The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 will be co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia, and at simultaneous events today, tournament organisers announced ticketing details. Seddon Park will host three pool matches during the tournament, with tickets priced as low as $5 for children and $20 for adults.

Hamilton’s three tournament matches are South Africa vs Zimbabwe (15 February), India vs Ireland (10 March) and New Zealand vs Bangladesh (13 March).

Hamilton Mayor Julie Hardaker says Seddon Park has long been a popular venue with families, due to its grassy banks and tree-lined perimeter, and ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 organisers have reflected that with pricing structures

“It’s great to see tickets for the matches held in Hamilton will be affordable for many families. We have a beautiful cricket ground, very close to the heart of the city, and when it’s full the atmosphere and colour are fantastic. Hamiltonians really gets behind major sporting in the city and I am confident these games will be sell-outs,” Mayor Hardaker says.

Northern Districts Cricket Association Chief Executive Peter Roach says the association is excited to be hosting matches at its picturesque ground.

“The SKYCITY Northern Knights contribute a number of players to the Black Caps set-up, and for most local fans, the chance to see them perform in an ICC Cricket World Cup on their home turf will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Mr Roach says.

“We’ll be tapping into all our networks across the association’s region to ensure all our supporters are aware of how the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 ticketing system works, and how they can be part of the tournament.”
