Tickets for the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup (February 19 - April 2) are now on sale and available via the ICC website during this first phase of ticketing. Prices are between $0.20 and $600, with the cheapest matches being those taking place in Sri Lanka.
Tickets purchased during this first phase are due to be sent out during December 2010 and January 2011, with the final phase commencing a few weeks before the tournament itself, when tickets will be made available locally.
There are also batch tickets available that allow fans to follow their team throughout the group stages, and prices for those are to be announced July 1, 2010.
A second kind of promotion consists of passes to matches in one particular city, or cities within a region, and pricing is again due for announcement in July.
The tenth World Cup tournament is to be co-hosted by India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh.
Fourteen cricketing nations are split into two groups of seven for the initial round-robin group stage which takes until March 20.
Only the top four teams in each group go through to the Quarter-finals which take place on March 23, 24, 25, and 26.
Bangladesh have two of the Cup's stadia in Dhaka and Chittagong, while Sri Lanka have three, in Colombo, Kandy, and Hambantota respectively.
India are supplying the eight remaining stadia, from Mohali and New Delhi in the north to Bangalore and Chennai in the south, and the central cities of Kolkata, Ahmedabad, and Nagpur.
The semi-finals are in Colombo's Ranasinghe Premadasa Stadium and Mohali's Punjab Cricket Association Stadium on March 29 and 30.
