Bhubaneswar: While thousands of sports enthusiasts across Odisha were on their toes today to book tickets for the opening ceremony of the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup to be held at Kalinga Athletic Stadium here on November 27, high traffic on the concerned website left many fans disappointed as they were unable to book tickets.

As the clock struck 12 noon (specified time for beginning of ticket sales), many fans tried to book the tickets but in vain as large amount of internet users were attempting to have access to the webpage (http://ticketgenie.in/event/hwc-opening-ceremony) during the particular period of time.

While some lucky fans managed to secure two tickets each, many failed to proceed towards the booking webpage. Minutes later, the website placed the users in a queue system assigning them separate waiting numbers and requesting them to wait till arrival of their turn to book tickets.

However, all the tickets were reportedly sold out within a couple of hours leaving hockey lovers disappointed.

Hockey India said there is a huge demand for tickets for the opening ceremony and consequently, there was a slow down of the website.

The online redemption of the tickets for the opening ceremony will be held from November 22 at Gate 4 of the Kalinga Athletics Stadium along with other locations throughout the city.
