It was 10 in the morning when the sports-lovers were supposed to shout for BPL tickets. And there are four booths around the city were installed to provide the tickets.
But people, better to say the crazy sports-lover, were not so patient to wait for that moment. They do start gathering from the night before. They hardly want to miss tickets. When it was 10 O’clock in the next morning the city dwellers are surprised to see the crowd in the city.
All the aspirants gather at the door of Sylhet District Stadium arena. Most of them were young.
Initially, BCB, the guardian body of the tournament issued a media release that tickets will be available via online, UCB branches and stadium booth.
However, when candidates appeared at the bank, they find the door closed for tickets. The main of the event BCB informed that tickets will not be purchased from UCB bank. Then, there remained only one option for the ticket-seekers. They all moved to Sylhet District Stadium booth.
“Thousands of people were assembled in front of the Sylhet district stadium with lines going several kilometers in distance,” says a ticket-seeker.
People suffered a lot, but merely complained because at the end of the day they could kiss on their tickets. On the other hand, the authority is extremely happy to see the response.
“We are overwhelmed that thousands of people gathered in the booths for the ticket, and we had to refrain the ticket franchise to sell more than one ticket to a single person”, Shafiul Alam Nadel, director of BCB said to the media.
