Summary

  • Colombo – Sri Lanka cricket authorities Sunday rejected claims of discrimination against England fans in the pricing of tickets for an upcoming tour, saying both foreign and local supporters would be charged the same.
  • Sri Lanka Cricket administrative chief Aruna de Silva said the English media had compared the price of tickets in the most expensive enclosure to those in the cheapest open stands.
  • If England fans want to, they are welcome to buy the cheapest tickets,” de Silva told AFP.
  • The company was bundling food and drinks with tickets to the air-conditioned enclosure and charging a premium on the standard rates, but that applied equally to both foreigners and locals, de Silva said.
  • But de Silva said they could not cut prices for foreigners when locals were being charged the full ticket price.
