No more senior citizen tickets for Windies/Zimbabwe Test

ticketLocal organizers of the upcoming Windies/Zimbabwe Test Match say they have run out of free tickets for senior citizens.

Persons over 60 were granted the privilege of free tickets for the match but the organizers say they ran out of the quota for that category on the first day of ticket sales.

“Tickets for the upcoming Test Match went on sale on Monday, March 4th at the Windsor Park Stadium (WPS) from 9:00 a.m. and free tickets assigned to persons 60 years and over were finished by the time the booth closed its doors at 4:00 p.m.” the Dominica Cricket Association said in a release. “It is the first time that all tickets in this category were able to move into the hands of cricket fans in one day.”

However free tickets for children 16 years and under are still available.

Paying adults are entitled to a maximum of five free tickets in that grouping.

Tickets sales continue Mondays to Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Tickets cost $15 daily for the East Stand and Grounds and the main stands cost $20 on Days 1 & 2 and $25 on Days 3 & 4.

Season tickets cost $80.

The cost of tickets for Day 5 will be determined on Day 4.

The 2nd Test Match in the International Home Series 2013 between West Indies and Zimbabwe takes place from March 20th to 24th at the WPS and cricket fans are encouraged to get their tickets early in order to secure their seats of choice.

    The quota was reduced that’s why all tickets were sold out in one day

    I think the headline should read something like “Senior Citizens Tickets for Windies/Zimbabwe Test Match Sold Out”

    Good start Dominicans. Now finish the rest of the tickets quickly.

    Show the rest of the Caribbean once again that Dominica takes the hosting of international cricket very seriously.

      its easy to fill up when both seniors and persons under 16 are allotted FREE tickets. let’s see the rest of us buy out the non-free tickets then we can talk.

      A question. What is there to stop “senior” citizens collecting free tickets and selling them to other “seniors” for largan chess below the regular price?

        free tickets usually have wording like “free” or “complimentary” printed on the face. If you want to buy a complimentary ticket then that’s up to you.
