Q. I missed out on entering the ballot, can I still access a wrist band to watch the performance from the field?


A.     We’re sorry to hear you missed out on entering the ballot. When the ballot opened, emails were sent to nominated T20 World Cup ticketing accounts who had purchased tickets in advance, alerting that ticket account holder of the opportunity to enter. New ticket purchases were provided a link within their ticket confirmation email. The terms and conditions of the ballot were clear, including the cut-off time and date for the ballot so while we understand that you are frustrated about missing the opportunity, the number of ballot applications exceeded the number of access passes available, so we are unable to accept late entries under any circumstances.

The post-match concert will be one of two performances by Katy Perry on the night, and we hope that you enjoy the whole experience including the pre-match show, watching the two best women’s cricket teams in the world, followed by the post-match concert!
