Christchurch cricket fans are being urged to secure their tickets to next month’s BLACKCAPS v England test match after Ticketek announced the sell-out of the March 10 One Day International (ODI) game.
Linda Falwasser, General Manager of Attraction for ChristchurchNZ says the test match is a great opportunity for our community and visitors to experience one of the biggest international cricket events of the summer.
“The BLACKCAPS are returning to Christchurch next month to take on England in an ODI and this is your opportunity to be part of the excitement, or stay local and check out the Test match against England over Easter weekend, a perfect outing for the family,” she says.
NZC GM Commercial James Wear was delighted with the demand, and thanked the wider Canterbury cricket family for their strong support of the game.
"It's great to see the ODI at Hagley Oval selling out, following on from the excellent crowd at last season's game against South Africa," said Mr Wear.
"For anyone who's missed out this time, remember there are still tickets available for the second Test against England, hosted at Hagley Oval from March 30 - 3 April.
Ms Falwasser says Christchurch’s strong cricket connection and extraordinary venue at Hagley Oval makes our city the perfect place to host international cricket games.
“We’re excited to welcome the BLACKCAPS and England to Christchurch and encourage the whole community to get involved, check out the games and enjoy the experience,” Ms Falwasser says.
“Test match tickets are now available from Ticketek so be quick and don’t miss out on being part of the excitement,” she says.
