Tickets Please! (Please!) (Pretty Please!)
(Although at the price I paid, perhaps it should be called a Scarborough train Unfair!)
(But I digress!)
(And... no more Scarborough Fair puns!)
Anyways... having paid almost £300 for travel and accommodation, I was keen to get my tickets for the games. I know women's ODIs don't sell out very often, but when you've paid that much, you don't take your chances... right?
So I toddled off to the web site advertised on the poster, only to see the following:
"Tickets are not available online."
Yes, you read that right - it's 2014, and tickets are not available online!
But at least (the web site tells me) there is a "Ticket Hotline" open during "normal office hours".
So I called the ticket hotline today, only to be told that tickets are not available over the phone either. "You can buy them on the gate!" I was helpfully informed.
Have I landed in the middle of an episode of Fool Britannia?
We're having a cricket match - would you like some tickets?
WELL YOU CAN'T HAVE THEM! HA! HA!! HA!!! HA!!!! HA!!!!!
I officially despair.
