Cricket Australia Sees Record-Breaking Ticket Sales Ahead Of Upcoming Summer Season

Cricket Australia has witnessed an unprecedented demand for tickets for the upcoming 2024-25 summer season, where the Australian team will come against India, Pakistan, and England. The surge in ticket sales marks the biggest opening day of sales outside of a men’s Ashes series in Cricket Australia’s history.

Enthusiasm for the NRMA Insurance Border-Gavaskar Trophy 5 test series saw a remarkable 67% increase compared to the previous record set during the India Test series in 2018-19. Fans wasted no time in securing their seats during the 10-day ‘priority pre-sale,’ where registered users could avail of significant savings on premium tickets by making early purchases.

Traditionally popular fixtures like the Boxing Day Test and the New Year’s Test in Sydney continued to attract fervent interest, with substantial demand also observed for the McGrath Day activities. The Gabba in Brisbane, known for India’s memorable victory in 2020-21, saw strong ticket sales, while the day-night Test in Adelaide experienced exceptional demand in the initial two days of sales.

In a remarkable three-fold increase from the previous season, women’s international matches saw a surge in day one ticket sales, with a historic Test match at the MCG leading the charge.

Joel Morrison, Cricket Australia’s General Manager Events and Operations, expressed his delight at the overwhelming response, stating, “We are thrilled to see such a high number of fans securing their seats on the first day of our pre-sale for what promises to be an incredible summer of cricket, headlined by the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and the Women’s Ashes.”

He added, “Yesterday marked the highest-ever ticket sales for a single day outside of a men’s Ashes series. The demand for prime seats on prestigious match days such as Boxing Day, New Year’s, and the Adelaide day-night Tests is intense, and I encourage fans to secure their tickets promptly.”

Fans still have the opportunity to register for Cricket Australia’s pre-sale, which ends on June 13, allowing access to premium tickets for the NRMA Border-Gavaskar Trophy series, the CommBank Women’s Ashes, and the white ball series against Pakistan men, as well as India and New Zealand women.

For those seeking the ultimate experience, the Sports Lounge ticket at Perth Stadium, priced at $166 during the priority pre-sale, will be available for $195 during the general public sale.
