The 2024 T20 World Cup, which is co-hosted between the United States and West Indies, has been marred by low attendance. This raises concerns ahead of the highly anticipated India vs Pakistan game scheduled for June 9th.

The tournament’s opening games though, notably India’s against Ireland had been less full to capacity. For this reason, fans and analysts have blamed high ticket prices and ICCs approach to marketing.

During the India-Ireland match on premium stands where tickets cost $1,000 remained empty. Although there are no accurate official figures available regarding the number of spectators who attended, it is estimated that only 20 thousand people were present at the venue.

Attendees voiced dissatisfaction with the quality of facilities provided concerning how much they paid as entry fees for this event. Similar worries have also persisted about Pakistan against the USA taking place on June 6 with overpriced tickets still in stock.

This is all about an expected match between India and Pakistan set for 9th June. The ICC may need to address fan discontentment and better stadium arrangements in New York City. It appears that there are concerns at senior-level management of ICC over declining attendance. In contrast to the few crowds witnessed so far, cricket enthusiasts across continents are waiting eagerly for this big battle.

The last time these two teams met was at Narendra Modi Stadium in India during World Cup 2023, boasting attendance figures between 90,000 and 100,000.
