    Ashes Tickets 2010/11

    Myself and a few mates are planning coming down to Aus next winter for the Melbourne and Sydney tests on Boxing Day and New Year's. The various tasks - i.e. flights, accommodation, tickets are being split around and it's my job to figure out how the ticketing works. Can anyone give me any tips?

    Havent come out yet.

    Sign up to the Australian newsletter on cricket.com.au and they give you a heads up and possibly even early access to tickets. Sold out last time very quickly so you have to be on the ball.

    Never mind tickets, have an afternoon off and come and get on the cans.

    Wouldn't you prefer to get on the VB Mid-strengths at the game

    Haha, god they are bad. I declared pretty early yesterday; just couldn't cop it. I think they were even flatter than normal, which is really saying something.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    The key is to have a few beers beforehand so you can't tell how flat they are. I had a few at tea gardens and the Olympic beforehand and ended up declaring around 5.

    Yeah solid option. I thought I'd be able to cop it after I'd had two or three of them, but no. It's not so much the flavour as such but the fact that they have the consistency of cordial. Didn't think they were as bad last year.

    Really? I thought they were manageable this year. Where abouts were you sitting?

    Boxing Day is always awful. But we've started a tradition. 9 each in '08 and 14 each in '09. I hope it doesn't grow exponentially for next year; there's only so much VB I can handle. It is the only day I ever touch the horrid stuff.

    Going the flask next time

    Think I read somewhere that tickets go on sale in June/July.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Can't wait to see the SCG packed to the rafters either at the upcoming pajamas series or the Ashes

    Counting down, it's getting closer...

    Trying to get the balance right for tickets. Apparently there is a pre-buying window for ACF members with Australian addresses from 14 July before general sale on 20 July. This leaves us in a little bit of limbo... unless someone is keen to buy tickets, mail them half way across the world and get paid via paypal for their troubles?
