UAE authorities gives BCCI & ECB approval to permit

The T20 World Cup will be held in the United Arab Emirates in 2021, and fans all over the world are ecstatic that the giant tournament is returning after five years. It is well known that supporters will be present during the IPL 2021 matches in the UAE, and the BCCI and Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) have obtained permission from UAE officials to allow fans to attend the T20 World Cup final.

The high-profile event’s finale will take place in the Dubai International Stadium, and spectators will not want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This is why the BCCI and Emirates Board collaborated to ask the UAE government for approval to allow a capacity audience.

“Both the BCCI and the ECB want a sell-out audience for the final. If authorization for the same was granted while keeping all protocols in mind, the mood would be electrifying. The boards have requested clearance from the authorities and are crossing their fingers,” a source familiar with the situation stated.

Despite the fact that the T20 World Cup is being held in a Gulf country, the BCCI holds the hosting rights, which is why they are working hard to make it a memorable event for fans. According to estimates, the BCCI wants 25,000 people in the stands for the final night. With fans already reserving seats for the IPL 2021 season, the finale night is expected to be a sellout. In the case of the IPL, the fans have been given rigorous COVID-19 restrictions. According to sources, Dubai is allowing fans who have been twice vaccinated and do not require the most recent RT PCR tests.

When it comes to Sharjah, fans must be at least 16 years old and fully vaccinated. Aside from that, they must have the most recent 48-hour genuine RT PCR reports. The rules are nearly the same in Abu Dhabi, save that fans aged 12 to 15 do not need to show proof of immunisation.
