The new season will start this Saturday with a match between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Chennai Super Kings at Mumbais Wankhede Stadium. For the first time since the 2019 season, fans in India will be able to watch IPL matches live at the stadiums.
Keeping in mind the COVID-19 pandemic, BCCI has allotted all league games of the season to Mumbai and Pune. Four venues, namely Brabourne Stadium, Wankhede Stadium, MCA Stadium and DY Patil Stadium, will host the IPL matches.
The government has allowed 25% seating capacity for the opening games of the tournament. They will consider increasing the seating capacity in view of the situation of Kovid-19 in Maharashtra.
Spectators 18 or older must produce their COVID-19 vaccination certificate before entering the stadium. Children two years of age or older must have their own ticket.
The entry gates will open about two and a half hours before the start of the match. The afternoon matches will begin at 3:30 PM IST, while the evening games will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
