Huge Interest In Croatia v Serbia Tickets From Abroad

Enormous interest from the Croatian community abroad for tickets for the upcoming World Cup Qualifier against Serbia in Zagreb has left the Croatian Football Federation with an envious predicament.

“There has been unforseen interest from the diaspora, for example from Germany and Switzerland there have been requests for a large number of tickets, they are ordering them by the 100, 200..,” said secretary Damir Vrbanovic.

There have also been requests for tickets from as far away as Australia and the U.S. The federation says that even if the stadium could hold 100,000 people, it would still sell out.

Security will be tight for the match that will be played at Zagreb’s Maksimir Stadium on 22 March. UEFA chief Michel Platini, who has announced he will be in Zagreb for the match, will be keeping a close eye on supporters, after earlier threatening both federations that any more crowd trouble may end up in a ban for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
