    Cricket Australia 'slashes' ticket prices

    Some good news.....

    Cricket Australia slashes ticket prices for 2016-17 international matches

    Cricket Australia has slashed entry level ticket prices for international matches for next summer.

    The cheapest tickets for Tests and one-day matches will be no more than $30 for adults, $10 for children and $65 for families.

    More than three quarters of all seats will be cheaper than last year.

    The move comes after poor attendances at several venues for last summer's Tests against New Zealand and the West Indies.

    Cricket Australia (CA) chief executive said the organisation had concluded from a review that some fans had been excluded from attending Australian games due to affordability.

    "This gives the opportunity for more fans to experience first-hand the skills and talent of Australia's best cricketers," Sutherland said.

    "At Cricket Australia our aim is to put fans first and we are living by that mantra.

    Sydney fans attending the New Year's Test against Pakistan and ODIs will see a saving of $20 on adult general reserve tickets.

    Fans in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane will save between $5 and $10 on adult tickets for international matches.

    Kids will be admitted free to Twenty20 internationals.

    Quality step. Leverage those massive stadiums to get kids watching the game, basically only Aus can afford to do this. Huge potential competitive advantage.

    It's a good move by CA given the market for the sporting dollar and for participants is so competitive here.

    Great move. I wonder if these prices will extend to popular events, like Ashes or India Tests though.

    Better for everyone. Players want to play in front of a full house. Kids should be always free and adults $30.

    Should be supported by the cities too as it'd conceivably encourage more families to go to multiple days of a test.

    Awesome news. Was just about to purchase the Boxing Day test tickets

    Great news. I need to take the wife so she learns to appreciate cricket - or likely failing that - make her detest it enough to leave me alone when the tests are on the telly.
