Cricket being the most popular game in India with so much fan following
across the country, one of the biggest challenge faced with cricket associations
is putting a check on black-marketing and faking of cricket match tickets plus
ensuring each spectator’s basic information is properly captured to nullify any
terrorist attack. Rajasthan Cricket Association took an initiative to overcome
these issues by building an online portal (www. where fans
can buy tickets using their credit cards or even online transfer. All the
tickets for ODI matches happening in Jaipur are now sold through this medium,
thus saving a lot on manpower. To make the process more efficient, tickets of
coming matches are sold 21 days before the event which gives fans from across
the country more time to buy them. Multi-level online authentications and
verifications are done to ensure there are no fake or suspicious spectators.
Once a fan buys a ticket, he is sent a RFID card along with it, which he has to
produce along with his photo ID at the venue. This RFID contains captured
information of the spectator. This makes it almost impossible for any
non-authentic ticket holder to enter the stadium. This project has not only
helped in ticketing process but also helped other business like hotel, tourism,
transportation etc. as more spectators from all over country could easily book
tickets via Internet.
