Lord's will attract a record-breaking crowd when it stages its first Twenty20
match between Middlesex Crusaders v Surrey Lions on Thursday 15th July.
The number of tickets sold by MCC will today reach 15,000 - which is higher than the total attendance (14,862) at last season's Twenty20 match between Lancashire Lightning and Yorkshire Phoenix.
Roger Knight, Secretary & Chief Executive of MCC, said: "We are delighted that tickets have been selling so well. We look forward to staging our first Twenty20 match in front of a record-breaking crowd."
With demand still at very high levels, spectators are encouraged to buy their tickets - which cost £10 for adults and £5 for children - as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment. They can be bought by 'phone (020 7432 1000) or on-line (see 'Buy Tickets', above right).
Advance ticket sales will cease at 11am on Monday 12th July - unless the Ground has been sold-out before then. (All eighty boxes and suites have been sold-out since mid-May.) On-the-day sales will be on a cash-only basis at the North Gate ticket sales points.
Ticket sales have been boosted by the many promotional initiatives organised by
MCC and Middlesex County Cricket Club - including partnerships with Classic FM,
BBC Sport On-line, TNT magazine and The Voice newspaper.
