The 2023 Women's Ashes has broken the record for ticket sales for England women's fixtures.

Just 100 days out from the start of what promises to be a "blockbuster" Ashes series, BBC Sports revealed 55,000 tickets have already been sold, more than all of England's games in 2022.

The England Women's team will take on Australia at Lord’s, the Kia Oval (London), Edgbaston (Birmingham), The Ageas Bowl (Southhampton), Trent Bridge (Nottingham), the Seat Unique Stadium (Bristol), and Cooper Associates County Ground (Taunton). 

The women’s contest will start one week after the men’s begins with a five-day Test match at Trent Bridge.

The multi-format series will consist of one test match (worth four points), three ODIs and three Vitality IT20s (each worth two points).

The test match will be England Women’s first over five days on home soil. 

England captain Heather Knight’s team and Ben Stokes’ men’s side will each be attempting to regain the Ashes on home soil.

“I think everyone’s super excited for the men’s Ashes, the way Ben and his team are playing, the excitement around. This is certainly going to be a blockbuster series.

“Hopefully we can play some really entertaining cricket as well and both have lots of success.

“I think what we’ve started to do as a team, we’ve started to build something, a real sort of identity of how we want to play things and how we want to move things forward, (to) keep pushing the boundaries of the game.

“That’s a real focus for us – to entertain and play exciting cricket – so I certainly think it’s going to be a blockbuster series.”

The women's side will have their work cut out for them, coming up against an Aussie outfit that is being labelled one of the best teams in women's sports.

Knight said she believes there is a “real momentum” behind women’s sports.

Knight, who plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore Women in the WPL, said: “I think there’s a real momentum behind women’s sport at the moment.
