As the preparations for the IPL have begun in full swing, the BCCI is expecting more fans in all four stadiums as well.
The initial call was 25 per cent capacity by the Maharashtra government.
The board is hoping that as the tournament progresses, the government will allow even more spectators.
The government has also given guidelines on the seating capacity as well.
While Wankhede will hold around 9,800-10,000 spectators, nearby Brabourne will be allowing 7-8,000 fans.
For Dr DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, the number of fans allowed is around 11-12,000 and for MCA Stadium in Pune, as many as 12,000 fans will be permitted to watch the matches.
In the recent international series against the West Indies and Sri Lanka, fans thronged in thousands to witness live cricketing action.
This explains why the BCCI is overly excited and want more fans in stadiums.
Even the premier domestic cricket tournament of India, Ranji Trophy saw a successful completion of its league stage.
The knockout phase will commence from May 30 and end on June 26.
Jay Shah thanked all authorities and states for successfully conducting the international as well the domestic tournaments.
For the IPL opener, Shah has invited presidents and secretaries of the state units.
