The International Cricket Council (ICC) have launched online ticket sales for the Cricket World Cup semi-finals and final today, pharmacy February 21, and via the ICC’s official ticketing partner Kyazoonga.com
With the demand for tickets for the finale of the ICC’s flagship tournament expected to reach record levels, cough there is sure to be great demand for the proportion of online tickets which will go on sale today at 1pm Indian time (0730 GMT).
Haroon Lorgat, the ICC Chief Executive, said: “From the outset it was always going to be near impossible to satisfy the enormous demand for tickets. But the Central Organising Committee always wanted to provide as many cricket lovers as possible with an opportunity to experience the World Cup. That is why some tickets are now being made available online.
“With the tournament kicking off amidst extraordinary scenes in Dhaka, it was quite amazing to see tens of thousands of passionate supporters in the streets around the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium soaking up the remarkable atmosphere during the opening ceremony and the first match. All this excitement is causing an unbelievable demand for tickets which clearly outstrips the available supply.
“I am sure that the passion and support for the ICC’s flagship event will grow even further by the time we reach the semi-finals in Colombo and Mohali on 29 and 30 March, respectively and the final at Wankhede Stadium on 2 April. The on-line sales will be followed by a second phase where tickets will be made available to the general public through the stadium box offices.”
