Excitement for The Hundred is building, and everyone’s invited. Tickets are selling fast for cricket at its fastest, intense best.
The first priority ticket window is now open and excitement levels for The Hundred have never been higher.
More than 100,000 tickets have been sold in total within the first 24 hours since the window opened on 12 February, alongside tickets purchased during the MCC and county member window. Tickets for the Men’s Finals Day at Lord’s proved extremely popular, with the initial allocation sold out – more tickets will be available in general sale at a later date.
Only a few hundred tickets remain for the opening match of The Hundred Men’s Competition, with Oval Invincibles taking on Welsh Fire at The Kia Oval on Friday 17 July. Tickets for that fixture alongside every other game are still available until the priority window closes on 28 February.
Tickets for 6-15 year olds remain on sale for just £5 for any game. Around a fifth of tickets sold so far have been bought for under-16s as The Hundred appeals to younger, broader audiences alongside existing fans. Over two-thirds of tickets have been bought by under 45-year-olds.
The Hundred’s Managing Director Sanjay Patel said; “We are pleased the competition has been met so positively by sports fans. Our ambition is always to grow cricket and bring new audiences into the game.
“Our priority will now be in managing the strong demand for tickets alongside our desire to see large numbers of young families attending. Despite a busy summer sport schedule, The Hundred is clearly being viewed as an unmissable summer event.’’
To buy tickets, register with The Hundred and you’ll be able to access priority tickets until 28 February!
