IPL 2021 to resume from Sept. 19: Fans allowed into stadiums in limited capacity

September 16, 2021

Limited spectators will be allowed into the stadiums when the much-awaited Indian Premier League (IPL) resumes in the UAE this weekend, the event’s organisers announced yesterday.

The IPL, which was suspended midway in May due to COVID-19 cases in its bio bubble, will resume from Sept. 19 with Defending Champions Mumbai Indians (MI) taking on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

“This match will be a momentous occasion as IPL will welcome the fans back to the stadiums after a brief hiatus owing to COVID-19 situation,” an IPL statement said.

“Matches will be played at Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi with limited seating available keeping in mind the COVID protocols and UAE Government regulations,” it added.

It will be the first time since 2019 that the IPL will be played in front of an audience.

Last year, the League was played behind closed doors in the UAE while the first half of the 2021 edition was also played inside a strict bio-bubble.

Although the League organisers did not specify the exact number of fans who would be let in, sources said their presence would be 50 percent of the stadium capacity.

“Fans can buy tickets starting September 16 for the remainder of the tournament on the official website www.iplt20.com. Tickets can also be purchased on PlatinumList.net,” the League organisers said.
