'Ticket sales in Goa, Delhi will go up after draw'
Tournament director Javier Ceppi has termed the ticket sales for the FIFA U-17 World Cup a "resounding success" and expressed confidence that it would pick up further once the draw is done on July 7. Ticket sales for the matches has received a lukewarm response in Goa. So has been the case in Delhi. Even as the lowest price for a ticket has been kept at Rs 48, only 200 people have bought tickets in Goa, which is less than four times the next venue tickets available at fifa.com. "It is important to put things in perspective. So far, the overall ticket sales for the FIFA U-17 World Cup has been a resounding success," he said.
