VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Ticket brokers are confident Canada’s World Cup match against Switzerland on Sunday will sell out.
“They’re Canadian and they’re feeling Canadian and they want to be there, they want to be part of the action. I’ve had a lot of people say we’re not really soccer fans but we’re Canada fans. And so they want to be there because of that,” explains Kingsley Bailey with Vancouver Ticket. “Everybody is excited, everybody wants to be in the building.”
Tickets are selling for at least $90 a seat.
“And I was kind of getting a little bit embarrassed [thinking] what if we don’t outsell the America/Nigeria game for fans in the building but we are going to do that, we will beat that 52,000 number,” he adds. “This is up there as a single event…right up there with the Olympics. This is big, this is the biggest thing in Canadian soccer history.”
