Dubai: The allocated tickets for the ICC Champions Trophy match between arch-rivals India and Pakistan scheduled on June 15 at the Edgbaston in Birmingham, has been sold out within half an hour of its release for online sales.
"We've been staggered by the interest shown by today's ticket sales," said Tournament Director Steve Elworthy, adding: "The allocation of tickets for India v Pakistan sold out in under 30 minutes, with tickets released for other matches, including the final, also selling-out. The tickets that were released today sold very quickly."
Adult tickets for the ICC Champions Trophy are priced in three categories – Gold, Silver and Family Stand – and range from pound 20 (for a group game in the Family Stands) up to pound 60 (Gold ticket for the Final).
Tickets for under 16s are priced at pound 5 for the entire tournament (including the Final), but the youngsters are suppose to attend with an adult.
A new pricing structure also sees the introduction of tickets for under 21s, priced between pounds 10 - 25.
ICC Champions Trophy will be held in Cardiff, Edgbaston and The Oval.
