Never Miss an RCB Match Again with This Handy Python Script

The Frustration Every RCB Fan Knows Too Well

As a fervent follower of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the anticipation of watching a live match is unmatched. However, this excitement often comes with a side of frustration — securing tickets. Like many fans, I've found myself poised over my keyboard, refreshing the ticket page endlessly, only to see the dreaded "Sold Out" sign appear. It's a common plight: tickets for RCB matches sell out faster than a Virat Kohli century.

A Blend of Passion: Cricket, Coding, and Automation

As a Data Scientist with a knack for automating everyday tasks, I couldn't help but think there had to be a better way. Why not leverage technology to level the playing field for all RCB fans? With this in mind, I set out to create a solution, marrying my love for cricket with my skills in coding.

Introducing the RCB Tickets Notification Script

The result is a simple yet effective Python script designed to monitor ticket availability for RCB matches. Once set up, it runs in the background, checking the RCB ticket booking page at intervals. The moment tickets for your selected match date become available, the script sends an SMS notification, ensuring you're at the front of the line, every time.

Key Features

  • Automated Monitoring: Continuously checks the RCB ticket booking page for new ticket availability.

  • Instant SMS Alerts: Sends an immediate notification to your phone when tickets are available for your chosen date.

  • Fully Customizable: Easy to set up for your specific needs, whether you're tech-savvy or not.

How It Works

The script is built on Python, utilizing BeautifulSoup for web scraping and the Twilio API for sending SMS messages. It's a testament to the power of automation, demonstrating how a few lines of code can make a significant impact on our daily lives.

Why I'm Sharing This

This project is more than just a personal convenience; it's about community. By sharing this script, I hope to help fellow RCB fans overcome the ticketing challenge, making live cricket more accessible to those who share this passion. The script is open-source, inviting collaboration, improvements, and adaptations to other teams and events.
