The forthcoming ICC senior women’s Twenty20 (T20) World Cup, scheduled to be played in South Africa, is now only 30 days away from its inception and the ICC has announced ticket pricing for the mega ICC event that’ll run from the 10th to the 26th of February.
It is understood from an ICC media release that 30,000 tickets will be available at 30 (R) South Africa Rand across the three host venues, to mark the countdown.
The tournament will see games, played at Boland Park, St George’s Park, and Newlands Cricket Ground. The three stadiums will have not only top-quality cricket on display but also top South African artists performing at prominent matches, DJs on the decks, giveaways, and more to look out for.
An ICC media release conveys that the tickets are available at ticket offices at Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town, Boland Park in Paarl, and St George’s Park in Gqeberha and online. Fans are encouraged to secure their seats for this exclusive promotion, which will be running across limited seating areas.
South African women’s team skipper, Dane van Niekerk, said, “There is a real buzz in the air for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, it is starting to feel very real now. It’s not often that you get to watch premium cricket at such a price, especially with some of the world’s best cricketers on show. Being a Gqeberha local, I know the experience and atmosphere is going to be electric, fans are going to be in for a treat on and off the field.”
ICC Head of Events, Chris Tetley, said, “It is so exciting that we are only 30 days away until the start of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup when the best cricketers from around the world will compete for the ultimate prize in T20 cricket. The entertaining vibe and activities planned for spectators at matches are not to be missed, so I urge all fans to take advantage of the promotion and be a part of a World Cup before tickets sell out.”
The 10-team tournament sees teams divided into two groups (as briefed below). Each team in their group is scheduled to play all the others once and the top two from each of the two groups will advance to the semi-finals.
Group 1: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh
