The only concession that we have managed to secure from Cricket australia so far is to highlight in which areas the Barmy Army have been allocated seats. this is shown on the maps of each ground.

For Adelaide we will go into the general admission areas so there is no specific seating allocation.

I will write in more detail in advance of the tickets goingon sale through teh ACF so everyone is aware of how we plan to group up together at each venue..

Thanks for the update Dave. I hope the ECB makes it just as hard for the 25 travelling Aussie fans that come to England for the Ashes. F#$k em.

Anyways, we know where we're sat so all of us independent ticket buyers know where to aim for to be close, we'll make this work like we always do.

By halfway through day 2 the grounds will be all ours anyway.

Hi all

I'm new to the board and have just booked up for the Perth, Melbourne and Sydney tests with a few mates.

One question I have after reading through the booklet just released is whether Ticketmaster and Ticketek will be offering the choice to take e-tickets rather than the official printed versions? I couldn't find anything on either website and nothing jumped out at me in the booklet.

I'm going to e-mail them but wondered whether this option was available on the previous tour?

Cheers

Having seen the recent release of prices for the the series, I was wondering if any body might have an idea of which days really need to be bought up the second they go on sale and which might be OK to leave for a while. I'm guessing Boxing Day would need to be bought ASAP but what about the others? I realise this series will probably be different to previous ones as the Aussies seem to have lost interest, but if anyone can share their experiences from previous tours it would be much appreciated.

As this is my first time in Australia, I'm looking at going to every day for Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, and Sydney. Plus the Saturday and Sunday for Adelaide. I don't really want to pay $1500 in one hit if I can avoid it and there is a slim chance that I may not still be here come the end of the year due to only just started a new job here.

Thanks

I have booked other tickets (rugby, footy etc.) through ticketek in Melbourne on numerous occasions and always had e-ticket option so I would assume this will be the case for the Ashes too. Not promising anything as I don't know for certain but always had that option through them for other events. They still charge an admin fee of $5+ for it though, the same fee as posted tickets and tickets collected from the venue.

I haven't been on previous Ashes tours but based on the size of the MCG I'd say you'd be fine leaving Day 2-5 until later. Boxing Day will be popular of course but 100,000 seats is huge for a cricket ground and I can't see it selling out considering the Aussies losing interest so much this last couple of years. I guess it depends on if you are fussy about where you sit though? The top of the MCG is a long, long way up. If you are happy with those seats I'd imagine you'd be fine leaving it.

From what I have read on here and heard in the past, Perth sells out very fast.

Perth and Sydney are the ones you want to jump on as quick as you can.

As previous poster said, MCG day 1 will be busy but I doubt will sell out, the other days, no problems at all.

There has never been an e-ticket option for Ashes games in the past to my knowledge, but that's not to say there won't be this time. Even if there isn't, the postal service between Australia and England is surprisingly quick in my experience.
