Edgbaston Stadium has confirmed early sell outs for two of its biggest fixtures in the 2022 cricketing summer following a record number of entries for its Ballot.

As part of a seven-day programme of men’s major match cricket, the current allocation of tickets for England’s Royal London International versus India, on Saturday 9 July, and Vitality Blast Finals Day, on Saturday 16 July, have both sold out.

A further allocation of tickets will be available at a later date once the pitch placements have been confirmed for 2022.

Hospitality remains available for both games, and an allocation of tickets will also be released for the supporters of the four teams that reach Vitality Blast Finals Day, once the quarter final stages have concluded.

Days one, two and three of England’s LV= Insurance Test Match versus South Africa are also on the verge of selling out, with Edgbaston hosting the second Test of the three-match series from Thursday 25 to Monday 29 August.

“Interest in our biggest cricket match days continues to grow substantially year-on-year,” said Sales & Marketing Director, Alex Perkins.

“We’ve seen games sell out quicker than ever in last summer’s major match programme and more than 45,000 people entered the 2022 Ballot, which represents an 82 per cent increase on our previous highest number of entries.

“In the coming weeks, in partnership with the ECB, we will also reveal the programme of domestic cricket at Edgbaston, including Warwickshire’s defence of the LV= Insurance County Championship, Birmingham Bears’ Vitality Blast campaign and the programme of Birmingham Phoenix home games in the second edition of The Hundred.”

Remaining tickets for England’s LV= Insurance men’s Test match versus South Africa will be released on general sale at 10am on Tuesday 19 October.

In addition to the seven-day men’s Major Match programme, Edgbaston also hosts eight days of women’s T20 cricket in the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, between 29 July and 7 August. All tickets for Birmingham 2022 are managed through the Games direct.
