Over 15,000 tickets have already been sold over the past one week for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 to be held in England and Wales from 1-18 June. All the matches involving defending champion India, as well as the semi-finals and final are also sold out.
This means that eight out of the 15 fixtures are now sold out and that ticket sales at this stage has already exceeded those for the ICC Champions Trophy 2013, which was also held at the three venues being used this time – Cardiff Wales Stadium, Edgbaston and The Oval.
It also takes ticket applications to beyond 500,000 from 60 countries, since the ballot last September.
Steve Elworthy, Tournament Director, said: “The demand has been extraordinary so far but there are still limited tickets available for some matches across all venues.
