Edgbaston has received record demand for the England v Pakistan ODI via the Ticket Ballot, with over 60,000 tickets already requested.
Following an unprecedented year of behind-closed-doors cricket, the Club has received record ballot entries for next year’s ODI, more than any other major match fixture including the 2019 Ashes, with a 67% increase in applicants compared to the previous best after the same number of days.
World champions England will host Pakistan in the final match of the three-game ODI series in a day/night fixture on Tuesday 13 July (date subject to change).
Meanwhile, over 60% of tickets have already been sold for this match in the opening priority windows to Warwickshire Members and ticket buyers who accepted credit from our cancelled 2020 Major Matches.
The ballot will close at 5pm on Friday 11 December and the lucky winners will be contacted the following week with details on how to buy.
With a record number of ballot entries and limited number of tickets remaining for this match, the only way to guarantee access to tickets is with Membership, with Edgbaston Priority Club available for only £105.
Alex Perkins, Head of Commercial, said: “We’re delighted with the demand we’ve received for our ODI in 2021 and, without question, demonstrates the desire for fans to return to Edgbaston and watch live cricket again.
“We’ve already seen a large volume of sales in our opening priority windows, with Members and credit holders using the opportunity to snap up tickets before anyone else.
“Membership remains the only way for those who don’t yet have priority to get immediate access to tickets, while we encourage anyone else who wants to attend this fixture in 2021 to enter our ballot before the deadline on Friday.
“The team at Edgbaston have worked extremely hard to make our venue safe and we can’t wait to welcome spectators back next year.”
Discussions about further series are also continuing with the possibility of scheduling additional men’s bilateral cricket in June, including Test cricket. The ECB are also due to confirm details about the planned Sri Lanka IT20 series, scheduled to take place at Edgbaston, in due course.
