2019 World Cup

Fixtures announced along with ticket prices.

I was thinking of going to the Eng v WI at Southampton - then I saw the prices. Four ticket categories for every match, Premium, Gold, Silver Bronze. For this match it is 195, 125, 95, 55.

For the really high profile games (eg Eng v SA in opening match) in the group stage it is 235, 150, 115, 70.

Tickets for the Final priced at 395, 295, 195, 95.

I'm guessing most of the Premiums will be snapped up by the Corporates as no one is really likely to pay that. But this just smacks of utter greed by the ICC - it will be interesting to see how many tickets are bought and whether we see a change in policy nearer the event.

It's a fleecing alright.

My ticket to the 1979 World Cup Final cost 2.50 - that was for 'juvenile, ground admission'. I believe the adult price was a fiver. And we potentially got 20 more overs for our money in those days.

I went to Eng v SA in 1999 at the Oval, so the exact same opener here. I think I paid no more than 50 for my ticket which was probably now the equivalent of 115.

Prices don't seem that inconsistent at the lower end and middle to Ashes tickets.

I'm mulling over whether to go to the bangladesh v afghanistan game, which is likely to be a dead rubber, if it doesnt sell out at the rose bowl. (What's this hampshire bowl rubbish?!)

However, i may be put off by the almost inevitable ott restrictions as to what one will be allowed to take in food and drink wise. (Likely almost nothing)

The demand for tickets for certain matches will be far less though, I'd imagine. I can't help but feel that the main objective for the ICC with World Cups is to make as much money as possible rather than the competition itself.

Poetry.

'The point is this. A cricket ground - any cricket ground - is a living, breathing miracle, a testament to the sweat and patience of the dozens who tend to it now, and the idealism of hundreds and thousands who went before them. So too the cricket pitch, an organism borne of nature but which could never exist naturally, subject to any one of a million kaleidoscopic variables that will fundamentally alter how a cricket ball behaves on contact with it. And so too cricket itself, a game so delicate it can be destroyed by a spot of rain, and yet resilient enough to thrive on every continent on Earth, to survive wars and upheaval and the long slow plod of time.'

If they could replicate that pitch for an Ashes Test they'd get my vote.

Curious really. I bought a "Gold" ticket to England v Australia in the Champions Trophy last year for 50.

And I have a similar ticket to the ODI in Cardiff this year for 80. It's not cheap but it's the same two teams at half the price for a World Cup match.

I think my admittance to the inaugural 1975 semi-final (Eng v Aus) was included in my Yorkshire membership. It was shortish game thanks to Gary Gilmore.

Tickets started at $5 for Kids and $20 for adults to attend a World Cup game in NZ in 2015. I think the Semi Final I went to at Eden Park was around $100-150 per ticket (50-75 quid)

That always used to confuse me - why would The Adverts write a song about a cricketers eyes ?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who always made that connection.
