The official ticket launch takes place on Saturday, with President Mahinda Rajapaksa purchasing the first ticket of the tournament, which will run from September 18 to October 7 in Colombo, Hambantota and Pallekele.
There will be a four-day window for Sri Lankan fans to secure their seats, before tickets go on global sale at 0900 GMT on March 30. A second phase of tickets will become available on August 1.
Tickets for single group games are available from just US$0.25, while the final is attractively priced between US$2.50 and US$45.
Those wishing to watch the Women’s World Twenty20 can take advantage of an even better offer. Entry to all group games will be free, while the semi-finals and final will precede the respective men’s matches and are therefore covered by the same ticket.
Online booking of tickets will be available by logging onto www.icc-cricket.com, where further details can also be found.
