The Road To Sidoarjo

Today sees the final of the ASEAN Football Federation Undr 19 final with hosts Indonesia coming up against Vietnam Delta Stadium in Sidoarjon

Officials are expecting a 30,000 plus sell out crowd for the game and any eyes will be on Evan Dimas who has caught the eye for the Indonesian team during the competition.

Hours ahead of the final and fans queuing for tickets for the game turned violent with some setting fire to ticket offices.

Indonesia of course has previous in this. Back in 2011 SEA Games there were similar unruly scenes ahead of the final against Malaysia with ticket offices set fire to and fans killed in crushes outside the stadium.

You would think after organizing events like Asian Cup 07, AFF Cup 08 and 10 and SEA Games 2011 someone, somewhere might have given some thought to how to sell tickets in a safe and secure way but oh no.
