Certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but if you're in to watching cricket, this is an excellent deal - 55% off of two tickets to watch England vs Sri Lanka at the Rose Bowl near Southampton.

The match is being played on 19th June 2011.

"The home of Hampshire County Cricket Club and friend of waterfowl across the south coast, the Rosebowl is a modern, fully-equipped stadium in the west end of Southampton. A 25,000 all-seater arena, it sees its international debut this summer in the third test between England and Sri Lanka."

Somebody who has never been to cricket before by the looks of it.
These were the prices in the late 80's early 90's and then Sky came along just like footy and the pricing went crazy.
As the Rosebowl are finding out now they can not command £55 a ticket + fees for a test match v Sri Lanka in these financial times.
All test grounds must be losing out financially compared to what they have bid to stage them.
#4
Yep its a shame - and look what you can pay for a ticket at Lords.

Having said that, by today's standards this is a very good deal, and Sunday is day 4 so weather permitting should be a full and good day's play.
#5
Living near the rose bowl , its a top new ground with decent facilities so will definately be a good day out. Have seen many one dayers there and the T20's final day its good even when it rained
#6
Further to the above comments, I can confirm that these tickets are for the Sunday only.
#7
Very expensive, discount helps but these are what the prices should be for day 5 of a test so lukewarm from me. IF the game does go to a 5th day it could be concluded very quickly or if the forecast is poor there might be long rain delays. Not much fun imo but test cricket bores the pants off me 90% of the time anyway. Would rather see a ODI or T20 any day.

So its lucky that these are for Day 4 then and not Day 5 then
#9
standard practice for day 4 tickets to be at a lower price, day 5 are usually even cheaper if purchased on the day
suspended#10
Im still a test cricket fan, just not cricket 20/20 to me. Gotta say that its ridiculous the price you have to pay to watch one day of a five day test match.

£55 is supposed to be a bargain??
Sorry rosebowl that's a joke considering its only cost 40 AUD for the MCG on boxing day.... reality check required! ps.... sorry for the rant, rip off britain strikes again!
#13
At least if they can't sell the tickets in advance then the days of deciding "think I'll go and watch the test match today", going to ground and paying to go in may be back!

A good deal in the context of what the original price was, but quite frankly they should never be that high in the first place. Thanks to the money-grabbing ECB, Test Cricket is going to die on its **** playing to half-empty soulless stadiums like the Rose Bowl and Cardiff while they ignore the traditional Test grounds - Old Trafford, Edgbaston and Headingly - which sellout every time.

40 AUD is about £25. That's the same price per ticket as these are. I'd rather watch a boxing day test at the MCG aswell, but its not on this weekend...

Remember £50 is for 2 tickets

Was just trying to put the price into context really.... bet the rosebowl beer will be cheaper actually!

did that include flights?

Again, I guess it's down to personal preferences and opinions - £25 for a full day's cricket seems cheap when compared to paying £40 to watch a Premiership football match, (or even more for an international !)
#20
No wonder empty seats is becoming the norm for all but Ashes cricket.

Original price a joke and even with the discount excessive. Suppose that is what happens when you sell your soul to the devil.

Hope those who attend enjoy but I will stick with Radio 4.

Yes, hotel as well! Lovely place on Flinders Street!

Well I'm sure you'll enjoy Woman's Hour and The Archers, but what's that got to do with cricket?

Unless you meant Radio 5 Live...

'Test Cricket is going to die on its **** playing to half-empty soulless stadiums like the Rose Bowl and Cardiff while they ignore the traditional Test grounds - Old Trafford, Edgbaston and Headingly - which sellout every time.'

The use of other stadiums is purely down to the fact that grounds like Edgbaston and Old Trafford had taken it for granted that they were going to get Test Match cricket and invested very little in the facilities. Competition for test match cricket has ensured improvements at all the larger grounds and this can only be good for those who pay to watch,

And calling Cardiff souless?? You obviously werent there on the last day of the first ashes test when the Aussies were here last!!
#27
Oh Cricket how boring!
#28
The Rose Bowl is a lovely stadium. Saw Bangladesh play the Windies in an ODI here many years ago and had a great time. Atmosphere in a Test and between these two teams will be different though.

If you knew anything about cricket on the radio you would know its on Radio 4 longwave (analogue) or 5 live sports extra (digital), not "ordinary" 5 live.

TMS is on R4 LW and R5SX. It's not on R5L.

For that price, I'd want to open the batting!

Just because it was an exciting finish to the game doesn't make it a good venue for Test match cricket. I guess the poor attendances for the Sri Lanka game and the fuss over the Windies having to play in Cardiff rather than Lords prove the point.

Don't get me wrong, they're fine stadiums for ODIs and 20twenty but not Tests - especially at those prices!
#33
For day 4 at Lords, the prices were from £30. I know there was a threat of rain, but you could decide on the day. You might end up watching a half-day at the Rose Bowl if the match ends early.
#35
I paid £60 for a ticket some time last year, wish I had waited now as I could have spent half of that to sit in the rain.
#36
Now expired... let's just hope England do well !!

Did anyone buy this?

You need to phone the ticket line - 0800 197 4404 - and say that you have a Groupon voucher.
