Will you need a TEN if England progresses through the upcoming ICC Men’s India Cricket World Cup?

The semifinals are 15 & 16 November and the final is 19 November, all with an 8:30am GMT start time

As you might have seen in the news, reigning champions England have opened the 2023 ICC Men’s India Cricket World Cup, with a match against New Zealand in Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad

Though England were well beaten by the Black Caps, by some nine wickets, hopes are high that they will progress through the tournament.

And if they do, the excitement will undoubtably grow, meaning venues might want to show some of the latter matches, but are unlikely to have the correct permissions to sell alcohol so early in the morning.

And no one wants to see a repeat of the issues surrounding TENs and the Woman’s World Cup final.

To help, below is a full list of matches and GMT start times, just in case you might want to apply for a temporary events notice, so you can be ready to pull a pint just as the umpire utters ‘play’ at 8:30am from the other side of the world.

Just to be clear, when applying to your local licensing authority for a TEN, at least ten working days notice must be given to the local authority. If there are less than ten days before the event, it is possible to apply for a ‘late’ TEN by giving between five and nine working days notice. The notice period excludes the day the notice is received and the first day of the event.

If you need any help, please contact one of our licensing solicitors who will gladly help you.
