15,000 tickets for Indonesia-Thailand aff finals to be sold offline

A total of 15,000 tickets for the first leg of the final round of the ASEAN Football Federation between Indonesia and Thailand will be sold offline.

“The tickets to be sold offline are third category tickets, worth Rp100,000 each. The tickets are distributed in Jakarta and Bogor (West Java),” the secretary general of the All Indonesia Football Association (PSSI), Ade Wellington, said at the PSSI office here on Saturday.

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.

The offline sales of tickets will be done simultaneously, starting at 8am on Tuesday. “It is hoped that by selling the tickets at army headquarters, ticket scalpers would think twice before operating,” Ade added.

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.

Kiostix.com plans to start selling tickets at 12.00 on Sunday, while real tickets would be distributed at Mall F(X) Sudirman from Tuesday to Wednesday.

Regarding their prices, PSSI has fixed at Rp500,000 for Category I tickets, Rp300,000 for Category II and Rp100,000 for Category III tickets.

PSSI will donate Rp50,000 from each ticket sold to earthquake victims in Aceh province.

“We plan to donate Rp50,000 from each ticket sold for our brothers who were affected by the recent natural disaster in Aceh,” Ade said.

The first leg of the final round of the AFF Cup 2016 is scheduled for Wednesday (Dec 14) at Pakansari Stadium in Cibinong, Bogor, West Java, at 7pm.

The Indonesian “Garuda” national team moved into the final round, after playing to a 2-2 draw against the Vietnamese team on Wednesday evening.

On Saturday (December 3, 2016), Garuda defeated the Vietnamese team 2-1 in the first leg of the semifinal, which was held at Pakansari Stadium, Cibinong sub-district, West Java Province.

The second leg of the semifinal took place in My Dinh stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam.

With the 2-2 draw, Indonesia won 4-3 on aggregate.

Previously, Thailand emerged as the winner of group A, with Garuda as the runner up.
