The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that the tickets bought by the fans for the ICC T20 World Cup (now postponed) which was scheduled to take place in Australia later this year will remain valid if Cricket Australia (CA) hosts the edition in 2021 instead of India. In case the event is shifted to 2022, all ticket holders will be receiving a complete refund, the ICC stated in a FAQ on their website.
The ICC has not yet announced which country will be hosting which edition as there are operational issues that both cricket Boards need to sort out between them. The ICC had already opened ticket booking through their ticketing partners and a significant number of tickets have been already sold.
Explaining the same in their FAQs, ICC stared, “Ticket holders are welcome to retain their tickets, noting, if Australia hosts in 2021, tickets will remain valid for fans who have already bought and will be automatically updated to reflect the new dates. “If Australia hosts in 2022, for tickets already bought a full refund will be processed automatically.”
Fans can retain their tickets until the hist of the 2021 edition of the tournament is finalized. Refund requests can be made up until 15 December 2020 and they will be processed within 30 days after online submission. The hospitality package will also remain valid for the 2021 fixture.
