The ICC Cricket World Cup is one big cricketing event which catches the eye of South Asia, given two of the biggest Cricket teams are here, Pakistan and India. Now, as the ICC Cricket World Cup is all set to start by the end of the month, frequent flyers have a shot at earning themselves some World Cup tickets in exchange for their miles.
Emirates is offering tickets to the ICC World Cup which will be held between May 30, 2019, through July 14, 2019, for the members of their Skywards frequent flyer programme. You can log into the Skywards website, and redeem your miles for these tickets, starting at a minimum of 4500 Skywards miles per ticket.
Here is the number of miles you require for each match.
Like you can see, most matches are priced between 4500 and 6000 Emirates Skywards miles.
One of the more prominent fixtures, which is the India Pakistan match at Old Trafford, is for 25000 Skywards miles. Tickets for this match, which is sold out, are going for at least INR 43,000 on second-hand trading websites.
So, this is an excellent value for those who want to be at Manchester for this legendary match.
These tickets are coming from the sponsor quota, so we do not know how many of these exist and what category of the tickets are these, but each ticket redemption is equivalent to one ticket only.
Remember, American Express is the exclusive transfer partner for Emirates Skywards in India. You can transfer Membership Rewards points in Ratio 2:1 from the following Cards of American Express:
- American Express Platinum Charge Card

Emirates also partners with Standard Chartered to offer the Standard Chartered Emirates World Card.
If you have miles but no tickets for the upcoming World Cup, this may be a great way to redeem some miles for tickets. What games would you buy tickets for with your Emirates Miles?
