Twenty20 International matches to be played against New Zealand on June
30 and July 1 in Florida. Reserved chairback seats at the Central
Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill will cost $30 while general
admission tickets to sit or stand on the grass embankment will cost $20.
prices are in similar range to the cost of tickets for the pair of
Twenty20 matches two years ago at the same venue between New Zealand and
Sri Lanka. The prices at that event, The Pearls Cup, were $35 for
reserved and $22 for general admission for the first match which took
place on a Saturday while Sunday ticket prices were $27 for reserved and
$17 for general admission. A total combined attendance figure of 8,600
across two days wound up being the turnout.
