2010 T20 WC tickets go on salee tickets for next year's Twenty20 World Cup in Dubai went on sale on Sunday with ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat expressing hope that fans would come out in numbers to buy them due to affordable prices.
The Twenty20 World Cup in West Indies may be still six months away but the countdown for the event formally started today with tournament director Robert Bryan launching the ticket sales at Kensington Oval in Barbados.
"This is the third edition of the ICC World Twenty20 and, I am every bit as excited and confident about its success as about the previous two," Lorgat said.
"Tickets go on sale from November 1 and with a very reasonable and affordable pricing structure in place, we expect them to be snapped up very quickly. Already we have had many enquiries for these tickets.
"We want to see fans filling the party stands and enjoying the sights, sounds and fellowship of international cricket with a real West Indian feel," he added.
"For the cricketing-loving people of the Caribbean, the ICC World Twenty20 2010 is a rare opportunity to view the world's top cricketers – both men's and women's – performing at their best. The countdown to April 30 is on."
This is the second international cricket event that West Indies will be hosting since the 50-over World Cup in 2007, the ICC said in a statement.
