Sri Lanka slash ticket prices to pull in crowds

Feb 21, 2011 5:02:24 AM - yahoo.com
Sri Lanka Cricket has decided to reduce World Cup tickets prices by more than 50 percent for some matches not featuring the host nation to boost crowd numbers. A near capacity crowd of 35,000 turned up to see the 1996 champions thrash Canada on Sunday in Hambantota but officials expect a near empty arena during Pakistan's opening World Cup game against Kenya at the same venue on Wednesday.
