2015 World Cup Travel & Ticket Packages Announced
Travel packages and ticket prices for the 2015 World Cup, which will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, have been announced by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Packages which include match tickets, accommodation, transport and more are now available for fans to buy and UK fans are advised to check the ICC travel site on a regular basis (www.icc-travel.net).
Individual tickets will go on sale on 14th February 2014, exactly one year before the tournament gets underway but fans can register their interest for tickets that will go on pre-sale by visiting www.cricketworldcup.com.
Ticket prices have been fixed at the same price whether matches are in Australia or New Zealand. For most matches, child prices begin at $5 (£3), adults can get tickets for pool matches from $20 (£12) which means a family of four can attend from just £30.
Selected matches will also provide dedicated family zones which will be designated as alcohol-free zones.
The tournament begins with England taking on Australia on 14th February 2015 with 49 matches in total being played over 44 days across 14 host cities. The final is in Melbourne on 29th March.
Tickets for the opening match will range from £25 to £90.
ICC Travel has partnered with UK travel agents Gullivers Sports Travel, Howzat Travel Ltd, Sports Tours Plus, The Cricket Tour Company, Thomson Sport, The Sporting Travel and Austravel.
"The two countries are hosting the tournament for the first time since 1992 and over time it has become one of the biggest sporting events in the world," ICC Chief Executive John Harden said.
"We expect thousands of visitors, especially from India who are the current world champions and from the UK and South Africa to support their sides.
"We’re operating on a first come, first served basis so international fans are encouraged to register their interest now."
ICC Travel Managing Director, Noel Magnay, added: "ICC Travel is delighted to be operating the official travel programme for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand. As two of the top touring destinations in world sports this will be an event not to be missed.
"ICC Travel has developed a range of packages with the ultimate aim of making the highest standard of international cricket available to as broad a live viewing audience as possible."
