Extra World Twenty20 tickets on sale
A new release of tickets to the ICC World Twenty20 in England in 2009 will go on sale at 11am on Thursday, January 29.
These newly available tournament tickets will give cricket fans and families the opportunity to enjoy this summer’s most exciting international tournament being staged at four venues across England: Lord’s, the Brit Oval, Trent Bridge and Taunton.
Beginning on June 5 and finishing on June 21, the two-week World Twenty20 will set a sporting global precedent with the men’s and women’s tournament integrated for the first time.
The semi-final days, which are being hosted at Trent Bridge and the Oval, and the final day at Lord’s will feature the women’s match followed by the men’s.
“We saw unprecedented interest when the first allocation of tickets went on sale in June 2008 with all those match days selling out in hours,” said tournament director Steve Elworthy.
“We welcome the new release of these tickets to fans and I urge cricket spectators and families who missed out on the chance last year to get in early when these tickets go on sale on January 29.”
All prices have been tailored to ensure a value day out for fans and families with 20 of the match-days including two games showcasing four international teams. This double-header format allows spectators to view two games for the price of one match-day ticket.
“Twenty20 is fun, fast and exciting. This year’s tournament brings together the world’s top male and female players in a competition that pits nation against nation and where the top prize is to be crowned the ICC World Twenty20 champions,” said Elworthy.
“This latest ticket offer also gives fans from Associate countries Ireland, Scotland and Netherlands, who qualified after the first ticket launch, a chance to purchase tickets.”
Tickets can be purchased via the ICC website, www.icc-cricket.com. UK-based fans can also call 0844 847 2020 to purchase tickets.
