Tickets for the July 23 and 25 semi-finals and the July 26 final of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League (CPL) went on sale yesterday at www.cplt20.com.

Prices start at US$12.50 for the semi-finals, and US$15 for the final. Special discount packages for all three games will also be available for the first 48 hours on the CPL website, where fans can also buy tickets to all group stage matches, and find out about further flash sales and great value deals.

The CPL also announced the box office opening dates for all six stadiums. Barbados, St Lucia and St Kitts and Nevis will open on May 27 with Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago to follow on June 15 - and Jamaica on June 18.

Damien O'Donohoe, CEO of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League, said: "CPL is always the hottest ticket in town. We know that all three games will be a sell out at the Queen's Park Oval, so I urge fans to book early to avoid disappointment.

"We can't wait to see who will be battling it out in the finals in front of what is bound to be a fantastic crowd at one of the Caribbean's most iconic venues."

Global superstars, including Kevin Pietersen, Jacques Kallis and Shahid Afridi, will join the Caribbean's finest cricketers, such as Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine and exciting up-and-coming local talent.

Last year's tournament attracted a global audience in excess of 65 million and this year is set to be even higher as fans across the world continue to be drawn to the high-quality action on the pitch and the unique party atmosphere off it.
