TICKETS for Sunday’s Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 game between the Guyana Amazon Warriors and Trinbago Knight Riders are almost sold out. This is according to a source close to the local ticketing office, located at 238 Camp and Quamina Streets, Georgetown.

“Look, as we speak tickets for the game on Sunday are almost sold out. The only tickets available, as we speak, are tickets for the Red Stand,” the source told Chronicle Sport late yesterday afternoon.

Predictably, there was a huge demand by cricket-lovers over the past week, and according to the source, tickets for the game on Saturday between the Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs are also moving at a  fast rate.

“The demand has been extraordinary so far but there are still limited tickets available for the three other games. We have about 10 to 12 percent of tickets available for Saturday’s game,” the source said.

After Sunday’s game, Guyana will host the playoff matches, which will see the top four teams from the group stage battle it out on September 11 and 12. Tickets for those two games are also moving at a fast rate.

The costs for tickets for those two playoff matches remain the same with the Red and Green Stands ($5 000), Orange Stand ($3 000) and Grass Mound ($2 500).

Meanwhile, car passes for the national stadium tarmac for this weekend games are sold out.

Meanwhile, the four teams have sealed their spots in the playoffs, with the Guyana Amazon Warriors again among the four teams. They have made the playoff stages of the Hero CPL every season to date.

The other teams are the Trinbago Knight Riders, Jamaica Tallawahs and the St Kitts Patriots.

The Amazon Warriors have played in three of the five finals to date but are yet to lift the title.
