Tickets Available Starting August 25
The long-awaited tickets for the 2023 ODI World Cup, set to take place in India, will finally be available for purchase on August 25. This announcement comes just over 40 days before the tournament’s opening match on October 5. The ICC shared this update shortly after unveiling the revised World Cup schedule, which included date changes for nine games, including the much-anticipated India vs Pakistan clash.
Phased Ticket Sales Approach
Ticket sales will follow a phased approach to ensure a fair and organized process. The first phase, beginning on August 25, will cover tickets for all matches not involving the Indian cricket team. Following this, there will be a six-phase sale for matches featuring the Indian team, spanning their warm-up games and matches in the main event.
Ticket Sale Phases:
- August 25: Warm-up and World Cup matches not featuring India
- August 30: India warm-up matches in Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram
- August 31: India World Cup matches in Chennai, Delhi, and Pune
- September 1: India World Cup matches in Dharamsala, Lucknow, and Mumbai
- September 2: India World Cup matches in Kolkata and Bengaluru
- September 3: India World Cup match in Ahmedabad

ICC’s Call to Fans

Unprecedented Delay and Comparisons
The delay in announcing the ticket sales schedule and final tournament plan is uncommon for a World Cup. For instance, tickets for the 2019 ODI World Cup in England and Wales were available for purchase in September 2018, and a fresh sale took place in March 2019 due to high demand. The tournament kicked off 70 days later on May 30, 2019.
