Resellers warned from selling match tickets for epic India-Pakistan Asia Cup clash
India and Pakistan will be locking horns in Dubai on August 28.
With the Asia Cup 2022 set to kick off on August 27, all eyes will be on the blockbuster clash between arch-rivals India and Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium on the 28th. What is more interesting is that both teams will be renewing their rivalry at the very same venue where the Men in Green broke their World Cup jinx over the Indian team with a comprehensive 10-wicket win last October.
With the India-Pakistan clash just around the corner, the demand for match tickets has only gone up, but at the same time, it has also been learned that a few fans are trying to make quick money by reselling them. The shocking revelation also states that the fans who had bought tickets at a stipulated amount are now looking to resell them at heavy premium prices.

Asia Cup’s official ticketing partner Platinum List has issued a clear warning stating that the tickets from the resellers will automatically stand canceled. Giving further explanation regarding the same, the Platinum List stated that reselling tickets is illegal according to government regulations.
“Customers are advised not to purchase Platinumlist-branded tickets resold through so-called secondary ticketing websites or online selling sites as it is possible the ticket may not be valid for entry or will be cancelled,” said Platinum List as quoted by Khaleej Times.
“If more than one ticket is purchased by the customer for the same event, then (they should) enter at the same time,” the statement added.
The tickets for the high-voltage India-Pakistan and other Asia Cup 2022 matches went on sale on Monday, August 15. This was officially tweeted by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) a couple of days ago.
The 15th edition of the Asia Cup was forced to be moved to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at the last moment after Sri Lanka refused to host the continental tournament due to the ongoing political and economic tensions in the country.
