Affordable family pricing was the key focus as the ticketing details for the Men's T20 World Cup in Australia next year were announced at a launch event in Sydney.
Australia will host the next major global cricket event with the women's and men's T20 showpiece tournaments coming down under for the first time.
While women's tickets are already on sale for that tournament which starts in February, Tuesday saw ticketing details revealed for the men's event that is scheduled for October 2020. More than a millions fans are expected to attend across both tournaments.
All men's first round and Super 12 matches will have children's tickets for $5, while more than 75 per cent of matches will have adult tickets from $20. This follows the precedent set by the KFC Big Bash League, which has consistently targeted families to attend the fastest growing format of the game.
Prices do increase for the pointy end of the competition: for the first semi-final in Adelaide children's tickets start from $10 and adult tickets from $40.
The second semi-final in Sydney has tickets starting from $90 for adults and from $20 for children.
The final at the MCG on November 15 has children's tickets starting from $20, while entry for adults starts at $125. A ticket to watch the final from the best seats in the house will cost $395.
Fans can register now for early access to tickets that will go on sale to the general public on October 18, exactly one year out from the start of the tournament.
ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Local Organising Committee CEO Nick Hockley said the recent World Cup in the UK had provided great inspiration for big turnout in 2020.
"Passionate fans from around the world were a highlight of the recently concluded World Cup and it is such an exciting prospect that both the women's and men's T20 World Cups are coming to Australia next year," said Hockley.
"We have made sure that tickets to all matches are accessibly priced so that families, friends and communities can come together to support their teams and celebrate these major world events.
"Fans can buy any combination of tickets and with hospitality and travel packages also launched fans across the world have the options and flexibility to build their own T20 World Cup experience."
