Ticket pricing highlights

Tickets to the women’s game continue to be even more accessible, with all individual tickets under $30, and family tickets starting at $43 plus a maximum $7.45 transaction fee ($50.45).
Nick Hockley, Cricket Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, said:
“The 2021-22 summer of international cricket promises to be one of the biggest ever,” Hockley said.
“The anticipation around both the men’s and women’s Ashes is building, especially as we have witnessed some incredible Test cricket in the UK. The Ashes rivalry is one of the biggest in world sport, and we hope that conditions will allow as many fans as possible to attend.”
“In addition to the Ashes, we’re incredibly excited to host international cricket across 11 venues and seven states and territories, ensuring fans all across the country have the opportunity to see the best players in the world.”
“As we did last year, we’ve maintained our entry level ticket pricing to ensure cricket continues to be affordable for fans.
“We continue to work closely with venues and governments across Australia to ensure that events are held safely and greatly appreciate their support.
“In the event that capacities are reduced due to government restrictions associated with the pandemic, we of course guarantee fans full refunds.”
