Pakistan v India tickets are still available as reasonably priced package deals

Fans hoping to attend Pakistan’s matches at the Champions Trophy will be delighted to know that tickets for all of Pakistan’s group games are still available through official outlets.

Pakistan will be playing their three ICC Champions Trophy group games against West Indies, South Africa and India, and supporters are advised that tickets are still available for all three fixtures through official channels, and that they should purchase promptly in order to avoid disappointment.

The West Indies fixture at the Oval in London has limited seats available in two stands with under 16 tickets for £5 and single adult tickets for £50. The South Africa fixture at Edgbaston in Birmingham has far more seats available with only two of the eight stands sold out. Under 16 tickets are £5, under 21s £10, and adult tickets for £35 and £50 depending on stand and seat. As expected, tickets for the India game are sold out via the official ticketing site, yet fans will be happy to know that package deals are still available from the website of the official travel partner of the ICC. With package deals starting at £162 including ticket, one night’s stay at a 3-star hotel and breakfast, we advise fans to take up these reasonable offers rather than purchasing tickets from illegal ticket touts who are charging extortionate amounts on the black market. Package deals for other games including the semi-finals and the final are also available. Continue reading “Champions Trophy ticket round-up”
