Earlier in May, the sale of online general tickets for the Pool matches of Hockey Men's World Cup was launched for which the pricing stood at Rs 200 (East Stand), Rs 100 (North Stand) and Rs 100 (South Stand).

The organisers have greeted hockey enthusiasts from around the world with good news by launching the sale of online tickets for the Knockout Stages of the competition which include the semi-finals and final as well as the 3rd/4th classification match, said a release.
