SHOCK! Singaporeans Queue Overnight For Local Football Match

SINGAPORE, 16 July 2011: All tickets for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Qualifying Round Two first-leg match between Singapore and Malaysia have been sold out on the first day of sales at the Jalan Besar Stadium South Gate.

With a queue forming at around 10.30pm the night before, it was no surprise when the ticketing booth at the South Gate of Jalan Besar Stadium had the ‘SOLD OUT’ sign displayed at 2.20pm this afternoon. Fans of all ages came together and stood in line, eagerly awaiting their chance to purchase the match tickets while some others were singing and cheering in unison as they waited for their turn.

Ridzal Saat, FAS Deputy Director for Marketing and Competitions said: “The queue started late on Friday night at around 11.30pm and the crowd progressively grew bigger as it neared the 8am sale time. By 2.20pm, all tickets on sale were sold out and we would like to thank the fans for coming out to support the Lions. It would be a wonderful sight to see Jalan Besar Stadium in a sea of red and we would like to encourage all fans to come decked in red to support our Singapore National Team in the match against Malaysia next Saturday.”

LOL, the passion is still burning... LOL
Always read the fine print in your ticket: "Patrons are advised that cans, bottles, banners, flags, poles, airhorns, whistles, drums, musical instruments, laser beams and pets are prohibited from being brought into the stadium etc...".
And in bold print "Early Bird Sale $15 Grandstand".
