Press release -
ODI series sold out in record-breaking Metro Bank Women's Ashes Series
- Three-match We Got Game ODI Series in the Metro Bank Women's Ashes Series officially a sell-out
- Vitality IT20 Series sets two consecutive record attendances, ticket sales approaching 20,000 for Lord's
- Over 94,000 tickets sold for the Metro Bank Women's Ashes Series
The We Got Game ODI Series between England Women and Australia Women in the Metro Bank Women's Ashes Series has sold out – becoming the first sold-out series in England Women’s history.
There are no tickets remaining for the matches at The Ageas Bowl in Hampshire, the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton and the Seat Unique Stadium, Bristol, meaning the three-match series also becomes the first bilateral ODI series in women's cricket to be a sell-out.
The new landmark comes amidst a momentous Metro Bank Women's Ashes Series which has already seen records fall. Overall, over 94,000 tickets have been sold for the multi-format series up to this point, nearly three times the 32,000 total attendance for the Women's Ashes in 2019 and approaching double the previous record for total attendance at England Women fixtures in a year (50k in 2022).
In addition, Trent Bridge broke new ground for a women's Test match in England with 23,207 tickets sold over the five days, while ticket sales for the Vitality IT20 Series are also breaking records. Edgbaston's attendance of 19,527 was a record crowd for a home England Women bilateral fixture, surpassed four days later by 20,328 at The Kia Oval.
A new record attendance could be set at Lord's in tomorrow's third Vitality IT20, with ticket sales currently approaching 20,000. Adult tickets are available from £15 and U16s £5, tickets are available here.
Richard Gould, ECB Chief Executive Officer, said: “This Metro Bank Women’s Ashes Series is setting record after record for international women’s cricket attendances in this country.
"To sell out an England Women’s ODI series for the first time is a landmark moment, and is yet more evidence of the growing momentum behind the women’s game.
"With everything still to fight for after this week’s thrilling win at The Kia Oval, it’s great to see so many people are snapping up their chance to see the team in action.”
