To buy Ashes 2015 tickets for each of these games, you can approach the official website of their respective home ground, but one must add here that the stadiums are filling fast.
At the time of writing this, here’s an update on how things stand on the Ashes tickets.
The first Test of the series at Cardiff got over earlier with England winning by 169 runs and going up 1-0. What that means is that the demand for the tickets for the second Ashes Test will reach a fever-pitch and it could be a good time to buy them before the rush grows out to be unmanageable. Get all the details for the Lord’s tickets below.
The second Ashes Test at Lord’s will have it tougher because for all Test matches including the Ashes and One Day International, tickets are allocated via a ballot that runs between December 15 and January 7. Now assuming you are on this site because either you didn’t apply for that ballot or missed, here’s the good news for all those who want to buy Lord’s Ashes tickets.
Lord’s also allocates a few tickets for the general public, but according to the official Lord’s website, all tickets for all days of the second Ashes Test match except day five have been sold out. Yep, you can still buy the Ashes tickets for the fifth day of the Lord’s Test from www.tickets.lords.org but that’s about it.
Edgbaston will host the third Ashes Test and while there are tickets still available for all the days of the England-Australia Test match at this venue, there’s limited availability. What this means is that the most economically-priced Edgbaston Ashes ticket is £76, with the price going up to more than £90 for some of the seats. Buy these Edgbaston Ashes tickets soon enough to avoid disappointment.
Things get bad if you are looking for a ticket for the Trent Bridge Test match, what with the first three days of this fourth Ashes Test sold out. You can still get the Trent Bridge Ashes tickets for the fourth and the fifth day of the game, and they are priced between £65 and £85. The Larwood and Voce Stand tickets are at the lower end of the price spectrum, New Stand and Fox Road Stand cost £75 while the Radcliffe Road Lower & Middle Stands and Hound Road Lower Stand will all cost £85. The later you go for them, the costlier will these Ashes tickets get.
As things stand for the Oval Test match as well, the first four days of the game look like they are sold out, with the odd ticket or two remaining. By the time you will be reading this, our sense is that even those might not remain, so your only option is to buy the tickets for the final day of the match – and of the series – to enjoy any kind of cricketing action. The Oval Ashes tickets for this Test can be bought at eticketing.co.uk.
Our recommendation is to first try out at the official website for each of the aforementioned Test venues but if you don’t get through, then you can also try out Viagogo to buy your Ashes 2015 tickets.
It’s a secondary ticketing agency where you can buy and sell your tickets and we have used it ourselves to buy tickets for various cricketing events around the world – it’s used by sports fans world over to both, buy and sell tickets and has this super-quick service to most parts of the world. You will probably have to pay a premium but hey, that’s always going to be the case if you wait for that long!
And the good news is that the Ashes tickets for all the venues; Cardiff, Lord’s, Edgbaston, Trent Bridge and The Oval are available on the aforementioned site.
