Block ticket for World Cup qualifiers launched

A block ticket for the five home 2014 FIFA World Cup Group 2 qualifiers which Malta will be playing between September 2012 and October 2013 was launched during a press conference at the Centenary Hall on Thursday.

The Goal Card gives its holders the opportunity to watch the home matches against Armenia, Italy, Denmark, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic at a reduced price compared to the regular prices for these matches which were also revealed during the same press conference.

MFA President Norman Darmanin Demajo said that following the draws for the World Cup qualifiers, the association was inundated with requests for large amounts of ticket for the Italy game. Since only thirteen thousand tickets are available for sale for any particular national team game due to obligations towards sponsors, the visiting team and complimentary tickets, the association wanted to do something in order to make sure that the true national team fans would have their seats guaranteed for the five games.

Those in possession of the Goal Card would make sure of being able to watch the Italy game despite the fact that the association is sure that the demand for tickets will be far larger than the supply.

Darmanin Demajo said the association has experimented with the concept of pre-match ticket sales for the FA U*BET FA Trophy final and this proved successful. With the Goal Card, the MFA will continue to build on this concept.

MFA Head of Marketing Norman Saliba explained the details about the Goal Card which will cover the game against Armenia on September 7 2012; Italy on March 26, 2013; Denmark on September 6, 2013; Bulgaria on September 10, 2013 and Czech Republic on October 10, 2013.
