What privileges does the Golden ticket for World Cup 2023 give to its holders?
The ODI World Cup 2023 is just a few days away as the mega event is all set to get underway in India from October 05. The excitement for the cricketing extravaganza is at its highest with the fans eagerly waiting for their favourite cricketers to light-up the event with their marvellous performances. Ahead of the quadrennial event, BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) is presenting golden tickets to several eminent personalities of the country to make their World Cup watching experience a memorable one.
So far, the secretary of the BCCI, Jay Shah, has presented the golden tickets to legendary actors Amitabh Bachchan and Rajnikanth. Apart from the dynamic duo from the movie industry, former India cricketer and World Cup 2011 winner, Sachin Tendulkar has been also given the golden ticket.

What are the perks of having a Golden Ticket for World Cup 2023?
However, the fans are wondering what is a golden ticket and what privileges does it give to the ticket holders? The golden ticket is being presented to the national icons under ‘Golden Ticket for Golden Icons’ programme. The ticket will reportedly give access to its holders to all 48 matches of the tournament from ground zero. The accreditation card and the ticket mentions that the person is BCCI’s guest and hence will get a VIP treatment at the stadium.
Notably, the BCCI has been facing a lot of flak from the fans due to the late announcement of the schedule for the World Cup and making further changes to it. The ticket booking experience also hasn’t been a memorable one for the fans as they’ve found several glitches on the booking site and have had to wait for hours in the virtual queue.
Hence, the cricket board is leaving no stone unturned to promote the event by honouring the renowned personalities of the country with the golden ticket. Earlier, on Wednesday, September 20, the ICC (International Cricket Council) unveiled the official anthem of the World Cup 2023 ‘Dil Jashn Bole’ featuring actor Ranveer Singh, Dhanashree Verma, Gaurav Taneja, Be Younick and several other popular figures. The energetic song celebrates the euphoria of the World Cup in India calling it a festival for the fans.
