With 100 days to go until the opening matches of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017, excitement is building as fans start to snap up tickets to watch their team in action.
Since tickets went on sale last Wednesday, 8 March, around 3,000 tickets have been sold in the first week for the 31 matches. The most sought after match has been the Final at Lord’s on Sunday 23 July, with total sales now past 10,000. England v India, the opening match in Derby, has been so popular that it is already close to being a sell-out. Hosts England will be banking on strong home support with its games all in popular demand.
There is also a high demand for tickets for the duel between India and Pakistan in Derby. Other top selling matches are, England v Pakistan in Leicester; England v Sri Lanka in Taunton, England v Australia in Bristol; both semi-finals in Bristol and Derby and the final at Lord’s on July 23..
Tournament Director, Steve Elworthy said: “We are pleased with how the first week of sales has gone, giving us a really strong start. Tickets are selling for each of the 31 matches, with some already starting to approach a sell-out. With tickets at affordable prices, fans should buy now to avoid missing out on watching the world’s best players in action.”
The tournament will get underway on Saturday, 24 June as 28 matches will be held over 21 days, including four weekends, meaning more opportunities for fans and families to attend.
