Ashes tickets fly off the shelves
More than 22,000 tickets for next year’s Investec Ashes Test at Trent Bridge were sold in the first six hours of general availability yesterday.
The ground often provides one of the best atmospheres in the country for Test cricket and that should be the case once again following unprecedented demand registered online.
The upshot is tickets being sold out for the first four days, with some for the fifth still available.
“We have a great tradition of selling out Test matches at Trent Bridge and we are extremely pleased to have handled so many transactions in a single day,” said Nottinghamshire chief executive Lisa Pursehouse.
“We wish to thank all of the ticket buyers for their patience in waiting in line to have their call answered or to get through to our online sales page.
“Our system prioritises those who have been in the queue for the longest and we have processed more transactions today than ever before.
"We have set a new record for the number of tickets sold in a single day and that is testament to the passion of England fans in the East Midlands and the dedication of our ticket office staff.”
