Top ICC CWC 2007 Tickets On Sale Again From Tomorrow
A final batch of tickets to the hottest ICC Cricket World Cup matches has become available and will go on sale to the public worldwide from tomorrow morning.
These tickets to the ICC CWC 2007 Final in Barbados and the two Semi-Finals in Jamaica and Saint Lucia are returns from CWC’s commercial programmes – Tour & Travel and Hospitality packages – as well as some from sponsors. They will be available for purchase online (www.cricketworldcup.com) and at the nine ICC CWC 2007 Official Ticket Centres in the Host Venues from 9 a.m. Eastern Caribbean time (GMT -4 hrs).
For the much-anticipated Final, Category 1 and a few Category 2 tickets are available while there are tickets in Categories 1, 2 and 3 for both Semi-Finals. The latter matches will pit the top four teams in the ongoing Super 8 series battling for a coveted spot in the grand showdown come April 28.
There are also a few Party Stand tickets to the Saint Lucia Semi-Final on April 25 which will feature the top Super 8 team versus the team that finishes fourth in the second phase of the tournament. The second and third-placed Super 8 teams will clash at Sabina Park in Jamaica on April 24 to determine the first finalist.
“This tournament is reaching an exciting stage now as we enter the second part of the Super 8s. A lot of teams are still in with a strong chance of making the top four and global interest is high,” said ICC CWC 2007 Commercial Director, Stephen Price.
“We are sure that the news of more tickets being available, through Public Ticketing, for the top games will be greeted enthusiastically. Fans have continued to flood CWC’s office with enquiries about tickets for these big matches. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, especially for regional spectators, and to ensure everyone has a fair chance of getting these tickets, CWC and the Local Organising Committees (LOCs) have decided to open all Ticket Centres tomorrow.
“Some Ticket Centres had already closed as CWC matches in various venues have already concluded. However, because of this situation, they will all be open for one day to facilitate purchases by Caribbean nationals.”
From Wednesday, however, only Ticket Centres in Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica and Saint Lucia will still be selling tickets.
“CWC Ticket Centres stay open for about a week after matches finish in their respective territories and therefore after tomorrow, these are the ones which will be in operation.
“Those in St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Vincent & the Grenadines and Trinidad & Tobago – all of which had already closed – will reopen just for tomorrow and finally close thereafter,” explained Price, urging fans to come out and support the historic Event.
He reminded that the limit of four tickets per person per match would still be in effect.
