Emirates Skywards is offering tickets for the final of the ICC World Test Championship cricket at The Oval.

Running from 7th to 9th June (well, 11th June but Emirates is only offering the first three days) you can watch India take on Australia in the final of the 2021-2023 World Test Championship cycle to decide who is the best test match team in the world.

ICC World Test Championship Emirates

Standard tickets cost between 12,000 and 15,000 Emirates Skywards miles depending on the day.

Hospitality packages are also available for 35,000 to 40,000 Emirates Skywards miles. However, there is zero information – zilch – on what these actually include or where you will be sat so it is difficult to recommend them.

Remember that Emirates Skywards is a 1:1 transfer partner with American Express Membership Rewards (earned primarily from Preferred Rewards Gold and The Platinum Card). Points should transfer instantly to Emirates although if it is your first transfer there may be a short (hours, not days) delay.

You can find out more about the ICC tickets on this page of the Emirates website.

How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards

How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards (June 2023)

Emirates Skywards does not have a UK credit card.  However, you can earn Emirates Skywards miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.

Cards earning Membership Rewards points include:

SPECIAL OFFER: Until 13th June, the sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card is doubled to 60,000 Membership Rewards points (worth 60,000 Skywards miles) – and you get £200 to spend at Amex Travel too! Apply here.

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Emirates Skywards miles which is an attractive rate.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Emirates Skywards mile. The Gold card earns double points (2 per £1) on all flights you charge to it.

    Paid £85 each for a pair of tickets in the stands on Day 3 (9th June). Would have jumped on the hospitality package but don’t want to undertake the faff of selling the tickets. At 15,000 miles those tickets are definitely selling at a premium.

    • Scott says:

      The Emirates offer is a big premium to original sale price, but starts to look better relative to the secondary market. The days of getting 3p+ per point relative to retail are long gone though…
