Tickets for Ghana-Egypt tie sold out

Tickets for Tuesday’s World Cup playoffs against Egypt have been sold out less than 24 hours after it went up on sale.

Around 32,000 were snapped up less than 24-hours after it was released onto the market.

The National Sports Authority have been ‘blown away’ by the numbers that bought the tickets in such a record time.

“It’s true that the ticket have been sold out. We released the ticket on Tuesday and Wednesay afternoon, all have been sold,” Spokesman Hamid Issaka said

“I went to the office to enquire and I was surprised with the rate at which the ticket was sold.”

The scenario clearly gives an indication of how local fans are anxious to feel the stadium in their numbers ahead of the World Cup playoffs against the North African country.

The Ghanaians are bent on securing a convincing win against the Pharaohs at the Baba Yara stadium on October 15 before the return fixture on November 19.

    please,please and please again. calm yourselves down and read my two comments above whilst still waiting for my book "WHY NIGERIANS BEHAVE THE WAY THEY DO" then you will know why it is a waste arguing with them! they crave for attention which explains why they are always creating all sorts of headlines! it is the only country I know of all the countries I've visited that can revoke the lincense of a TV station(AIT) for broadcasting that a plane had crashed at a definite location when the NAMA had no clue! in fact, there is absolutely no need arguing with a Nigerian! they know that there are no other countries except Nigeria. only the civilized and the enlightened ones whose percentage ls infinitesmal are the EXCEPTIONS!

    bismark my brother, do me and yourself a favour by reserving your data for important things than commenting on some creatures who craving for attention. remember, the answer to a fool is ignoring him but unfortunately in Nigeria, such an act is regarded by the ignored one as being superior to you! that is why they resort to all forms of insults and violence. please, read my comment above and you could save yourself from unwarranted headache! in fact, I'm writing a book titled" WHY NIGERIANS BEHAVE THE WAY THEY DO" I promise to give you a copy free as Jonathan has agreed to read it. you will then know what to expect from a Nigerian when you meet one albeit 99.99% of them!

    please, calm yourselves and leave the Nigerians who sleep on this site. the fact is, there is no soccer-dedicated site here in Nigeria and that is why people who are frustrated by Boko haram and corrupt politicians wake up daily to rain insults on innocent civilized people! websites that provide soccer news are owned by daily sports papers(complete sport, soccer star) and fm radio(brila fm). in fact, Nigerians are synonymous with insult. you need to be here to see how some creatures have sunk so low! with few exception though, the majority even think that apart from Nigeria , no country even exists! fellow countrymen, don't be surprised to read from some creatures such as those who swarm here every second! I have no time visiting Nigerian site nor reading their news papers because the stories will make you take cover! I wish our boys the best.
