Select ICC Champions Trophy tickets to go on sale from October 27

IANS  |  Dubai 

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday announced that the remaining tickets of the 2017 Champions Trophy will go on general sale from October 27.

Fans across 60 countries have already applied for 4,17,000 tickets during the application period which ran during September, an release said.

The remaining tickets will be up for sale in October for the June 1-18 tournament to hosted by England next year.

There was a high demand for India-Pakistan, England-Australia and the final match, along with the opening fixture between England and Bangladesh and India's match against South Africa.

As many as 11 matches out of 15 were oversubscribed in at least one price.

Commenting on the development, Chief Executive, David Richardson, said in the release: "This is superb response from cricket fans not just in the UK but from around the world. To see 11 of the 15 matches oversubscribed shows the popularity of the game and Champions Trophy format where every single match counts.

"I am delighted that this many tickets have been sold so far out from the tournament, it means we can now focus on selling the remaining tickets and creating the best possible atmosphere at every game," he added.

While five matches will not go back on general sale, additional tickets are expected to become available later following the return of any that are not required by tournament stakeholders.

There will also be a resale function from February 2017 for fans to sell any unwanted tickets at face value to other fans.

Steve Elworthy, Tournament Director of Champions Trophy 2017, said: "We are delighted with the great response we have had from fans wanting to be part of the tournament next summer. With availability for 10 matches, including England and India fixtures, people still have the chance to buy tickets to watch the world's best teams in what promises to deliver exciting cricket."
