(9th August 2012) : The Sri Lanka Premier League inaugural edition is about to start from tomorrow(10) after the gala opening ceremony that is going to take place in Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium.
However, this opening ceremony is invitees only and the public is not given the opportunity to attend even by purchasing some form of a ticket. This approach for the opening ceremony has created dissapointment among the people who eagerly waited till the SLPL launch and it has got even more worse since there wont be any live coverage taking place either.
Tickets for SLPL
Details about purchasing tickets for the matches or details of tickets has not yet been announced and the SLPL Secretary office's Mr.Karan Mehtha said that the tickets will be available from today(09). But we couldn't find any reliable source or a venue to buy tickets for this highly anticipated event.
Complementary tickets and the invitations for the matches were given out starting from last Monday(06), but the cricket loving public seems to be neglected and ignored by the SLPL governing body.
The first set of matches will be starting off on 1th Saturday, with the first match between Ruhuna Royals vs Neganahira Nagas at 4.00PM.
