World Cup 2023 breaks 2015 attendance record

  • World Cup 2023, hosted by BCCI, breaks attendance records with 1,250,307 fans, surpassing the 2015 edition co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
  • Indian cricket enthusiasts play a pivotal role in making WC23 the most attended ICC event, embracing the tournament across diverse venues.
  • Australia emerges victorious in the final at Narendra Modi Stadium, securing their sixth ODI World Cup trophy, while India falls short of a third title.

In a groundbreaking announcement on Tuesday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) disclosed that the recently concluded World Cup 2023, hosted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has achieved unparalleled attendance figures, establishing itself as the most attended ICC event in history.

The six-week extravaganza witnessed an astonishing influx of 1,250,307 enthusiastic fans, shattering the previous record held by the 2015 World Cup, co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, which drew a crowd of 1,016,420.

Notably, the surge in attendance can be attributed to the fervent support of Indian cricket lovers, who passionately embraced the tournament from the stands. The World Cup 2023 unfolded across various iconic cricketing venues, including the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala, and the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, among others.

The grand finale unfolded at the Narendra Modi Stadium, where cricketing giants India and Australia clashed in a highly anticipated battle for supremacy. Under the captaincy of Pat Cummins, Australia clinched their sixth ODI World Cup trophy, leaving Indian fans yearning for their team’s third ODI World Cup title. The disappointment was palpable as India fell short of the championship, having last secured an ICC trophy in 2013.

The diversity of hosting cities added a unique flavor to the tournament, with matches being played in iconic venues such as the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow, the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, and the historic Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

The resounding success of the World Cup 2023 not only underscored the global appeal of cricket but also marked a historic moment in the annals of ICC events, with India’s cricketing passion taking center stage on the world platform.
