Surge in England ticket sales at Cardiff
Ticket sales for England’s two games at Cardiff this summer have hit a new peak in the aftermath of the World Cup final, with the stadium’s ticket office reporting a high level of demand.
The Ashes winners face both World Cup finalists in Cardiff, with the year’s first npower Test against Sri Lanka starting on May 26, followed by a NatWest Series one-day international versus India on September 16.
To cope with the increased demand from spectators, Cardiff’s ticket office has now extended its opening hours until 6pm on weekdays, with further plans to open on weekends in order to cope with the increased volume.
Glamorgan chief executive Alan Hamer said: “Last weekend’s World Cup final between India and Sri Lanka has certainly caught the attention of the cricketing public.
“We have seen a steady increase in demand during the past few weeks, which has coincided with the knockout stages of the World Cup.
"In particular, following last Saturday’s final, our sales volumes now exceed the levels reported in the week after England retained the Ashes in January and we have extended our ticket office opening hours to meet this surge in demand.”
All price band D tickets for the third day of the Sri Lanka Test, on Saturday 28 May, have sold out, along with all band D tickets for the ODI against India.
Ticket prices start at £25, with all junior ones just £10. They can be purchased online at www.glamorgancricket.com or by calling the ticket office on 02920 419311.
