Anyone else get their application for 2012 ODI and 2013 Ashes tickets today from DCCC?
any idea how much it will be?
For non members its £55 for the ODI and £75 a day for the test. Never known a game go on sale this early. Was going to start saving up but might have to get a loan now.
Wow I never expected tickets to go on sale almost 2 years before the game
How much for members? (he says in the hope he can befriend a member)
£70 a ticket is vastly overpriced.
I'm a Durham member if that's what you mean or do you have to be a member of England or summat? I'll be getting tickets for me and Matty but if I'm allowed more then I'll let you know. Haven't received anything in the post about it yet though.
astonishing they can sell tickets 2 years in advance, when most of the venues haven't been decided
According to some people down at the Riverside yesterday, apparently the dates can also be changed (not sure if they've even been set yet anyway).
Its 2 years away but may buy some, can you apply online?
Cheers mate, that would be spot on.
Until the 3rd June it's only members (and members buying for friends) who can buy and it looks as though it's only via the application form they sent out. After that it's open until the end of Sept for anyone who has previously bought tickets at Durham (prices at a minimum of £75) and then from October 1st it general sale.
FWIW I think it's expensive and unnecessarily early to be buying the Test tickets. What makes it worse is the fact you don't know when it is so are effectively buying blind when selecting Day 1, Day 2 etc. especially if you are trying to get specific days (e.g. the weekend).
You can get up to 5 non-member tickets for the ODI at £55 (£50 for members) and up to three for the Test at £75 (£70 for members).
Do you think it will still sell out at those prices?
I signed up for this England TwelfthMan and get emails asking to buy International tickets all the time.
Not sure if it will work for the Ashes though.
75 quid for something you may not even be able to get to just sounds ridiculous.
However if a Durham Member is kind enough to help me out I would still like some tickets
Going to the same way as football, Sky are pumping fortunes in the game through the tv deal yet prices still going up and up
I do however fail to see how being a Durham member gives me more right to buy a ticket to watch the national side
Ridiculous pricing from the ECB again. I got tickets for the Brisbane test when Harmy bowled that wide for £18 each. Shocking.
Pardon my French but they can piss off.
If that extra money is going to youth development, giving the game a presence in state schools etc I can just about stomach it. I would hate to think it's just going on spiralling wages like football.
