Trouble at MA Aziz
Some of the personnel responsible for controlling entry claimed that over 35,000 spectators got into the stadium, the capacity of which is 25,000.
Member of the ticket distributing committee Omar Goni Chowdhury told The Daily Star that all tickets were sold two days before. “For the last day's matches around 22,000 tickets have been sold,” he said. “The non-ticket holders entered through the gates 1 and 18.”
“We conveyed the matter to the law enforcers,” he said, adding that the committee have nothing to do with ticket checking or gate-keeping.
Some supporters alleged that gate-keeping personnel were admitting non-ticket-holders for Tk 50 or Tk 100.
