Over 11,000 tickets have been sold in the first 48 hours for the Socceroos’ World Cup Qualifier at the Adelaide Oval against Tajikistan on 24 March 2016 ahead of tickets going on sale to the general public at 11am ACDT this morning.
Members of the Football Family took advantage of the priority period, snapping up tickets to see the Asian Champions in action for the Socceroos’ first World Cup qualifier in Adelaide in 11 years.
Football Federation Australia (FFA) CEO David Gallop said the impressive uptake in ticket sales in the opening two days highlights the large number of passionate football fans in South Australia along with the increasing appeal of Socceroos matches as one of Australia’s hottest ticketing items.
“To have over 11,000 tickets already sold for this crucial World Cup qualifier illustrates the high level of support the Socceroos have in South Australia, which has a rich football history,” Gallop said.
“This early surge in ticket sales points towards a bumper crowd and fantastic atmosphere at Adelaide Oval to cheer the Socceroos on in March, so we encourage the South Australian sporting public to get behind Ange and the team.”
“With the match being played on the Thursday night before Good Friday, all eyes will be on Adelaide Oval, a venue that has proven to produce one of the best atmospheres in the country. It promises to be a great night for the people of South Australia and the visitors from interstate.”
General public tickets go on sale at 11am ACDT today with prices starting at just $25 for adults and only $49 for a family ticket.
