ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 England Tickets & Prices
The 2019 World Cup Tickets will be up for grabs from the month of May 2018 and fans who are looking to visit the UK for the competition to follow their favourite teams can buy their tickets online. Here we will explain how to go about buying these World Cup tickets in a hassle-free manner.
For starters, the ICC released the first batch of tickets at 10 am (BST) on Tuesday, May 8, 2018. Till June 1, fans had the chance to register their interest in these tickets in a cricket ballot, or a lottery, and they will be notified of your success or failure in getting these tickets by the end of June 2018.
Yep, so we are close to getting told whether our application for this particular ballot has been a successful one or not.
There have been over one million ticket applicants for the 2019 World Cup and 42 of the 48 matches will need to be balloted – i.e. there has been more demand than there has been supply for these 42 games.
What’s a Cricket Ballot?
It is like a lottery system. You register your interest in buying World Cup tickets for a particular match and if the supply exceeds the demand, you get the tickets anyway. However, in case the demand is more than the supply, then your name goes into a lottery and fans are randomly picked by the computers and sold the tickets.
For matches like the one between India and Pakistan, which will be held on June 16, or Australia v England on June 25, the demand is expected to soar to huge heights and one can expect it to out-strip the supply by multiple times.
Second & Third Round of Ticket Sale
So what happens if you do not get the the tickets in this first round of World Cup ticket sale? Fans will then have a chance to buy these tickets through the public ballot, which will be launched in July 2018.
The pre-registrations for the CWC19 Public Ballot will open on July 17, 2018 and the Public Ballot itself will officially open on August 1. The results for this ballot will be announced on August 29.
There’s a third round of tickets which will go up on sale in September 2018 which won’t be a ballot and it will be anything that remains from the first two rounds. These tickets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis at cricketworldcup.com while fans who want to sell their tickets back to the ICC will be able to do that using a ticket re-sale platform that will be up later.
Cricket World Cup 2019 Tickets Prices
Different matches are priced differently, and there are also differently priced tickets for the same game depending on which stand you are targetting for the game. Child tickets have a lower price while anyone can bring kids below two years for free as long as they aren’t occupying another seat.
The tournament opener between England and South Africa, for instance, is priced at the higher end of the spectrum with the lowest-costing Bronze tickets at £70, while the Platinum ticket costing £235. India’s games against South Africa, Australia and Pakistan and England’s match against Australia are few of the other examples of those higher-end ticket pricing, while there are a few tickets for the Windies v Pakistan and Sri Lanka v Windies games that come at a mere £16.
