Tickets available only on www.t20worldcup.com/tickets
Tickets went on sale last week, with thousands being snapped up in record time. There are still tickets available for games across all four venues; Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Oman and Sharjah and the world’s best players are calling on the expat community in the middle-east not to miss out.
Jos Buttler, England, said. “Wherever we travel, England fans show up and cheer us on. So we want as many at our games as possible, not least as so many live in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and it will be great to have them in stadia cheering us on.”
Aaron Finch, Australia, said: “We know we have loads of Aussie fans here in the UAE and would love for them to come watch us across the tournament. It’s a wonderful chance for them to see Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Pat Cummins and all of our guys together against some of the very best sides in the world. After the challenges of the past 18 months for everyone here and overseas it would be awesome to have the fans there cheering us on.”
Trent Boult, New Zealand, added: “The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is always a really exciting event and we expect this version in the UAE and Oman to be no different. We know there are plenty of BLACKCAPS fans in this part of the world and we’re hoping to see them in the stands cheering us on with crowds now confirmed for all matches. It's pretty special seeing Kiwi support when you’re playing away from home and in a world event.”
Tabraiz Shamsi, South Africa said: “We have huge matches including clashes with Australia in Abu Dhabi, the West Indies in Dubai and England in Sharjah. Fans of the Proteas are worldwide so we can’t wait for them to fill the stands and help create a special atmosphere.”
Ireland’s Paul Stirling added: “We have a good record of spectators coming and watching us everywhere in the world, particularly here. You always see an Irish flag and Irish cricket supporters everywhere. We certainly always go and visit them in the Irish Village so hopefully they can come and visit us!”
