ABFA EXTENDS EARLY BIRD TICKET SPECIALThursday 31st May 2012
The Antigua & Barbuda Football Association (ABFA) has stretched the early-bird discount on tickets for the first home game of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers from one day to four days.
Antigua & Barbuda’s Benna Boys will face Jamaica at Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds on June 12.
Tickets went on sale on Tuesday, at $60 for adult tickets. Regular prices are $75 for adults and $40 for children under 10.
“We want to be as accommodating as possible given that people might not have been able to capitalize on the one-day special for various reasons. With four days instead of three, and with the end of the discount days coinciding with many people’s pay cycle, we expect that people will grasp the opportunity,” General Secretary of the ABFA Gordon Derrick said.
Early-bird tickets are on sale at the ABFA Office, Kennedy’s Liquor World, and Super Power Electronics.
The ABFA has also issued a reminder that, in accordance with FIFA regulations, the sale of tickets at the venue on match day is prohibited.
The Benna vs. Reggae Group A clash will be the second outing for both teams. Antigua & Barbuda will play the USA, in Tampa, Florida, on June 8. Jamaica, meanwhile, will play Guatemala before a home crowd on the same day.
