England cricket tickets
As far as the 2019 Cricket World Cup goes, tickets sold incredibly quickly. The ICC will be launching an official resale site, but in the meantime you can buy tickets here.
England’s Test cricket grounds
Rather than having a small number of grounds for Test cricket, as Australia does, England has a larger number and awards Tests after a bidding process. As the criteria are heavily weighted towards financial returns, this has a knock-on effect on ticket prices, as grounds awarded a Test need to recoup their losses.
Another downside of this system is that the money that the ECB earns from ticket sales is ploughed back into a greater number of grounds. With only a proportion being used for international cricket in a given summer, this money is effectively wasted. English grounds are thus smaller than Australian ones and ticket prices much higher.
The full list of England’s Test cricket grounds is as follows:
- Lord’s in London
- The Oval in London
- Old Trafford in Manchester
- Edgbaston in Birmingham
- Headingley in Leeds
- Trent Bridge in Nottingham
- Riverside in Chester-le-Street
- Sophia Gardens in Cardiff
