Asian Cup Final Ticket Sales

Amid concerns over a low turnout at tomorrow's final orgainsers and sponsors have been pulling out the stops to boost the attendance. Indonesian Idol finalists will be crooning before the game starts which will ensure better takings for the pub nearby. Judging by the responses on a local phone in show yesterday people weren't too interested.

WSG are reported to have snapped up 10,000 lower priced tickets for sponsors while the Saudis have ordered 15,000 to be distributed among 'football fans and pesantran.'

As of yesterday between 25,000 and 30,000 tickets had been sold.

In Palembang cheap tickets for the 3/4th place play off have been offered at a sharp discount to supporters of local club Sriwijaya while fans of Japan and South Korea get to pay 100,000 rupiah. Korean factories in the Palembang area have bought tickets for their employees and family to attend the game.
