ICC World Cup tickets: How to buy
by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

The ICC have announced that ticket sales for the 2023 World Cup will begin on August 25, and will be carried out in a phase-wise manner. Here’s all you need to know about where you can get tickets for the ICC 2023 World Cup, including the booking process, start time and more.

World Cup 2023: Where will tickets be available?

The BCCI has teamed up with BookMyShow as the ticketing platform for the 2023 World Cup. Tickets for the tournament will be available in phases which are mentioned below.

World Cup 2023: When do ticket sales begin?

Ticket sales will begin on August 25, 2023, and will be carried out in a phase-wise manner until September 15. Before that, fans will have to register themselves on the World Cup site.

However, there’s a catch. Mastercard, ICC’s commercial partner, will have an exclusively designated 24-hour window, meaning users with Mastercard cards will have an exclusive pre-sale window where they can book tickets before others.

While ticket sales will begin on August 25 for the rest of the world, for users with Mastercard credit or debit cards, it will begin on August 24, from 6 pm Indian Standard Time. The percentage of tickets that will be up for sale in the pre-sale window, however, is not yet certain.


World Cup 2023: When and how does the registration happen?

The registration link will be active on August 15, 2023. The registrations can be made here: https://www.cricketworldcup.com/register.

The ticketing sales will then start on the 25th (24th for Mastercard users), in a phase-wise basis.
