Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium General Information and Ticket Procedure

Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium (also spelled as Firoz Shah Kotla Stadium) is a feast for the eyes for every cricket fan in Delhi. The stadium is present at Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, Delhi near the Firoz Shah Kotla Fort. The stadium was built in 1883, and it is the second oldest cricket ground in India after Eden Gardens Cricket stadium, Kolkata. It was continuously renovated which has kept the stadium up to the standards and its sitting area has also increased in the process to accommodate the huge amount of spectators and it has seating capacity for around 45,000 fans. The stadium has seen the growth and it hosts a large number of matches every year with so many cricket matches being played every year. With the introduction of IPL and World T20 in the recent years, it has seen a sudden increase in the matches played. IInd ODI cricket between India and New Zealand will be played here on 20 October 2016 as a part of 5 One Day International match series.

Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium

It is the only international cricket stadium in New Delhi which hosts the matches of all the cricket formats, such as Test, One Day International, Twenty- 20, IPL (Indian Premier League), domestic and Ranji matches. This stadium has seen few of the greatest moments in cricket history, as it witnessed Indian Spinner Anil Kumble’s 10 wickets haul against Pakistan. The match between India and Pakistan was held in Ferozshah Kotla Cricket Ground in February 1999 when Kumble delivered his magic spells and took all the ten wickets of opposition in the fourth inning of the match, and he also became the second man to achieve the feat after Jim Laker. It also saw Sachin Tendulkar’s 35th century by which he surpassed Sunil Gavaskar’s record of highest centuries.

I got to visit this stadium in the WT20 match which was held between England and Sri Lanka, it was one of the deciding games where only the winner gets to stay in the challenge.

Ticket Booking Procedure and Parking Facility

Ticket booking for India New Zealand Second ODI has been started through Bookmyshow.com and price range is 500-10000 Rs. Tickets are available only in online, our one user posted in the comments that he went to Kotla stadium counter for ticket bookings and the guard told him that the ticket can be booked only in online mode. No offline sale is available.


This part of the chase was rather easy; you can book the tickets online by visiting bookmyshow.com and select the desired match and venue. The tickets are available by online modes only and there are no counters in the stadium premises, may be to avoid the extra rush which may be hard to manage for the stadium management. You have to carry the printout of the online tickets and get the entry pass at the Bookmyshow Box office. The box office pickup address for IPL tickets is Bookmyshow, building no. 4250/2, street no. 2, Ansari Road, Daryaganj , Delhi – 110002, Landmark – Adjacent to Vijaya Bank.

Location of Bookmyshow Ticketing Box Office

Box office is located in the very dense area, so finding a place to park your vehicle is really a tough task. I would suggest that you opt for public transport. Parking facility is also not good near the stadium, and the traffic comes to halt when the match finishes.


Nearest metro station is ITO near the box office pick, ITO metro station just 300 Meters away. The stadium is very near to the ticket pickup point; within 1 km to each other and the nearest metro station for both the locations are ITO, Pragati Maidan and Mandi House which are around 2-3 km away. You can either take a bus or book cab to reach box office or stadium from the metro station. The Sri Lanka vs South Africa world T20 match is scheduled to be played at this stadium on 28 march 2016. Only pride is at stake in this match as both the teams are already of the world cup championship. First Semifinal of ICC World T20, 2016 between New Zealand vs England was played at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium on 30th March.

Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium Check in Procedure and Guidelines

Let’s focus on few guidelines which will help you, if you are planning to visit the stadium for any upcoming match. After collecting the entry pass, check the gate number which is printed on the tickets and head towards the gate number to enter the stadium. Please avoid carrying any items other than the wallet and mobile phone. Most items are not allowed inside the stadium, and the same would be asked to deposit at the security checking counters with no guaranty of return which was informed at the entry gates. Some of the restricted items are Coins, headphones, power bank, data cables, water bottles and any type of eatable or drinkable, digital cameras, binoculars, plastic carry bags etc. Baby food, diapers, and flags are allowed, though. I lost the headphones in the process and I was lucky that I didn’t bring any valuable which could have stopped me from entering the stadium. Also on the official website of DDCA, there is no information available regarding the general guidelines to be followed while visiting the stadium.

Stadium Facilities

Once you enter the stadium, you will be dependent on various facilities provided by the stadium management. It somewhere lags in the Basic facilities, as the toilets were really in bad condition during the WT20 match between Sri Lanka and England. We were sitting in the Hill A South East Stand, and the view was hindered by the glass which is fitted as a security measure, between the spectators and the ground. So for a clear view, please avoid this stand as it could reduce the excitement of the match. The food provided there was on a bit expensive side, as everything is sold at a price higher than the MRP. Water costs 10rs per 300 ml glass, and soft drink will cost you 50 RS for 450 ml glass. Pan Pizza could also be bought at a price of 150 and 200 rs. Kulcha is priced at 80 rs. Overall the food is little expensive but not too heavy on your pockets.

  19. Vijay Kumar Kirar October 17, 2016 at 12:47

    I am totally surprised that this time no venue is fixed to buy the ticket offline. I there are a huge many people /students who are not able to book online ticket due one or other reasons. So you must let me know that how can I get offline ticket of the second ODI between India and Newzealand which is going to be held on 20th of the october. Please reply me as soon as possible.

    • India OnGo October 17, 2016 at 13:50

One user of the site went to stadium for offline booking of tickets and guards told him that offline tickets are not available. You have to purchase online tickets. I am just providing information regarding the tickets and not associated with the tickets sale in any way. Thank you for Writing.
