More Western Bay of Plenty cricket fans can be part of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 this month, after an increase in permitted capacity from 10 to 20 per cent at venues means more people can see the action live from the banks at Bay Oval.

Tickets can now be purchased for all group stage matches – organisers advise fans to check www.tickets.cricketworldcup.com for up-to-date availability.

As a result, more tickets are on sale for the next four round robin matches at Bay Oval.

The round robin matches at the Bay Oval – with tickets available – are South Africa versus England on Monday, March 14, starting 2pm; England versus India on Wednesday, March 16 from 2pm; and Bangladesh versus West Indies next Friday, March 18, starting 11am.

CWC 22 chief executive Andrea Nelson says the tournament has got off to an amazing start, with runs aplenty and thrilling matches going right down to the wire.

“So we’re delighted that more fans can join us at the grounds and catch the action up close, the goal has always been to get as many New Zealanders involved as possible.”

“What we’ve seen at the matches so far is that there’s plenty of additional space for fans to spread out and safely social distance.

“And the measures we’ve put in place mean there‘ve been no issues with queuing and accessing stadium services.”

Organisers expect to release tickets for the Eden Park matches in the coming days, and will be creating a waitlist for fans keen to attend the semifinals in Wellington and Christchurch and the final at Hagley Oval on April 3.

“We’re really optimistic that conditions will continue to improve, allowing us to cater for more fans at the knockout games,” says Andrea.

“However, for now, our approach will be to register peoples’ interest so we can contact them directly once tickets for those matches do become available.”

Tickets for all Bay Oval matches are available now at: www.tickets.cricketworldcup.com
