What would be the going rate? I know it is sacrilegious to say it on these fora, but I would rather the ECB got the mark up and maximized profits rather than the touts. Average price is, what? £65 for this five match series. I am no fan of SKY but tbf the ECB have used their sugar daddy in a more productive way than the FA who are oversseeing a massive influx of money and yet we have the worst national team I have ever known. If there was a choice, would you rather free to air terrestrial tv test match coverage or subsidised tickets(i believe they are basically subsidised as ashes tests sell out, so by definition they could charge more).

So you would like even more fans in the country with the most expensive ticket prices in the world to be priced out of attending Ashes Test matches?
