    I don't believe for a second all tickets were bought by genuine fans.

    ICC need to crack down on people selling tickets at inflated prices.

    The easiest way to do this is to issue names on the tickets and check IDs at ground.

    Even if ICC announce that they will issue names on the tickets and even if they don't checks Ids at ground then it will be enough to deter people from paying inflated prices for these tickets and touts will have no option but to return tickets.

    I appeal to every one not to pay inflated prices for these tickets.

    You have sites like viagogo that are selling tickets for all the games at ridicolous prices.

    Having spoken to a few of my relatives they all received an email from ICC confirming that they have been successful in their application and got India v Pak, Semi and Final tickets. This was later followed by another email which stated it was an error and no money had been deducted from their account .

    What a blunder

    Cricket World Cup organisers have apologised after thousands of fans were mistakenly told they had got tickets in a ballot for next year's tournament.

    Ticketing partner Ticketmaster sent emails on Friday titled "Cricket World Cup 2019 - confirmation of payment" but more than 4,000 people were later informed the emails were sent in error.

    Ticketmaster has said no money was taken from those affected.

    The World Cup will be in England and Wales from 30 May to 14 July.

    "A number of CWC19 ticketing emails were sent out in error," said a statement from organisers.

    "Ticketmaster will contact any affected customers directly. We apologise for any inconvenience or confusion."

    Ticketmaster also apologised for the email error.

    Some fans posted on social media about their disappointment, saying they had already booked travel and accommodation.

    World Cup organisers said 2.7 million tickets had been applied for and so far they have sold 450,000 of the 800,000 available.

    Tickets to the tournament could be purchased through a ballot process, in which buyers select matches they would like to see and are entered into a draw.

    Fans are then contacted to be told whether they have been successful or not. In this case, some people said they were confused whether they had tickets or not after previously being told they were unsuccessful.

    Shambles.

    To send out an email saying people have got tickets and then a few hours later to reverse that is nothing short of pathetic.

    New Delhi: Not more than 3,500 tickets are left in total for the 2019 World Cup in England, said a top ICC official in New Delhi on Wednesday.

    Campbell Jamieson, General Manager (Commercial) at the International Cricket Council, said most of the tickets have been sold out for the tournament to be held in the UK from 30 May-14 July. Overall, 48 games will be played in the mega event.

    Tickets for all India games are sold out, including the one against Pakistan on 16 June at Old Trafford.

    "Most of the World Cup games are sold out. I think we have just about 3,500 tickets left in total. This shows the interest the game is greater than ever," Jamieson told PTI after announcement of the tie-up between ICC and Indian beer brand Bira 91.

    England will host South Africa in the tournament opener at the Oval on 30 May while the final will be held on 14 July at Lord's.

    I don't believe this for a second.

    Whilst all available general tickets may have been sold, there are plenty still for sale as part of Hospitality packages with most tickets starting at approximately 500 each. It shows the level of greed associated with the ICC that so many have been reserved for this money-making scheme instead of being available to genuine fans via the ballot.

    As a UK-based fan who's attended 50+ of our games over here, I refuse to believe that a weekday game in Bristol against Sri Lanka has sold out almost a year in advance, given that Edgbaston last year for the South Africa game was barely 60% full. And I can't believe, that in an Ashes summer, so many neutral England fans would be interested in games such as this.

    Totally agree. I wouldn't be surprised to see many empty seats for "sold out" matches and that would be a shame.

    As well as the ticket farce, i find it rather stupid that pakistan are playing big games against australia and sri lanka at bristol and taunton when they could have got old trafford to host these sort of big games. Taunton is such a rubbish ground with hardly any capacity

    There is something wrong with ticketing website. Since yesterday, 32 matches have "Select This Match" option available, but after clicking, all tickets are shown as sold out. Has someone had luck buying tickets in resale phase?

    Surprise surprise, absolutely not.

    Hospitality tickets remain of course...for the low low price of 500.

    I'm confused. Just checking my account and seems that the tickets I got allocated were 18 each so total price is 144 but ticketmaster took out 340 from my account. This was all back in June btw, but I only was checking more about it today as my family who are coming over to England from America for this match booked their tickets yesterday. Who can I email?

    Checked yesterday and basically all the tickets are sold for Pakistan games minus a few hospitality packages
    As for the rest of the tournament, I believe only a handful of matches are not sold out at this stage

    It’s going to look awful when so many big games have empty seats next year, because people are trying to resell them at crazy prices
