saturday, june 2nd is BUY YOUR TICKET DAY!Posted: May 31, 2012
In the 2010 AFF (Asean Football Federation) Suzuki Cup, the Philippines was forced to play the two legs of its semifinal tie against Indonesia in Jakarta due to what was termed as the “absence of a suitable facility” to play our home leg of the home and away match-up. Our Azkals gave a very good account of themselves but in the end lost both matches by similar 1-0 scores. The intimidating atmosphere of the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium which can seat over 80,000 rabid Indonesian fans may or may not have played a part in those two defeats. The results were so close that one can only wonder – what if? What if we had been able to play our home leg at home?
Well, on Tuesday, June 5th albeit under different circumstances – we will get to test the mettle of the Indonesian Team, the Merah Putih when they face our Philippine Azkals at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.
It was loud, VERY LOAUD in 2010 in Jakarta. Let us return the favor and be loud and proud on Tuesday night. Then maybe, just maybe, we can finally forget about what could have been and instead see what it will be.
Tickets for the match can be purchased at all Ticketworld outlets and at ticketworld.com.ph. Tickets are from P160 to P2,600. Ticketworld outlets can be found at National Bookstore branches, Robinsons Department Store branches and at some Ayala Malls.
