhajan who will be eager to prove that they are not finished yet. So, in all it is going to be an experience that cannot be missed at any cost.
