The recently established crowd record for the new MCG is set to be broken as Football Federation Australia (FFA) today announced that the final 3,000 tickets for the Powerade Cup match between the Socceroos and Greece will go on sale for the previously fully subscribed event.
From 9am AEST on Thursday May 18, Australian sports fans that missed out on the original ticket offer will be given another opportunity to be on hand to farewell the Socceroos in style before they head off to the FIFA World Cup. The demand for the last tickets is expected to be very high as the first public offer saw tickets sell out in a matter of hours. A total of 3,000 tickets will be released on Thursday, including Category A, B and C tickets, offering great views, as well as some sight restricted seating.
Geoff Parmenter, Head of Marketing and Strategy for the FFA said that the new ticket allocation is made up primarily from new seats that have been added to the MCG. “We have been working closely with the MCC to ensure that as many people as possible will be able to attend the Powerade Cup match and help farewell the Socceroos before they head off to Germany. With the newly added seats, as well as the release of an allocation of sight restricted seating we are hoping to set a crowd record for the new MCG.”
Tickets can be purchased from any Ticketmaster outlet, either online at www.ticketmaster.com.au or over the phone on 1300 136 122 from 9am Thursday May 18.
