The first round of tickets for the men's Finals Day at Lord's, on August 15, have now sold out with the remainder going on general sale on April 8.

A fifth of the tickets purchased so far have been bought for under-16s, and the current priority window for sales will remain open until February 28.

Only a few hundred tickets remain for the opening fixture at The Kia Oval, where Oval Invincibles take on Welsh Fire on July 17.

The current sales window remains open until 28 February, with tickets still available for all other matches throughout the competition.

Sanjay Patel, managing director of The Hundred, said: "We are pleased the competition has been met so positively by sports fans. Our ambition is always to grow cricket and bring new audiences into the game.

"Our priority will now be in managing the strong demand for tickets alongside our desire to see large numbers of young families attending. Despite a busy summer sport schedule, The Hundred is clearly being viewed as an unmissable summer event.''
