JAKARTA - 15,000 tickets for the first leg of the final round of the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) between Indonesia and Thailand will be sold offline.
"The tickets are distributed in Jakarta and Bogor," the Secretary General of Indonesia Football Association (PSSI), Ade Wellington, said at the PSSI office, Jakarta on Saturday (10/11).
PSSI chairman, Lieutenant General Edy Rahmayadi approved the use of military means in ticket sales this time. He noted that 10,000 of the tickets will be sold at the Permanent Garrison Headquarter I, located beside the Army Strategic Reserve Command (Kostrad) Headquarters in Gambir, Central Jakarta, and the other 5,000 will be sold at the 0621 District Military Command headquarter in Cibinong, Bogor District, West Java.
"In garrison Gambir will be provided 10 thousand sheets of tickets for sale to the audience. It is hoped that by selling the tickets at army headquarters, ticket scalpers would think twice before operating. Offline sales of tickets will be done simultaneously, starting at 8 am on Tuesday.," said Ade.
Regarding online ticket sales, he said the AFF, through Thai Ticket Major, has recommended Kiostix.com. There will be 13,000 online tickets under category one and two, offered to Indonesian fans to watch their national team.
