Anyone got a spare day 1 and/or dayAshes ticket? Please!

Hi All,

Like a lot of people,I missed out on buying a ticket for the Ashes.

I'll be in Perth (first time!) long enough to see either day 1 or day 2 (hopefully both days) and wonder if anyone has a spare ticket if they would consider selling it on to me-the beers would be on me!

I hope this post isn't against Tripadvisor rules-no harm meant.

Even if I draw a blank it ain't the end of the world-looking forward enormously to seeing Perth,Aice,Adelaide,Melbourne,Sydney and then NZ!

All the best,

Si.

Wow Si, I think you're adding a new dimension to the word 'hopeful'. My advice would be to book yourself a nice comfortable hotel on one of our beautiful beaches, stock up the icebox with your beers and watch the tests live (I understand) on local television during daylight hours our time. I think most of us who missed out on tickets will be doing the same.

Hi Si90,

you may want to try ebay.com.au which had tickets available last time I looked.

Thanks for the quick replies-sound advice as per on Tripadvisor.

Trying to avoid online touts so will wait until I'm in beautiful Perth and then see how my luck goes!

All the best,

Zippy I know that Si already knows this so this isn't for his information - but yours and anyone else who may be thinking the same thing -the ACC has said that any tickets sold on Ebay above face value price will have their bar codes cancelled and the holders will be denied entry to the match.

They have already cancelled over 600 tickets that have been found to have been sold that way.

So no I wouldn't b looking on Ebay.
