Record-Breaking Surge in Ticket Sales from India for BGT 2024-25


Cricket enthusiasts across India are buzzing with excitement as the Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) 2024-25 approaches. Cricket Australia (CA) has announced a remarkable surge in ticket sales from India for this highly anticipated Test series.

India and Australia share one of the fiercest rivalries in cricket. Their encounters have produced nail-biting moments, unforgettable innings, and intense battles on the field.

The upcoming BGT will witness a momentous event—the two teams locking horns in a five-match series after 33 years. The last time they contested a five-match series was way back in 1991.

Indian cricket fans are showing unprecedented enthusiasm. A large number of them have booked their seats to witness the action live from iconic Australian stadiums. The surge in ticket sales is staggering—six times more than the previous season.

To enhance the viewing experience for Indian supporters, Cricket Australia has introduced Indian Fan Zones for the first time in a Test series Down Under. These zones aim to create a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere, fostering a sense of community among fans at all venues.

BGT 2024-25 Schedule:

First Test: November 22 at Optus Stadium, Perth.

Second Test (Day-Night): December 6-10 at Adelaide Oval.

Third Test: December 14-18 at the historic Gabba in Brisbane.

Boxing Day Test: December 26 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Fifth Test: January 3 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Joel Morrison, General Manager of Events & Operations at Cricket Australia, expressed his delight: “We are thrilled to see so many Indian fans planning to travel to Australia for the NRMA Insurance Border-Gavaskar Trophy series. They can expect a very warm welcome here. We are committed to providing an enjoyable and memorable experience for everyone attending, and we’re confident this series will be remembered for many years to come.”

As the countdown begins, cricket aficionados eagerly await the clash of titans—a battle that promises drama, passion, and cricketing excellence.
