The ISL 2016 storm has swept away all Kerala Blasters fans and the anticipation to witness the finals is at its peak after the stupendous and dramatic win of the team against Delhi Dynamos. The match being played at Kochi makes it even more special. Blasters, co-owned by Sachin Tendulkar, will take on Atletico de Kolkata on Sunday in the final match of the Indian Super League season 3 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kaloor, Kochi.
This enthusiasm among the fans could be one of the reasons that ‘all the tickets’ got sold. The online ticket sale for the match started on December 7, but all the tickets got sold by next day morning itself. Online portals had to reissue fresh tickets, however, even those got over in no time. Fans from various parts of the state who had come to purchase the tickets and watch their favourite team performing had to go back disappointed as the tickets counters at Kaloor stadium also remained closed.
Sanjai Basheer, a Kerala blaster fan says, “I was really excited to watch the finals. But I could not get the tickets despite trying for days. I have tried all possible contacts to get a ticket but, now I understand why all efforts were vain as tickets are being sold in black.”
