    SA Tickets, LORDS Day 1

    I have 2 tickets for Thur 10th July Day 1 Lords v SA through the ECB supporters club, and cannot attend due to a change in my work plans. Does anyone want to swap for any other day of that test, or failing that, purchase at face value (157.20 the pair)?
    Many thanks, Jeff

    haha could get them elsewhere for cheaper, the value you have placed on them is waay too high, my ticket to the first day of the 2005 ashes cost less than that.

    thanks for that! As I said, that's the face value I paid the minute they were released by the ECB on Ticketmaster on Feb 18th. Please do go elsewhere.

    That seems reasonable to me, from what I saw of the ticket prices. The cheapest Lords tickets against SA are 60 each, and they're in the worst stand.

    Lords Tickets

    They're in the Compton stand. The seats I had for Day 1 of the recent NZ Lords test were Row 4 Upper Compton which is just to the right of the media centre at the Nursery end - a wide long on to a right hander batting at the Pavillion end. Upper Compton is directly over Lower Compton, so Row 4 is very close to the boundary and just a few feet off the ground. It was a great view. I bought these 2 first, so I see no reason why they wouldn't be even closer. The ECB send them out 2-3 weeks before the match, so I don't have them yet.
    Thanks for your interest.

    just found this - Upper Compton 220 each!!
    To reiterate, I'm only after a swap for another day or face value to a real fan.
    Thanks

    William Buckland, a management consultant, recently released a report on English cricket. One of many salient passages contained mentioned how...
    ... the ECB's strategy recently has been to deny access to the England team for the majority in order to raise the price paid by the minority

    Bloody hell. That's obscene prices. They've sky rocketed in the 3 years since I've returned to NZ.

    Puts the cost of all five days of the Basin Reserve test in perspective. That cost about a quarter of the price of a single day at Lord's.
