(Web Desk) – More than 2.5 million ticket applications have been received for ballot phases for upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup 2019.

According to ICC press release, fans who have applied for tickets during the Public Ballot will be notified through an email about their selection.

Fans who missed the ballot will be prioritised again through a 34-hour window that will open on 10am on September 25 and run until 8pm on the September 26 before the remainder of tickets are made available to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis from 10am BST on September 27.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Managing Director, Steve Elworthy, said: ‘‘The tournament will be the biggest sporting event taking place in England and Wales next summer and the demand for tickets reflects the excitement of the public here and all the fans around the world. We’d urge any fan interested in still attending to not miss out in the General Sale as most matches will then be sold out.”

"We have developed a pricing structure to drive accessibility with U16 tickets from just £6 and adults from as little as £16 as we wanted to make this world-class sporting event experience open to as many fans as possible. The demand for tickets serves to demonstrate the success of this strategy and help us grow the long-term fan base of the game.

“There will be tickets available in General Sale period for at least one game featuring each competing team as well as at least one game at every venue resulting in some really great tickets remaining. We want to ensure that we welcome as many fans as possible to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime tournament.”
