Another completely random offer, but may be of interest to some – the Oval has instituted a new ‘online supporter’ program. By paying a flat annual fee, you get first crack at tickets. (Well, tied for first, with the actual Cricket Club members).
It’s not a bad deal, and with the recent resurgance of cricket popularity (thanks Ashes!), this gives you a good way of getting your shot at the international tests. Check the website for details.
