AFF Cup 2018: Vietnam-Cambodia match tickets sold out

The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) has confirmed that all 14,000 tickets for the match between Vietnam and Cambodia in Group A of the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup 2018 have been sold.

The match will take place at Hang Day Stadium on November 24 instead of My Dinh National Stadium, which is preparing for the opening ceremony of the National Sports Games on November 25.

However, according to VFF General Secretary Le Hoai Anh, the federation only sold 14,000 tickets compared to the capacity of 20,000 seats of Hang Day Stadium in Hanoi.

The reason is the quality of the stadium is downgraded. Besides, it has large billboards in D Stand so the VFF didn’t sell tickets for this area.

Tickets are sold for 100,000 VND (4.3 USD), 200,000 VND (8.7 USD) and 300,000 VND (13 USD).

Fans often set off flares at Hang Day Stadium in the national premier league, so the VFF said security would be enhanced for the match.

In the tournament, Vietnam beat Laos 3-0 in their first match of Group A at Laos National Stadium in Vientiane on November 8, and then Malaysia 2-0 in the second match at Hanoi-based My Dinh National Stadium on November 16.

On November 20, Vietnam drew 0-0 with Myanmar in an away match of Group A held at Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon.
