Hotel Prices Skyrocket In Ahmedabad Ahead Of Ind vs Aus World Cup Final
According to reports, hotel prices have gone up as high as Rs 2 lakh in the top five-star hotels in Gujarat’s Ahmedabad ahead of the cricket World Cup final match between India and Australia, which is scheduled to be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Even non-star hotels have also reportedly increased their rates five to seven times to cash in on the rush.
“There is enthusiasm for the World Cup final not only in India, but people from abroad including places like Dubai, Australia, and South Africa want to come to watch the match,” Narendra Somani, the President of the Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Association of Gujarat, was quoted as saying by the news agency PTI.

“There are 5,000 rooms in three-star and five-star hotels in Ahmedabad, while the number for entire Gujarat is 10,000. The capacity of the Narendra Modi Stadium is over 1.20 lakh people and we expect that 30,000 to 40,000 people will come from outside to watch the match,” he said.
As the demand for hotel rooms is high, their rates are also increasing, he said, adding that the rooms that were available at nominal rates earlier have touched anywhere between Rs 50,000 and Rs 1.25 lakh.
The match at the 1.32-lakh capacity Narendra Modi Stadium is scheduled to start at 2 pm.
