Ballot for Headingley Ashes tickets
In view of high demand from the general public, Yorkshire have established an online ballot system to decide the destiny of the few remaining tickets for the fourth npower Ashes Test at Headingley Carnegie.
The online ballot will open on Monday December 1. Those wishing to enter will be asked to fill in a form on Yorkshire CCC’s official website.
The form will be available any time up to January 31, 2009, when the ballot will close.
The club have taken the decision in order to cater for those who had waited for tickets to go on general sale on December 1.
The first draw will take place during February and successful applicants will be notified of the outcome.
In the event that further seats become available for any reason further draws may be held and unsuccessful ballot entrants will automatically be entered into these.
Please note only one application per person is permitted and multiple ballot entries will be void.
Each applicant will be able to apply for up to four tickets per day on the ballot form.
However, in order to give all applicants a better chance of securing tickets, this maximum allocation may be revised down to two tickets per person per day by the club, depending on the number of people who enter the ballot.
Applications will not be accepted over the telephone or in person under any circumstances.
To avoid disappointment, interested parties should not come to the ground or telephone the club on December 1.
If people do not have access to a computer or would prefer not to apply online, please send a stamped-addressed envelope to:
The Marketing Department
Yorkshire County Cricket Club
Headingley Carnegie Cricket Ground
The club will send a form in the post. Please return this form to enter the ballot.
Australia play England at Headingley Carnegie between Friday August 7 to Tuesday August 11, 2009.
