We are just one year away from the start of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. Well, an excitement has already reached its peak, especially in England and Wales for a kickoff of the much-awaited edition of the coveted tournament.
There has already been an incredible response in the first round of ticket ballots owing to gentleman’s game. The demand without a doubt exceeded the expectations. Hence, as a result, 42 of the 48 matches were balloted.
As per expectations, the India-Pakistan match at Old Trafford garnered more applications. The Wembley Stadium is likely going to be jampacked. It is closely followed by the final at iconic Lord’s on 14th July.
Cricket World Cup Manager Director Steve Elworthy was upbeat about the scheduling of the tournament.
“The response has been fantastic, not only domestically in England and Wales, but from fans around the world, which gives us enormous satisfaction as we work towards making this a truly global celebration of cricket,” Elworthy said in ICC’s release.
Expected high demands for tickets in the UK:
“We expected a high demand for tickets, so. We look forward to seeing the excitement continue when the Public Ballot opens later this summer,” he added.
Moreover, fans will get to know whether they are successful or not in the Cricket Family Ballot next week, as per the ICC website. There will be an opportunity to buy the remaining tickets when CWC19 Public Ballot opens at 10h00 (BST) on 1st August 2018.
This will be the first time that tickets will be on general release. The same system will be implemented for the Cricket Family Ballot. The ballot period will see its completion on August 29, 2018.
Every match tickets under any price range will be available in the CWC19 Public Ballot. The limited allocation has been kept for the most popular games.
Tickets for children will be available at £6 while a family of four might go for a selected group of matches for as low as £44. The remaining tickets will then go on general sale on a first come first serve basis.
Meanwhile, hospitality tickets will be available at the distinct venues in England.
