Tonight’s AFC Asian Cup game between Japan and Jordan at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium has officially sold out.
AFC Asian Cup Australia 2015 Local Organising Committee CEO Michael Brown said the match would be the fourth sell-out of the tournament, following the opening match between Australia and Kuwait in Melbourne, Australia v Korea Republic in Brisbane and China v DPR Korea in Canberra.
“The support that Australians and visitors from across Asia have given this tournament has been phenomenal,” Mr Brown said.
“It is not only the numbers that they have turned out in, it is the colour, noise and passion they have bought to stadiums around Australia that has certainly been a highlight of this AFC Asian Cup.
“To Australians who have not yet been to a game I can only say, get out to a stadium and experience it for yourself. The quality of the football on the pitch and the atmosphere created in the stands has been sensational and will continue as we enter the knockout stages later this week.”
The Socceroos will face China PR in the Quarter-Finals of the AFC Asian Cup at Brisbane Stadium on Thursday 22 January (8.30pm local kick off). Click here to purchase tickets.
