Searches The highly anticipated Cricket World Cup 2023 has resulted in a 1702% increase in searches for accommodations in Ahmedabad, according to online travel agency Agoda.
This increase can be attributed to the eagerly anticipated India vs. Pakistan game and the championship match, both of which will take place at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. The sporting event has caused a 237% increase in total searches for the host cities across India since it was announced.
While Ahmedabad emerged as the clear fan favourite, search volume increased in the host cities of Dharamshala (347%), Lucknow (225%), Hyderabad (199%), and Pune (169%) as well. In addition, cricket is not only the most watched sport in India, but it also has undeniable appeal for fans around the globe. The UK, USA, Singapore, Australia, and Malaysia are leading the inbound search charts for the host cities around the match dates, indicating that international fans are preparing to watch the thrilling matches live during the 2023 edition.
Agoda Country Director for India, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives Krishna Rathi commented on this pattern by saying, “We are thrilled to see the enthusiasm of cricket fans for the upcoming Cricket World Cup 2023.
