Oh, here's another thing for you to consider. I bought a SEASON ticket for the Canberra Cavalry in the new Australia Baseball League this summer. Even though I live about 2.5 hours drive from Canberra. That cost me $140 for 20 games. Here's something for nothing CA, I will not be buying tickets to the cricket at all next summer if the prices are the same or higher than this season. I will be buying another season ticket to the baseball, and quite possibly travelling to Sydney or melbourne to watch the Cavalry play as well. Even though they are currently last on the ladder. You are losing fans in a great hurry. Do you wonder why? Ask the regular fans what we think about the game, stop listening to the marketing bods in their advertising offices, get out of Jolimont and visit the suburbs. You are killing the game and the love of the game.

I'm a pom and I agree with all the comments above. How about at least letting those who attended the previous days get free entry for the final day? I live in NZ and I can tell you they wouldn't be charging to get in under these circumstances. Even in the UK there would be free entry. Come on CA...get with it.

I was keen to take my 11yr old son to see a possible few hours of cricket at a discounted price. He was so excited to go and now i i have to tell him that due to greedy CA we wont be going. WE are hoping that this selfishness may still stop so he can experience watching world cricket live.

There is no doubt that in years past this situation would have lead to a free entry day. Current CA or ground management is clearly focussed only on one thing - $$s. However if they continue to abuse the sports fans like this they will find it backfires on them. A shameful announcement requiring an about-face.

I agree. My 4 year old daughter has really got into the cricket this year and every time we are in the city she points out the MCG. Not going to pay for a whole day as she has an attention span of about 5 minutes so thought Day 4 would be a great intro to live cricket and the 'G. Guess she'll miss out and I'll take her see the AFL instead.

Thought I would take my two kids for the hour or so of cricket on offer tomorrow but what's the point ax it will put me back a couple of hundred including a flag or two. How often can you say it would be cheaper to go to the movies?

yep. spot on above. I have a 7 yr old potential future paying customer I'd love to take to see a couple of hours of his Australian heroes. This is a great opportunity for CA and MCC.

There is a Lesson too be learnt here for Cricket Fans NEVER buy a Day 4 Ticket until Day 4 when u know there is gonna be a Decent amount of Cricket played. If u purchase your ticket in advance u are risking paying for a Full Days Cricket and getting on 5 overs. If Australia Loose 4 wickets tommrow in 5 overs there will not be a refund. What a Greedy thing Cricket Australia have done.

I agree with all the aforementioned sentiments. Me and me friends pre-purchased our tickets.. $31 each, and we might not even get 31 minutes of cricket. Boxing Test = failure, on multiple fronts.

This was to be my first ever attendance of a cricket match at the MCG or any other ground in Australia and my dad (72) is visiting from South Africa so i bouight ticklest as a treat for day 4 @ $90 each including Ticketec costs. Surely we paid to see a days sporting event (regardless of who wins), NOT a lottery ticket as to whether the event will actually take place for the day. Shocking! I wont be buying tickets ever again.
