If you are looking at getting your hands on tickets to the Davis Cup tennis final in Zagreb next month – forget about it…
Croatia will take on Argentina in the final of the Davis Cup from 25-27 November 2016 in front of a packed Arena Zagreb after news that tickets have sold out after going on sale only on Thursday. Arena Zagreb has a capacity of 15,000, with part of the ticket allocation going to Argentine fans, sponsors and dignitaries. Online ticketing website ulaznice.hr put up the sold out sign on Friday morning.
Croatia, who will be led by World Number 11 Marin Čilić, will be aiming to win their second Davis Cup title. In 2005 Croatia beat Slovakia in Bratislava to claim the Davis Cup for the first time.
Argentine-Croatian Daniel Orsanic will captain Argentina and his task will be made more difficult with a full house in Zagreb.
“Croatia is a good team. (Marin) Čilić is a great player and in good form at the moment. (Borna) Ćorić is still young but he is very mature for his age. Dodig for years has been at the top of doubles tennis. Croatia is a complete side. It is clear it will be a hard and very fast surface we play on but we can play on all types of surfaces,” he said.
