Cape Town - The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the details of the Cricket World Cup 2015 travel packages and ticket prices.

A number of different travel packages for all the matches in Australia and New Zealand are now available, and fans are encouraged to regularly visit the ICC Travel website to check the latest deals and offers.

Australia and New Zealand will jointly host the event, which will run from February 14 to March 29, 2015. The Cricket World Cup 2015 will feature 49 matches in 44 days across 14 host cities.  The opening match of the tournament will be played in Christchurch, New Zealand, and the final will be played in Melbourne, Australia.

The individual tickets will go on sale from February 14, 2014 - exactly a year before the first ball is bowled in the ICC’s flagship event - but fans can register their interest for tickets that will be available for pre-sale at

All ticket prices for the event are set in the currency of the country where the relevant match is played. So, for example, Match 13 between South Africa and India – the current world champions - which will take place in Melbourne on Sunday, February 22, 2015, will cost a family of four R480.  Ticket prices begin at R48 for children and R192 for adults.

Addressing a press conference in Sydney, John Harden, Chief Executive of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, said: “The two countries are hosting the tournament for the first time since 1992 and over time it has become one of the biggest sporting events in the world. We expect thousands of visitors, especially from India, who are the current world champions, and from the UK and South Africa, to support their sides.”

“We’re operating on a first come, first served basis, so international fans are encouraged to buy now.”
