I guess where you sit is just luck of the draw unless you constantly refresh for ages! It's been an arduous process sorting the tickets out but thankfully I have all days for Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney so time to sit bak and wait now!

Managed to get all the days I wanted but up in the Gods on Boxing Day like a lot of other people seem to be!

Perth days 1 & 2 I am on the West Bank dry area - can anyone tell me if I'll be able to wander round to another area to get a beer as long as I don't take it back with me?

Managed to get all 4 days at Brisbane. Although 95% of tickets had been sold by the time I casually logged on this morning!!!!! And the only ones left were the rather chingy platinums!!!

Surprised at how quickly these tickets seem to be selling. Maybe, as someone suggested, its down to the 'wannabe touts' trying it on.


Also got first 4 days at Brisbane (mixture of blocks 32, 33 & 34) - total cost A$174.
It feels like quite a price hike from last time round but not too bad in value when you compare to £80 per day at Durham.
Sadly they don't seem to be selling the 5 day passes as they did last time.
Fingers crossed the "wannabe touts" will end up out of pocket...

Just got 2 tickets for Boxing Day at MCG, Q20, looks like quite a few of us there, as well as 2 tickets for the Monday (day 4) at SCG, bay 4 (in front of the screen). Anybody else nearby in Sydney?

i cant get any for Sydney gutted is the word!! spent 7K getting there n no tickets....


I may be able to help. Had a couple of relatives in Oz who both succeeded in getting tickets for me for day 1 & 2 in Sydney when they went on sale in Oz so am left with a few spares. Not actually got the tickets in my hands yet but relatives will courier to me when received (silver in O'Reilly stand). Not looking to make a profit just cover cost of tickets, currency transfer and courier costs. I you want to post your email address I can drop you an email to try and arrange how we do this. Don't want to post my email to avoid a heavy inbox.

Fortunate enough to get tickets for all 5tests apart from Sydney day1.... If anyone can help with 2tickets be grateful :)


May be able to help. Relatives in Oz were more successful than I expected in getting tickets when they went on sale there. I have a few spare for day 1. Not looking to make a profit just get my money back and cost of currently transfer, courier cost from Oz, etc.
Don't actually have them in my hand yet but should get them shortly after they are issued. Silver tickets.
If you want to post your email I will contact you to see how we might arrange this.

Just got tickets for Days 1 & 2 at the SCG in Bay 27 (Unreserved Seating). Seemed pretty quick and painless.

My cousin in Oz originally purchased tickets for me in the dry area at perth for days 3 and 4 which are now no longer needed due to grabbing some through the ECB sale. If anyone wants them let me know.

Face value is ideal but will listen to offers.

Surprised how easy it was through the ECB to be honest

To be honest, I'm paying about double that for my 4 days!!!!! Not quite sure what 'platinum' seating entails, but it had better be good. Sections 42, 43, 49, 66. Looks like I'll be up nice and high which to be honest, considering I'm gonna be jetlagged, at least allows the chance of some nod!!! Hope it goes to day 5 and then get to mingle with the BA!!!
