Tickets for ALL ICC Cricket World Cup games available for Emirates Skywards miles

Tickets for ALL of the ICC Cricket World Cup games have popped up for redemption with Emirates Skywards miles.  

(EDIT: Emirates has fixed the website bug and you can now redeem)

I am not a cricket fan, by any means, so I can’t really comment on the value.  I assume that Afghanistan v New Zealand will not be sold out – although 6,000 miles may still be a good deal – but I’d guess that England v West Indies is well worth 15,000 miles.

These are not hospitality packages, for clarity.  They are standard admission tickets.

Games are taking place across England and Wales and start at 4,500 Skywards miles per ticket (Afghanistan v Sri Lanka in Cardiff).  The competition starts on 30th May and ends on 14th July.

How to earn Emirates Skywards miles via UK credit cards

Emirates no longer has its own UK credit card.  However, you can earn Emirates Skywards points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.  These are:

American Express Preferred Rewards Gold – 10,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

The Platinum Card from American Express – 30,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

American Express Rewards credit card – 5,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Emirates Skywards miles.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Emirates Skywards miles.

  1. Are they platinum price band tickets?

  2. babyg says:

    Does anybody know if it one ticket or a pair of tickets?

    • With the football it is always per ticket. This seems the same.

      • David D says:

        You can select up to two tickets, but can order one. Miles given is per ticket. I’m still having issues trying to book the tickets. The same technical error is appearing. I have emailed the Skywards events team again to try and get it sorted.

        • I believe most people have been able to order 2. If you can only select 1 without there being an error, I suspect there is only 1 ticket left.

          • David D says:

            Tried both numbers of tickets, across two separate accounts. Neither worked. Will await contact from Emirates to see if it might be possible.

    • rams1981 says:

      Price is per ticket. I bought a pair to one match and a single to another all using my dad’s points. Didn’t need my mum’s in the end as friends couldn’t make eng vs SA on Thursday

      • Arnie_B says:

        Has anyone received an email informing them how to pick up their tickets? We are at the Oval this Sunday but nothing from Emirates yet!

        • I have the same problem. Have been emailing emirates all week and no reply. Anyone been to a game yet?

        • Akhil Gupta says:

          Let us know how it goes – I have one booked for next Thursday at Trent Bridge but haven’t gotten a confirmation – just a request email which says we should get a 2nd email. I called them and they said they will send an email – but said they can’t phone that department up – bad customer service!

          • Arnie_B says:

            Got the email yesterday from Emirates. Hopefully we are all set!

        • akhil gupta says:

          Great Arnie!

          Did you collect them ok at the Oval?

  3. Finals tickets are sold out now 🙁
