Without the authentic vehicle pass no one can enter inside the stadium. The issue was raised when the event management group issued the passes to the media person.

While the Hockey India has been issued 150 accredited media cards to different media houses for the promotion of the sports of hockey. The department has been allowed only 50 passes against150 accredited media cards.

In the accredited media cards it is clearly mention that the entry gate no will be 4 and 9. But new guidelines says Media-parson will access the venue through Gate no 9 only with vehicle pass.
