One lakh women bought ICC World Cup 2019 tickets: ICC
World cricket’s governing body International Cricket Council reported that more than one lakh tickets for the ICC 2019 World Cup have been bought by women.
ICC World Cup 2019 tournament director Steve Elworthy, on Monday, further said, around two lakhs of people will come to watch the action for the first time during the course of the mega event.
“This has been one of the biggest cricket ballots we have run and the results have been incredible. We have seen more than 110,000 women buying tickets, we have 100,000 under-16s coming to witness and experience the World Cup,”
“We have over 200,000 people coming to cricket for the first time. The picture that really resonates with me, when we talk about inspiring the next generation is Anya Shrubsole looking over the fence at Lord’s as a youngster who was then a key member of England winning the World Cup in 2017.
“That is what we want the match-day experience to be for our youngsters,” he said.
“The tournament is expected to break new ground in a number of different areas. There were more than three million ticket applications, with some individual games receiving as many as 400,000 applications,” said the ICC in a release.
The showpiece event will kick start on May 30 with hosts England take on South Africa.
A number of 48 matches are to be held on the course of the ICC World Cup 2019 among ten participating teams.
