The 2023 Women’s Ashes has broken the ticket sales record for England fixtures and has sold more than 55,000 tickets so far. 

There are just under 100 days to go and the series has already sold more tickets than all of England’s games last year.

The Women’s Ashes is a multi-format series and will be held across Test match grounds for the first time, including Trent Bridge, Edgbaston, Lord’s and The Kia Oval. The series will feature a Test, three International T20s and three One Day Internationals.

This is in comparison to the Men’s Ashes, which is played over five Test matches. The Men’s and Women’s Ashes are set to take place concurrently for the first time, on the same platform and without any fixture clashes.

The Women’s Ashes will begin with a Test match on June 22 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, followed by the first T20 on July 1 at Edgbaston in Birmingham. The next two T20s will take place on July 5 at The Kia Oval and July 8 at Lord’s. Bristol’s Seat Unique Stadium will host the first ODI on July 12 and the second ODI will be held at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton on July 6.

The final ODI will take place at the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton on July 18.

The T20 at Edgbaston has already sold 14,000 tickets and is on track to break the previous attendance record of 15,000 for a single fixture, when England played India at Lord’s last year.
