The International Cricket Council (ICC) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have announced fans will be able to snap up tickets for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 from August 25.

Fans will be able to register their interest from August 15 before tickets are placed on sale. 

This year’s Cricket World Cup will take place in India from October 5 to November 19. 

An updated fixture list has also been unveiled, with nine of the fixtures now confirmed. The new confirmed fixtures will see England take on Bangladesh in Dharamsala on October 10, followed by Pakistan vs Sri Lanka in Hyderabad. Australia will then face South Africa in Lucknow on October 12 with New Zealand taking on Bangladesh on October 13 in Chennai. 

A major match between India vs Pakistan will take place on October 14 in Ahmedabad. The fixture list had initially been delayed as it was not confirmed if Pakistan would feature in the tournament due to tension between the two countries.

England will then face Afghanistan in Delhi on October 15 and Australia vs Bangladesh will take place in Pune on November 11. England will also take on Pakistan in Kolkata on this date. November 11 in Bengaluru will see home nation India take on the Netherlands. 

To manage the expected demand for tickets, and to offer as many fans as possible the best chance of attending, tickets will be placed on sale in phases. 

Tickets for non-India warm-up matches and all non-India event matches will go on sale on August 25. India matches at Guwahati and Trivandrum will go on sale on August 30, while India matches at Chennai, Delhi and Pune will be placed on sale on August 31. 

India matches at Dharamsala, Lucknow and Mumbai will go on sale on September 1 and India fixtures at Bengaluru and Kolkata will go on sale on September 2. On September 3, India games at Ahmedabad will be placed on sale. 

Finally, tickets for the semi-finals and final will be placed on sale on September 15.
