The Ticket Ballot for 2023 international tickets at The Kia Oval has closed with over one million ticket requests.

There has been unprecedented demand for tickets via the Ticket Ballot for the 2023 fixtures. 119,000 individuals have requested over 1.1 million tickets in total.

Demand has been highest for the Men’s Ashes Test Match (27-31 July), where all five days could have sold out 10 times over. Nearly 13,000 entrants have requested tickets for the Women’s Ashes IT20 (Wednesday 5 July).

The demand for the ballot has significantly surpassed the figures in previous years; for the international summer of 2019, which included the last time the Men’s Ashes were held in England, there were around 33,000 entrants to the Ticket Ballot.

Entrants will be informed if they have been successful in the week commencing 19 December and will also receive information on how they can purchase tickets. Any remaining tickets will go on General Sale from Monday 17 January but it is not expected that there will be significant numbers of tickets available at this point.
