Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) started selling tickets for the grand opening ceremony and concert of Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier Leauge (BPL) which will be held on December 8 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. Sheikh Sohel, the chairman of BPL governing council told media that they have started selling tickets for the opening ceremony and concert for 8000 spectators.
But 3000 tickets will be sent to several club officials, former cricketers and government authorities as complementary. It means the BCB will sell only 5000 tickets for the general spectators, he said.
“We are arranging this program for only 8000 people. We are creating a big stage in the outfield which means we are unable to open every gallery for the spectators,” Sohel told the media. He also said that Bangladesh rockstar James will perform in the event along with popstar Momtaz. Besides Bollywood stars Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sonu Nigam and KailashKher will also perform in the event.
