SACA Members' 2019 Ashes Tour of England
SACA is pleased to announce an official tour for the UK Ashes 2019, attending Lord's and Headingley Tests.
Welcome to the official SACA tour for the UK Ashes 2019, operated by Cricket Australia Travel Office (CATO). SACA and the team at CATO have spent a great deal of time putting together what we believe is a fantastic itinerary for SACA Members which will not only capture the essence of an historic Ashes Series, but also feature some of the UK's captivating history and culture between Test matches.
Tour participants will enjoy priority reserved seating at the Second and Third Ashes Tests, as well as entry to pre-match functions in London and Leeds.
The tour will commence in London on 13 August 2019 and conclude in Leeds on 27 August 2019 (15 days) at at cost of $8,290* per person twin share, and $2,132* single supplement.
Highlights of the official SACA Ashes experience include:
Official Priority Match Tickets
SACA has secured guaranteed tickets at both Lord's and Headingley. For the 2015 Ashes Series in the UK, there was hardly a spare seat to be found at any venue so it is vitally important that you secure guaranteed tickets through the SACA travel program. It is also important to be wary of unauthorised ticket on-sellers and/or scalpers.
Between Tests, travellers will enjoy guided tours of Windsor, Oxford, Stratford-Upon-Avon and York.
The Tour includes 14 nights of accommodation in minimum four (4) star superior standard hotels, including breakfast daily, as outlined in the attached itinerary. For detailed hotel information, please visit www.cricket.com.au/travel
CATO Tour Director
An experienced CATO Tour Director will travel with the Tour from start to finish. The CATO Tour Director will be available 24-hours a day for Tour participants to ensure that arrangements run smoothly and that all participants have a memorable time.
Maximum 40 guests per tour
The SACA Tour will be limited to a maximum of 40 participants to ensure that our Tour Director can cater to each individual tour participant's requirements while on Tour. SACA Tours generally attract a mix of couples, friends and solo travellers and everyone will be appropriately catered for throughout the itinerary.
Private match strategy sessions
Participate in a minimum of two private group sessions with Cricket Australia team management and/or former Test greats. A wonderful opportunity to explore team tactics, selections, player form and analyse the state of play as each 2019 Ashes Test unfolds. Timing of these sessions will be provided in advance of your departure however they are likely to be held after play on Days 1, 2 or 3 of a Test.
Official Ashes Functions in London and Leeds
Prior to Day 1 of each Test, CATO will host an official match preview function featuring former cricketing greats, current players and/or Cricket Australia team management. These functions are an opportunity to join fellow travellers and hear the latest insights into the contest that will unfold during the Test. In keeping with the prominence of the Lord's Test, the function will be a sit down three-course dinner staged in the ballroom of the fabulous Park Plaza Westminster Hotel. For the Headingley Test, the function will be a cocktail-style affair.
