Edgbaston Stadium has confirmed its fastest sell-out of tickets for a bilateral men’s One-Day International (ODI) for at least 10 years with all tickets for next summer’s Royal London International fixture between men’s world Champions England and Pakistan now sold out.

Taking place on Tuesday 13 July, England’s ODI with Pakistan is the second major match day at Edgbaston to sell out in 2021, after Vitality Blast Finals Day on Saturday 18 September.

Tickets were initially sold through priority windows for Warwickshire Members and for supporters who purchased tickets in 2020 and decided to leave the value of their tickets as a credit rather than a refund. Winners of the ticket ballot then snapped up the remaining tickets from 10am yesterday morning.

Alex Perkins, Head of Commercial, said: “We’ve not known a bilateral series ODI at Edgbaston sell out before Christmas for many years, so we’re thrilled at the response to this match, which highlights the appetite for live sporting events in 2021.

“We recognise that such high demand for this ODI has left a lot of cricket fans disappointed by missing out on tickets. However, early in the New Year we hope to have the early season international schedule confirmed, including further details on England’s men’s T20 International versus Sri Lanka and/or the potential of Test cricket at Edgbaston.”

In addition to the international schedule, early in the New Year Warwickshire CCC will reveal the full programme of domestic cricket and Birmingham Phoenix men’s and women’s team fixtures in The Hundred.

Edgbaston has also today launched a Ticket Exchange re-sale platform for ticket holders who have purchased tickets for a major match at Edgbaston and are unable to attend. The re-sale platform allows ticket holders to resell their tickets at face value to other genuine fans.
