"More than 750,000 tickets have been sold to date, well on the way to a predicted total attendance of more than a million," it added.
The tournament gets under way on February 14. The match between India and Pakistan on February 15 has already broken records with the tickets sold out in just 20 minutes long time ago.
"While there are plenty of good seats left to great matches, organisers are urging fans to get their tickets now to avoid disappointment," ICC said.
ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: "The ICC Cricket World Cup is on track to be the most open and competitive tournament ever. I'd urge everyone who can to get out and support their team."
