Oct 12, 2021: To give a welcome boost to cricket and sports fans, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided to make more tickets available for all the men’s T20 World Cup 2021 games, which will be available in Oman and the United Arab Emirates from October 11.
The matches will be played in the UAE from Oct 17 to November 14. The ICC said in a statement that additional T20 World Cup tickets were on sale from October 11 at 1900GST via www.t20worldcup.com/tickets.
Head of Events at the ICC Chris Tetley said, “We know Oman and the UAE are packed with sports fans from all 16 nations competing at the event, so we’re delighted to be able to release more tickets for all games.”
“The expat community in the region means every team can enjoy home support and with tickets from just 10 OMR and 30 AED, we hope to see stands full of passionate cricket fans cheering their team on. Demand is always incredibly high for tickets to ICC events, so I’d urge fans to be patient and we look forward to welcoming them to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021,” he added.
He also said it is important that fans buy tickets only from official ICC site as they could not be guaranteed attendance if they have tickets purchased from third party sites.
“We will cancel tickets we identify as being resold, meaning fans would have wasted their money on an invalid ticket that won’t get them into the game.”
Tickets went on sale last week, with thousands being snapped up in record time, however there are now more tickets available for games across all four venues; Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Muscat. The prices are starting at just 10 OMR and 30 AED in Oman and the UAE respectively.
The tournament kicks off with a round 1 match between Oman and Papua New Guinea in Muscat. Australia and South Africa play the first match of the Super 12s on 23 October in Abu Dhabi, followed by the replay of the 2016 final between England and the West Indies the same day in Dubai.
One of the most awaited contest is between India and Pakistan, and will take place on 24 October in Dubai.
The ICC says all fans wishing to attend matches must follow all COVID-19 protocols.
