To maximise the success of as many people as possible, we have set the following maximum limits on purchases in this priority sales window.

With demand for tickets to the England v. Australia Men’s Test match expected to be exceptionally high, we have set a limit across the entire match, rather than per match day, to give as many people as great a chance of securing tickets to at least one match day as possible.  

We have simplified our ticket categories this year. Tickets are available in the following categories and pricing: 

Please note:  

  • Under-16 ticket prices are two-tiered for the Men’s and Women’s Ashes matches.  

  • Category E and F tickets offer restricted view seating. Please look at the <view from> feature when selecting tickets in a particular stand to see how significant the restriction may be. In some cases, it is very minor. 

  • Day 4 of the Ireland Test match has 20% reduced pricing, compared to Days 1–3. 

Debit / Credit card details will need to be entered to secure the tickets. Payment will be taken immediately. Please see the ticketing Ts&Cs below for more information.
