Yes. You heard it right. The price of tickets for the FIFA U-17 World Cup final in Kolkata on October 28 will be less than Rs 50 as disclosed on Sunday by the local organisers. The minimum ticket price of the final or any other match will be Rs 48. Tickets of Rs 96 and 192 are also available.
“You can actually see a World Cup final in less than 50 rupees, when you’re buying it for 10 matches. It’s amazing. We will open the venue packages initially. Effectively for the 10 matches in Kolkata, not individual matches,”said Javier Ceppi, the tournament director of the local organising committee at a media interaction.
The FIFA U-17 World Cup will be held across six cities from October 6-28.
