The Powerade Cup match between the Socceroos and European champion Greece at the MCG on 25 May is currently fully subscribed after a huge surge for tickets when they went on general sale to Australian sports fans at 9am this morning. With over 50,000 tickets previously snapped up by the Football Family, MCC members, contractual obligations and other advance offers, the remaining available tickets went within two hours with Australian sports fans desperate to see our national team in action at home on the only occasion before they depart for the FIFA World Cup. "We always expected there would be huge demand for the match," said FFA CEO Mr John O'Neill. "The qualifier on November 16 uniquely united the country like never before and we are looking forward to seeing similar scenes at the MCG as a fitting send off to the team as they embark on our first World Cup campaign in 32 years." While there are currently no tickets available for purchase, FFA is hoping to put a small number of tickets on sale at a later date. These will include tickets that will be released back to the FFA if they are not taken up through various contractual obligations. In addition some further sight restricted seats will also be released. FFA is urging those without tickets to keep an eye on the FFA Greece Information page on the FFA website for more information as it emerges.
