The South Australian Cricket Association has today confirmed that fans will be given ticketed but free access to the two ICC Cricket World Cup warm-up matches to be played at Adelaide Oval on 8 February 2015 and 10 February 2015.
Only 14 warm-up matches will be played across four cities as part of the Tournament. With fans in Adelaide, Christchurch, Melbourne and Sydney being the only fans being rewarded with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Approximately 27,000 free tickets will be available for those warm-up matches being played at Adelaide Oval. These free general admission tickets will be released online from www.cricketworldcup.com on 22 January 2015. Tickets should be printed at home and brought to the Oval.
Fans are advised that warm-up matches are what the name implies; they are not official ODIs but are designed to allow teams the chance to prepare for the World Cup. They operate under slightly different rules with up to 15 players able to be used throughout the game.
The range of activities and spectator experiences in and around warm-up venues will in most cases be less than what is provided during the World Cup itself.
Fans must purchase tickets in order to attend Tournament matches. Tournament tickets are selling fast with only a limited number remaining for some matches, including the Quarter Final at Adelaide Oval.
