Pakistan West Indies match tickets sold out

With a day left before the teams start arriving here in Jamaica for March 11 start of cricket’s showpiece event - the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup - Local Organising Committee (LOC) still face logistical problems, with accreditation centres in Trelawny and Sabina Park yet to be opened to public.

The LOC executive director, Robert Bryan, said public access to the centres was delayed due to IT infrastructural problems as these were not yet fully equipped.

Telecommunications company, Cable & Wireless plc and regional suppliers, GL Events, working in tandem on IT component, are trying to sort out issues.

There were logistical problems with GL Events, which led to few temporary delays in overlay of fit-outs, but will be resolved soon.

There are also delays in putting in turnstiles and some IT infrastructure at venues.

Bryan said the April 24 semifinal game to be hosted by Jamaica and West Indies versus Pakistan match tickets have officially been sold out.

Though not every single ticket has yet been bought, he also said the Opening Ceremony tickets have been sold out. There is 15 percent growth in ticket sales with overall 48-49 percent tickets for matches in Jamaica sold.

The teams will start arriving in Jamaica on Thursday (today), with India to be first. Kenya and the Netherlands are expected in on Friday (tomorrow). All the teams would be present for a bat signing ceremony here in Jamaica on March 7.
