Fans can now plan their year, with ticket pricing for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 announced today. The focus is firmly on families and communities in what will be a massive year for cricket.
Children’s tickets are available for every match including the Finals. Tickets are $5 for children and from $20 for adults across men’s First Round and Super 12 matches, consistent with accessible pricing for women’s tickets, which went on sale earlier this year, meaning that a family of four can attend matches in both the women’s and men’s events from just $50.
More than one million fans are expected to attend the global showpiece event for cricket’s fastest growing format to be played in Australia for the first time. In another first, ICC T20 World Cup will be played as two standalone events in the same country, in the same year.
The event is fast approaching, with the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 less than seven months away. The 10 best teams will battle it out for world champion status from 21 February – 8 March 2020.
Allan Border Field in Brisbane will host a week of lead in games from February 15-20 featuring six countries, with defending champions Australia to meet the West Indies on Saturday February 15.
Later in the year, 16 teams will contest the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 from 18 October – 15 November 2020.
The Gabba will play host to four matches featuring Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, England, Afghanistan and a still to be announced qualifier.
The Brisbane games will be highlighted by a blockbuster double header on Saturday October 31 where New Zealand and Pakistan will meet, followed by Australia and the group’s qualifier, which could possibly be Sri Lanka.
Both the women’s and men’s Finals will be played at the biggest cricket stadium in the world, the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). This presents an opportunity to set a new world record for attendance at a women’s sporting fixture on Sunday 8 March 2020, International Women’s Day.
Tickets are now on sale to the women’s event and go on general sale to the men’s event on 18 October 2019. All fans who buy tickets to the women’s event will automatically qualify for a presale for the men’s event, as will fans who register for men’s tickets at t20worldcup.com.
Fans can secure their place to men’s matches immediately through hospitality and travel programs, which go on sale today through t20worldcuphospitality.com.
World Cup 2020 Local Organising Committee CEO, Nick Hockley, said: “Passionate fans from around the world were a highlight of the recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and it is such an exciting prospect that both the women’s and men’s T20 World Cups are coming to Australia next year.
“2020 is a year when fans across Australia and around the world can be part of not just one, but two World Cups, and now fans have the opportunity to plan their full year.
“We have made sure that tickets to all matches are accessibly priced, so that families, friends and communities can come together to support their teams and celebrate these major world events.
“Fans can buy any combination of tickets and with hospitality and travel packages also launched today, fans across the world have the options and flexibility to build their own T20 World Cup experience.
“With its world-class venues, wonderful host cities, its passionate, knowledgeable and diverse fans, having two T20 World Cups in 2020 is an opportunity for Australia to give the warmest of welcomes to fans from around the world and inspire the next generation with the fastest growing and most accessible format of the game.”
Fixtures for the women’s and men’s events were announced earlier this year, and women’s tickets went on sale at t20worldcup.com in February.
