How to buy tickets

Tickets for matches at Lord's are sold in a variety of ways


Tickets for International fixtures are allocated via a ballot - the fairest way of ensuring as many people as possible are able to attend Test and ODI cricket at Lord's.

The 2019 Public Ticket Ballot opens on Monday 17th December and will run until 11th January 2019.

The Club believes that a randomly selected ballot system is the fairest method available to distribute tickets to as many applicants as possible so they can attend a major match at the Home of Cricket.

Those wishing to attend an international match at Lord’s have a window of opportunity to apply for the ballot.

For the 2019 season, the ballot will be for England's Tests against Ireland & Australia, the Public Ticket Ballot will open on Monday 17th December 2018 & closes on Friday 11th January 2019. 

Those wishing to apply for the ballot may do so from that date. 

Every application is treated equally, no matter when it is submitted, so take your time making your decisions.

There is a limit to the number of tickets an applicant can apply for on each day.

Once the application window is closed, a random computerised ballot is run to determine which entrants are allocated tickets.

If you’re lucky enough to be allocated some or all of the tickets you applied for in the ballot, MCC will take payment from the card details provided and then you will be sent a confirmation email.

If the Ticket Office is unable to take the payment for whatever reason, you will then be contacted to make an alternative method of payment. 

Please ensure the contact details held for you by the Club are correct before completing your application; login to your record on and click ‘My Account’.

Unfortunately, high demand for tickets at Lord's means that many match days are oversubscribed each summer.

Once the ballot is concluded, if you have missed out on the tickets for which you originally applied, we will inform you via email.

For those who have missed out, we then offer a priority booking period for any major match tickets which are unsold after the ballot.

Following the drawing of the ballot, any unallocated tickets are placed on general sale, on a first-come-first-served basis, from All applicants will be informed via email of the success of their application, as well as being provided with information about tickets that become available on general sale.
