England came up against Ireland in this year's ICC World Twenty20, although the match fell victim to the weather

Tickets for next summer’s one-day international between England and Ireland will go on sale from Saturday.

England will travel to Dublin on August 25 2011, with the match serving as preparation for the subsequent NatWest Series against India.

Adult tickets can be purchased for €40, while accompanied children under the age of 16 can gain access for €14.

There are also family and club deals on offer as well as significant discounts for OAP's and school groups.

Cricket Ireland CEO Warren Deutrom said: “Following the huge success of the RSA Challenge between Ireland and Australia back in June, we hope that Ireland playing England in Dublin will continue to raise the growing profile of cricket in this country, and that the Irish public will get behind our boys as they challenge one of the world’s great cricket teams, in what is certain to be a fantastic cricketing occasion.”

England’s last ODI against Ireland was held in Belfast last year and ended in a narrow three-run triumph for the visitors.

The two teams are also due to meet in the World Cup at Bangalore on March 2.

Ireland captain Will Porterfield added: "Obviously it’s going to be another fantastic occasion, not just for the team, but for all Irish supporters.

“The compact surroundings of Clontarf are sure to provide a wonderful atmosphere yet again, and I'm sure the tickets will sell out quickly. Hopefully the weather gods will be kind to us, and it should be a super day out for everyone."

Tickets for the game at Clontarf go on sale at Ticketmaster ( on Saturday morning at 10am.
