ECB Chief Executive David Collier said England are preparing for a huge summer of cricket at home in 2013.

The prospect of England defending the Ashes on home soil, the world’s top eight teams competing in the ICC Champions Trophy, and a full program of 50-Over and T20 International cricket will provide rich pickings for cricket fans next summer," he said.

Aussie fans wanting to guarantee their ticket to the Ashes 2013 should contact the Cricket Australia Travel Office or phone 1300 133 232, who have official travel packages and fully escorted tours to every Ashes Test. 

Ticket scalpers, or touts, are very common in the UK, and Cricket Australia suggests buying your tickets or travel packages only through official channels. For the purchase of singular tickets (without travel included), Australian fans will need to contact each hosting County directly.
