he Football Association of Ireland can confirm that the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Play-Off Second Leg between Republic of Ireland and Denmark on Tuesday, November 14 in Aviva Stadium is officially sold out.
Premium tickets that were reserved for the public sale on Friday, October 20 sold out in less than five minutes. Should more tickets become available through Denmark not taking up their full allocation, they will go on public sale.
All 2017/18 FAI Season Ticket holders have been catered for due to this Play-Off game being part of their current package. The pre-sale period was an option for FAI Season Ticket holders to purchase extra tickets, although that allocation sold out in seven minutes.
The best way to secure seats for all Republic of Ireland Men’s Senior home games is through the FAI Season Ticket. With a price freeze for the last two years, the affordable package – which starts at €130 for adults – means that supporters will be there through it all for the big matches.
This year’s FAI Season Ticket campaign was a record-breaking one with almost 16,000 supporters signing up for a package that also includes entry into Women’s Senior, Men’s Under 21 and underage international games, Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup and Continental Tyres FAI Women’s Cup Finals, exclusive benefits from sponsors, and discounts off FAIShop.com
The FAI would like to create awareness and advise any person who purchases a ticket from unofficial sources at a price above the face value will accept the risk of no entry to the stadium, as there is a mechanism in place to investigate tickets on sale through these outlets and deactivate the ticket.
The process of cancelling tickets, which were purchased unofficially, for the second leg game has already commenced and tickets have been traced to their original source.
The FAI has a zero tolerance policy on ticket touting and will work with stadium officials and An Garda Siochana to monitor this practice.
Applications for the first leg, in Copenhagen on Saturday, November 11, must be submitted before Monday, October 23 at 5pm via http://away.fai.ie
