With the Ageas Bowl’s Royal London ODI between England and Pakistan now less than two weeks away, England captain Eoin Morgan is looking forward to the upcoming 50-over series ahead of this summer’s ICC Cricket World Cup.
Tickets for next Saturday’s (11th May) highly-anticipated 50-over clash have been in extremely high demand, with fewer than 250 tickets now remaining for the fixture, and the bumper crowd will no doubt create an electric atmosphere as England begin their preparation for their biggest summer yet against Sarfaraz Ahmed’s side.
All remaining tickets and hospitality packages for England v Pakistan at the Ageas Bowl can be purchased online via www.ageasbowl.com, over the phone on 0844 847 1863 or in person from the Ageas Bowl Ticketing and Membership Office during normal working hours.
Eoin Morgan said:
‘The Ageas Bowl certainly holds a special place in my heart, we’ve had great success here and it’s a great place to come. Every international I’ve played here has been an amazing atmosphere.
“The identity of the team is that we play positive, aggressive, smart cricket and we give absolutely everything when we go out onto the field and that’s identifiable in every game that we play.’
A host of free, family-friendly activities will be available on-site at next weekend’s fixture, all of which can be enjoyed for free, with a climbing wall, giant inflatables, laser quest, power-hitting net, catching challenge and kids coaching, as well as post-match entertainment all featuring.
Similar activities have been installed on-site for England’s Internationals at the venue for the previous five years, and the provision demonstrates the Ageas Bowl’s continued efforts to introduce International cricket to the next generation of fans. The venue was recognised for its outstanding family experience at last December’s ECB’s Business of Cricket Awards, taking home the ‘Welcome Families Award’ for its commitment to delivering unforgettable family days out.
The Ageas Bowl’s Head of Customer Experience, Greig Stewart said:
‘We’re committed to inspiring the next generation of cricket fans and offering a whole range of family-friendly activities once again at this summer’s ODI highlights this. These activities will help offer a fantastic experience to all families visiting our venue for what’s sure to be a thrilling spectacle.’
A range of food and drink concessions will also be available for spectators to enjoy once again with an array of festival-style street food stalls installed at the ground rated as having the best food and beverage offering at England matches by the ECB in 2018. The outlets will provide a varied offering, including healthy, vegetarian and gluten free options as well as child portions, while accepting contactless card payments meaning it’s never been easier to purchase food and drink at the ground.
Situated an hour or less away from London, Brighton, Portsmouth and Reading, the Ageas Bowl is easily accessible for anyone living in the South of England. With excellent transport links from all major train stations and ferry terminals in the area, as well as a Park & Ride Scheme, it couldn’t be easier to get to and from the ground.
