How Ballot Winners Buy Tickets - Kia Oval Skip to main content

For all cricket fans lucky enough to be successful in the Kia Oval Ballot for tickets to the 2021 India Test and the ODI with Sri Lanka, it’s almost time to book your seats.

As of 9am on Thursday 10th December until 5pm on Monday 14th December, you’ll be able to purchase tickets for both the England v Sri Lanka ODI on Thursday 1st July and England v India Test between Thursday 2nd – Monday 6th September at the Kia Oval.

You are eligible to buy up to four tickets for the ODI and four tickets for the Test. Members of Surrey County Cricket Club have already secured tens of thousands of tickets for the 2021 Internationals at the Kia Oval, and therefore availability for all days of the Test can not be guaranteed to ballot winners.

Want To Make Sure You’re Sat With Family and Friends?

There is a My Network functionality on our eTicketing site that allows you to search for a friend’s customer code, and secure tickets on their behalf.

Ahead of Tuesday, log on / create account, click ‘my account’ (top right) then ‘my network’ and search for your friend by customer code or email address.

Once connected, change permissions from default ‘allow to ASSIGN tickets’ to ‘allow to MANAGE tickets’. This sends the other person a request via email, which they need to accept and then will let you buy their tickets with yours in one transaction.

To buy, select and add both their number of tickets and yours to your basket. You will be notified on check-out that you have too many and need to reassign some. Click ‘reassign’ next to the ticket and this will bring up the list of people in your network. Reassign a number of tickets to someone else and you will be good to proceed to buy.


For anyone requiring accessible seating in the Kia Oval, please email with a contact number and you will be contacted by a member of our ticketing team after tickets have gone on sale.
