But once you have booked it, you have it right there in front of you the moment you log in. However, there were certain fans that preferred the old match pass cards, so the plastic cards sales were retained.

The app will have videos, news, match schedules, etc. added to the existing features. The app also provides the users a chance to vote for the “Man of the Match” of the game.

The company plans to add an extra feature with the help of which the users, along with their tickets, can book for food and beverages as well.
