The 2019 ICC World Cup is less than six months away. Nations across the world will be competing to become the next champions in world cricket. And this time, the fight is going to take place on the grounds where the game was born. England and Wales are going to host the world cup next year. Millions of fans will be flying to England soon in order to watch their teams play. While sports tourism has not always been extremely popular, in the last decade the number of people attending out-of-area sporting events has drastically increased. People are now travelling far and wide just to attend their favourite sporting events.

Under the world's spotlight, the host country has to be on its best behaviour. Over one billion people tune in throughout the month-long tournament. Host cities have also recently completed infrastructural upgrades to accommodate the influx of travellers, and they often offer special promotions to ticket holders. So these events truly provide ample scope for travelling. 

England and Wales have already taken a number of steps to improve their hosting facilities for the world cup. According to their estimation they are expecting about a million tourists throughout the world cup. England has always been a top travel destination. Their age old infrastructure, the beautiful Buckingham palace, Big Ben, London Bridge and the British Museum, attract visitors from all over the world. Trafalgar Square, St Paul’s Cathedral, Oxford University, the war time tunnels and cities like Westminster, Manchester, Southampton and Liverpool are places one should definitely not miss. 

In Bangladesh, Trips N Tours Limited is one of the leading multi-sport tour operators, running supporters’ trips to major worldwide sporting events. Starting out as a high-street travel agency in 2013, the company gradually began to specialize in sports travel. Trips N Tours Limited is an integrated tourism business, operating in 180 countries with 31 major source markets. They are also the official travel agency for the ICC World Cup 2019. 

ICC World Cup 2019 is the 12th edition of the cricket world cup scheduled from May 30 to July 14, 2019. With the arrangement of 11 venues in over 10 different cities, the players and supporters can enjoy a delightful tour of England during their stay.
