The chairman of the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) said he is expecting “high demand” for the 2019 World Championship as tickets go on sale today (Thursday).

The host of the tournament, the Czech Softball Association (CSA), today announced the launch of global ticket sales with GoOut as its ticketing partner.

The WBSC Men’s Softball World Championship 2019 will will be staged in the Czech capital of Prague and Havlickuv Brod from June 13-23.

“This is great news for the loyal men’s softball fan base around the world,” said Tommy Velazquez, WBSC Softball Division Chairman. “It’s the first ever Men’s Softball World Championship in Europe, in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. We expect high ticket demand for the tournament, and fully packed diamonds in Prague and Havlickuv Brod in June.”

Early tournament packages are available for all the games, with single passes for the opening round group stage as well as playoffs available.
