Thailand Tickets Sold Out, Vietnam Availability Issue Shows Failures

Low Ticket Sales in Vietnam Compared to Sold Out Tickets in Thailand – Disappointment and Lack of Faith in the Vietnamese Team

The Vietnamese and Thai national teams are currently embroiled in a tense battle during the second qualifying round for the 2026 World Cup in Asia. While Thailand managed to secure a 1-1 draw against Korea, Vietnamese fans are feeling disheartened following their team’s 0-1 defeat at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium.

Ticket sales for the upcoming fourth match on March 26 reflect this contrasting mood. Thailand proudly announced that all tickets for their game against South Korea at the Rajamangala Stadium, accommodating nearly 48,900 spectators, have been completely sold out. In stark contrast, Vietnamese ticket holders are expressing their frustration over the team’s lackluster performance.

Reports from VTC News indicate that some ticket sellers in Vietnam have resorted to offering tickets at reduced prices to minimize their losses due to low demand. The disappointing showings by the Vietnamese team in recent matches have left many fans disillusioned. During their last home game against Iraq in November 2023, only around 20,000 spectators filled the My Dinh Stadium.

In a proactive move to cater to the overwhelming demand, Madam Pang, the president of the Football Association of Thailand (FAT), has revealed plans to set up large screens outside the stadium to accommodate fans wanting to support the team during the South Korea match. Madam Pang emphasized the importance of fostering a vibrant and supportive atmosphere during the game.

In a statement to the Thairath newspaper, Madam Pang urged all Thais to come together and immerse themselves in the excitement surrounding the upcoming match. She assured that all tickets have been sold out but reassured fans without tickets that alternative arrangements, such as giant screens outside the stadium, will be put in place. Additionally, food stalls will be set up in the vicinity to enhance the overall experience for fans.

With high stakes and a fervent atmosphere expected at the Rajamangala Stadium, both the Vietnamese and Thai teams are gearing up for a crucial encounter that could potentially shape their World Cup qualifying journey. Time will tell whether these strategic measures and fan support will propel the Thai team towards making history on the international stage.
