Prices for the final of the second edition of the Pakistan Super League, scheduled to be played in Lahore’s Gadaffi stadium have been announced! The PSL 2017 final is expected to be played in Lahore on March 7 after the entire competition will be hosted in the UAE.
The ticket prices for the Imran Khan enclosure and Fazal Mahmood enclosure of the Gaddafi stadium may be priced around PKR 10,000 – PKR 12,000. The tickets for the general enclosures of the stadium having no chairs may be sold at a starting price of PKR 500. No free passes available.
Sethi confirmed yet again on Monday, the 6th of February that the PSL 2 Final will be hosted at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore despite recent assertions by the FICA that it might not be safe for players to visit Pakistan just yet.
In the case of the distinct possibility that no overseas player decides to travel to Pakistan, the PSL might bring in Pakistan cricketers to feature in the final.
According to PCB’s head of the executive committee, Najam Sethi, the draft draw will be made on which teams make the final and which of the players from those teams refuse to travel to the country to feature in the game.
“We will probably need about five to ten players for Lahore, and those players who would be available from the discarded three teams who can then get picked through this draft for the final.”
Recently, Sethi also confirmed that PSL 3 2018 final will be held in Karachi.
Security of PSL final in Lahore
Some of the things that the PCB have done with respect to ensuring the PSL final can be held in Lahore are:
- Got assurances from Punjab government and security agencies.
- Trying to make a fly-in, fly-out arrangement in order to ensure they don’t spend too much time in the country
- Provide ‘head of state’ level protection for players which includes bullet-proof buses, CCTV monitoring and police escorts throughout their stay.
