Further tickets released for Investec Ashes Test at Edgbaston following initial sell-out
Cricket fans will have a second opportunity to get their hands on tickets for this summer’s 3rd Investec Ashes Test Match, between England and Australia, after Edgbaston Stadium confirmed that more tickets will be released from 10am on Monday 2 March.
Tickets for Days 2, 3 and 4 of the 3rd Investec Ashes Test Match – which is staged in Birmingham from Wednesday 29 July to Sunday 2 August – had initially sold out. However, a limited number of tickets will be released for all days following a return from sponsors and confirmation of the sight screen position.
Gareth Roberts, Commercial Director at Warwickshire County Cricket Club, said:
Some of the seats that go on-sale on Monday are located directly behind the bowlers’ arm with a perfect view of the action; we always release these seats later following confirmation of the position of the pitch and the resulting sightscreen.
“England against Australia is the greatest rivalry in Test cricket and the demand that we’ve seen for this match has exceeded what we saw in 2009 when Edgbaston last hosted an Ashes Test.
We’re very excited to again host one of the biggest matches in world cricket and see the return of Test Match cricket at Edgbaston, after a three-year absence.
To purchase tickets for the 3rd Investec Ashes Test Match at Edgbaston, simply visit www.edgbaston.com or call 0844 847 1902 from 10am on Monday 2 March.
Edgbaston is set to host England in an Investec Test Match every year until at least 2019, following the England & Wales Cricket Board’s major match announcement in December last year. The allocation also confirmed that Edgbaston will host a semi-final and four group games of the prestigious ICC Champions Trophy in 2017 and the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019.
