England are gunning to win The Ashes for the first time since 2015 after comprehensive defeats in last year’s series in Australia – and initial tickets have been released for the tests in June and July 2023.
The ballot for some of the matches opened on September 21, 2022, allowing fans to see the competition take place in England for the first time since a 2-2 series draw in the men’s edition allowed Australia to retain the trophy in 2019.
“There are few events more special in English sport than a home Ashes series,” said England legend Clare Connor, speaking ahead of the series in her role as the interim chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board.
Here are the venues that will be hosting The Ashes in 2023 and what we know about ticket sales and prices.
