THE Ageas Bowl has seen unprecedented demand for tickets to next year’s Royal London ODI between England and Pakistan after record-breaking sales followed the start of a priority on-sale period last week.

Hampshire Cricket's home will host the third 50-over fixture of the five-match series between the two countries in May.

And the priority period which opened on Thursday received overwhelming interest, with more advanced tickets sold than for any other previous ODI or IT20 fixture staged at the venue.

This early demand follows hot on the heels of a thrilling Test contested by England and India at the Ageas Bowl in August where more than 50,000 fans attended across four days of action.

The opening day of priority access this year also saw more tickets sold for next year’s one ODI than for all days of the England versus India Test combined last year.

The Ageas Bowl’s chief executive David Mann said: “After the overwhelming success of this year’s Test match between England and India at the Ageas Bowl, it’s very pleasing to see this unprecedented demand continuing through our priority on-sale period ahead of next summer’s ODI.

“Alongside five ICC Cricket World Cup fixtures coming to the south coast next year, we’re looking forward to hosting what is sure to be another excellent summer of international cricket here at the Ageas Bowl in 2019.”

Following the conclusion of the priority booking period, tickets were today released for general sale.

Tickets are priced from £40 for adults and £15 for under-17s. The lowest-priced seats are expected to be snapped up this week.

Tickets can be purchased online via, over the phone on 0844 847 1863 or in person from the Ageas Bowl Ticketing and Membership Office during normal working hours.
