Cricket fans around the world can now book seats to the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 2018 as ticket sales have commenced with just over 10 weeks to go for the much-awaited event in the Caribbean. Tickets will be available online at https://tickets.worldtwenty20.com/
Tickets for all 23 matches available with prices starting from just US$3 for group matches of the 10-team tournament being held in Antigua, Guyana and St Lucia.
CWI CEO Johnny Grave: “We have set the prices so that everyone can come out and see the best women’s cricketers in the world play. This is an invitation to the entire Caribbean to buy tickets and support their world champion team. All the matches will offer not just exciting world-class cricket but entertainment with music and cultural components during the breaks between matches. We have designed the ticketing programme to make sure everyone can be involved as we know cricket is a sociable sport that can be enjoyed by everyone in society, and we want to make sure that everyone across all the Caribbean can be involved in this event.”
Fans will be able to watch the world’s best players during the 9-24 November tournament, which will build on the momentum around women’s cricket after the huge success of last year’s ICC Women’s World Cup that saw more people following the women’s game than ever before. All 23 matches will be broadcast live as reigning world champions the West Indies look to defend their title on home soil. A return to the much-loved traditional cricket atmosphere of the West Indies is at the heart of the event, combining world class cricket with music, entertainment and culture.
Tickets are priced from just US$3 with the focus on ensuring more people across the Caribbean can enjoy the event and support their world champions. The group stage matches in Guyana and Saint Lucia start at just US$3 (or GY $500) and US$4 (or EC$10) respectively. Whilst the semi-finals and finals will be played in Antigua with tickets for the semi-finals starting at just US$7 (or EC$20) and the final at US$11 (or EC$30). A combination ticket package for the semis and final is priced at only US$15 (EC$40).
The first standalone ICC Women’s World T20 event will also see the Decision Review System (DRS) being used for the first time in any ICC World Twenty20 event, ensuring consistency in the use of technology in top world-level events.
