The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tickets are on sale now

Here's everything you need to know.

With the public phases complete, all remaining tickets for the ICC Cricket World Cup are now on general sale.

Any tickets not snapped up during the highly popular Public and Cricket Family Ballot are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Over 2.5 million tickets were applied for across the summer, for 800,000 available tickets. There are however still a limited number of tickets available for matches across the country.

“The response from fans in England and Wales and around the World has been exceptional,” says ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Managing Director Steve Elworthy. “There are still plenty of great tickets available in the General Sale and my message to fans is to get in early to make sure they are part of this once-in-a-lifetime tournament.”

Any fans who can no longer attend matches will be able to resell tickets on the official platform later this year.

The tournament kicks off on 30 May 2019.

The format for the 2019 competition – the same used in Australia and New Zealand in 1992 – sees the ten best teams in the world go head to head in a round-robin format, resulting in a true world champion.

Building on the overwhelming success of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 and 2017 as well as last year’s ICC Women’s World Cup, it is anticipated that every one of the 48 matches will attract diverse crowds creating a unique atmosphere where every team has home support.

How does the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 work?

Next year’s World Cup will be hosted in England and Wales, and features ten teams in a round robin group stage, followed by the semi-finals and final. The action will take place across eleven venues.

These are:
Cardiff Wales Stadium, Cardiff
Bristol County Ground, Bristol
County Ground Taunton, Taunton
Edgbaston, Birmingham
Hampshire Bowl, Southampton
Headingley, Leeds
Lord’s, London
Old Trafford, Manchester
The Oval, London
The Riverside Durham, Chester-le-Street
Trent Bridge, Nottingham

England will open the tournament at The Oval, taking on South Africa on the 30 May 2019.

Reigning champions Australia kick off their bid for the title on the 1 June against Afghanistan in Bristol.

The semi-finals will take place at Old Trafford in Manchester on 9 July, and at Edgbaston in Birmingham on the 11 July.

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final will take place at Lord’s on Sunday 14 July 2019.

Each of these three matches will have reserve days.
