MCA to write to clubs on unsold World Cup final tickets

Mumbai: With the case of hundreds of unsold tickets of the World Cup final held here on April 2, 2011 still a festering sore for its 330-odd clubs, Mumbai Cricket Association will write to them asking for inputs, if they have any, to solve the mystery.

Over 400 tickets for the India-Sri Lanka final were left unsold though `sold out` notice boards had been put up at the ticket counters, which have prompted the host association MCA to form a four-member special committee to look into the issue.

"We have been asked by the four-member legal panel to write to all the clubs whether they can provide any information on this matter. The deadline given to them is March 15," informed MCA joint secretary Nitin Dalal.

The issue has gathered force of late due to the internal politics of the association, according to sources, and the enquiry into the loss of these unsold tickets, amounting to Rs 78 lakh, is still on nearly two years after the conclusion of the summit contest of the mega event at the Wankhede Stadium.

The matter will figure during the MCA`s AGM scheduled on March 22 where the accounts for 2012-13 will have to be passed, according to sources.
