FAZ has announced that demand for tickets for this weekend’s World Cup qualifier against Sudan is so high that they estimate that over 3 million people want a share of the 37,000 tickets which will go on sale today.
FAZ has since and directed all selling points to sell only 2 tickets per person.
FAZ Communications Manager and Spokesperson Erick Mwanza has confirmed the development in a statement.
Here is the full statement from FAZ
Tickets for the FIFA World Cup Qualifier match Zambia vs. Sudan which is scheduled for Saturday 15th June at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium will go on sale on Wednesday 12th June.
Tickets will be sold across several post offices in Lusaka, Kabwe, Ndola, Kitwe, Luanshya, Mufulira, Chingola and Kalulushi.
The other outlet which will stock and sell tickets in Lusaka is Axis Centre on Cairo Road.
There will be NO ticket sales at Football House or Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
Parking tickets and cards are not for sale.
These are given exclusively by Football House.
Any persons touting Parking Cards and Stickers should be reported to the nearest police as these are fraudulent.
Further, in an effort to ensure that as many people manage to buy tickets, each person presenting themselves for tickets at any post office/selling point will only be allowed to purchase a maximum of TWO tickets.
We therefore would like to implore members of the public and fans to respect and follow this guideline as well as be on the lookout for any possible breach.
Members of the public are further encouraged to purchase tickets as soon as they go on sale and go to the stadium early on match day.
