ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) today announced a special ticket offer for local cricket fans ahead of the upcoming One-Day International Series between West Indies and England.

The matches are just days away – with the opening match at the picturesque Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground on Friday, March 3. The second match will be at the same venue on Sunday, March 5 with the final game at the historic Kensington Oval in Barbados on Thursday, March 9.

First ball is 9:30am (8:30am Jamaica Time/1:30pm GMT).

The WICB has set aside an additional 3,000 ground tickets for the local patrons in Antigua a cost of just EC$50 (approximately US$18.50) – half the original price.

At Kensington Oval, the first 1,000 tickets sold in the Greenidge & Haynes lower stand will cost just BDS$75 (approximately US$37.50) – half the original price.

Adults can also purchase children’s ticket (12 years and under) for all three games at an additional 50 percent off the new price.

Fans looking to take advantage of this special offer will need to provide a national ID and there is a limit of two tickets per person and these MUST be purchased at the ticket offices – to the east of the Antigua Recreational Ground and at Kensington Oval.

“With a large number of travelling England fans attending the series, we expect all three matches to be sold out,” said Johnny Grave, Chief Executive Officer of WICB.

“We are keen to have as many West Indian fans as possible in attendance, so we have set aside these tickets for local fans at special discounted prices. We want to urge them to come out, throw their full support behind our players and ensure that each match has a real Caribbean atmosphere.”

Affordable? A few years ago I went to Kensington Oval for a test between west indies and Australia. The fourth day was US $5 or 10 bajan dollars. The fifth day's play was half that.

Now that was affordable.

Correction.

Fourth day US $10 bajan 20 dollars

Fifth day US $5 bajan 10 dollars

Still much cheaper than what these tickets are going for.

I went to both days to watch the west indies throw away a lead and lose the match. But it didn't bother me so much because the tickets were cheap. How many bajans are going to spend so much money to watch our team get beaten? I expect to see a lot of white faces on my TV screen.
