The Football Association of Singapore has announced that the tickets allocated for Filipinos for the second leg of the Asean Football Federation Suzuki Cup semifinals on Wednesday at the Jalan Besar Stadium have been sold out.
Supporters of the visiting team were given two days (Tuesday and Wednesday) to buy 375 tickets for the Philippines-Singapore return leg after their scoreless draw on Saturday at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.
But just a few minutes after the sale started at the game venue at noon on Monday, the Singapore FA announced that the allocation was already snapped up by away supporters.
“[TICKET UPDATE] All tickets allocated for AWAY (Philippines) fans are SOLD OUT!!!!,” read the FAS posting on its Twitter and Facebook accounts a little half past noon.
According to the Singapore FA, the Jalan Besar Stadium has a seating capacity of 7,500 - five percent of which was allocated to home fans.
Philippine supporters who lined up for tickets were allowed to buy up to four tickets at a time. Singapore is home to a huge population of Filipino workers, most of them domestic helpers.
Gallery seats were sold for worth S$10 each, or around P330.
The winner will advance to the finals opposite either defending champion Malaysia or Thailand, which played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their own semifinal tie.
