Ashes Tickets On Sale Date Announced
Cricket Australia today confirmed that tickets to the 2017-18 international cricket season will go on sale to the general public from 8 May and members of the Australian Cricket Family (ACF) will be given priority access from 1 May. Tickets to matches in Perth will be on sale at a later date once the venue has been confirmed.
Fans who wish to take advantage of the ACF priority access period are encouraged to sign up at www.cricket.com.au/ashes before 23 April. Membership is free.
Fans can catch a slice of the Ashes action for the first time in four years from $30 for adults, $10 for kids and $65 for families, the same entry-level prices as the season just gone. Full prices for this summer are available at www.cricket.com.au/tickets.
The upcoming international season will feature the first ever day-night Ashes Test, in Adelaide, five One Day Internationals, and a T20 trans-Tasman tri-series with England and New Zealand.
In addition, this year will also see the 10th anniversary of the Pink Test in Sydney, with Day three to be a very special celebration of this outstanding partnership with the McGrath Foundation.
“An Ashes series is always highly anticipated by our fans and the 2017-18 season is set to be the biggest yet – you could call it the decider, because after 69 series over 135 years, it is 32 series wins each. It means we are very happy to be placing tickets to this event on sale so early,” said Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland.
“There will be high demand for these tickets, and we are very aware of those who try to take advantage of the system and scalp tickets at inflated prices. Our message to fans is to sign up to the ACF, get in early, and only purchase from official ticket agencies to ensure you only pay the official prices.
“We are sure that people around the country will make the most of this opportunity to come and witness our proudest sporting contest when it returns to Australia this summer,” concluded Mr Sutherland.
Groups of 10 or more can purchase tickets for the 2017-18 season now, with hospitality and Cricket Australia Travel Office packages also currently available. Further information about these offers can be found at www.cricket.com.au/ashes.
The Australian Women’s Cricket Team will be taking on England in the Commonwealth Bank Women’s Ashes Series prior to the men’s series, with the first match to be played on 22 October 2017. Ticketing and broadcast details for this series will be announced in due course.
