When can you buy ICC World Cup 2023 tickets?

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is optimistic about making ICC World Cup 2023 tickets available online by August 10.

As per The Indian Express, ticket sales will commence once individual staging associations finalize their pricing.

Following a meeting with state associations in New Delhi, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah emphasized that the ticket sale process would be initiated after due procedures, with each state body required to submit their ticket prices to the Indian board before July 31.

Fans should note that paper tickets will be used for stadium entry during the tournament. To facilitate a smooth experience, physical tickets can be collected from seven to eight designated locations a week before each match. The e-ticket system will first be implemented in bilateral games, as per Shah’s statement to the local media.

To accommodate both BCCI and the International Cricket Council (ICC), the Indian board has requested state associations to reserve a specific quota of tickets. This includes 300 complimentary hospitality tickets per game.

Additionally, the state associations will provide 1295 tickets for league matches and 1355 tickets for India and semi-final games to the ICC. They will also offer 500 general tickets at no cost to the BCCI.

Should the ICC (250 hospitality and 1800 general tickets) and BCCI (300 tickets each in hospitality and general stand tickets) wish to make further purchases, the state associations will be responsible for providing the additional hospitality tickets.

Apart from these allotments, each state association will have the option to buy 40 tickets per game. Meanwhile, the ICC tour partner will acquire 10% of the remaining tickets.

During the meeting, the BCCI emphasized the importance of providing quality food products at reasonable prices within the stadium premises. Additionally, discussions are underway with a renowned beverage company to provide complimentary drinking water at each stadium, in collaboration with Coca-Cola.

The highly anticipated tournament will witness 10 teams battling for the elusive title across 10 venues from October 5 to November 19. The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will host the tournament opener as well as the grand finale.

The Cricket World Cup will follow a round-robin format, with all teams playing against each other in 45 league matches.

The top four teams emerging from the league stage will qualify for the semifinals, scheduled for November 15 in Mumbai and November 16 in Kolkata. Reserve days will be kept for the semifinals and the final to ensure smooth proceedings.
