ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

AT A GLANCE
Dates: 30 May 2019 - 14 Jul 2019
Destinations: England, Wales
The 12th edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup kicks off in England and Wales on 30 May 2019.
After initially hosting the first three World Cup tournaments (in 1975, 1979 and 1983), England has only hosted one other ICC Cricket World Cup since, in 1999. With the flagship event of the cricket calendar returning to the “home of cricket,” this is one event for your sport travel bucket list.
In 2019, the ICC Cricket World Cup will feature a streamlined list of only ten competing teams (down from 14 teams at the 2011 and 2015 tournaments). Comprising of the eight top-ranking one-day teams, with the final two spots to be claimed by associate teams in the 2018 qualifiers, this paired-down event will mean stiffer competition than ever before as every participating team will have more of a chance to claim victory.
Since its inauguration in 1975, the ICC Cricket World Cup is one of the world’s most-viewed sports events. Our ICC Cricket World Cup packages will give you an opportunity to catch the action live in England and Wales between 30 May and 15 July 2019. Listen to the crowds roar as another six hits the boundary. Watch pure athleticism come alive with thrilling catches in the covers. Be there.

England has something for everyone to enjoy, from exciting nightlife to vivid art galleries and stately museums. Outdoor enthusiasts and hobbyist historians have plenty to keep themselves entertained, especially during the glorious English summer. Wander around the hallowed streets of intellectual Oxford, explore the ruggedly majestic Lake District or marvel at the mystery of Stonehenge. Wherever you find yourself in England, there is always a friendly corner pub with a welcoming brew waiting for you.
Wales in the summertime is similar to Italy. This slow-paced nation features beautiful beaches to explore, cascading waterfalls to discover and a diversity of wildlife to encounter. Get your camera ready to capture the variety of Welsh birdlife or get your binoculars out to view whales, basking sharks and dolphins. Be sure to take in your fair share of historic castles, and more-than-your-share of Bara Brith, a thoroughly delicious traditional Welsh bread. Nearby Snowdonia National Park features breathtaking views and is accessible by hiking (for the fit) or by train (for the enthusiastic).
