FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017: Phase 1 ticket sales for Kochi, Kolkata, Guwahati reopened due to massive interest

Kolkata: Overwhelmed by the huge interest in three cities of Kolkata, Kochi and Guwahati, FIFA reopened the phase I sales of Under-17 World Cup tickets on Wednesday that start at Rs 48 per match when bought in a package of the entire matches at a venue.

The Salt Lake Stadium will host 10 matches including the final of the 6-28 October tournament as the football-crazy city showed maximum interest with tickets in phase one sold out in less than 12 hours.

Keeping that in mind, the Organising Committee has decided to ensure that fans, who have not yet got a chance to buy the venue package in three cities, can access the discounted tickets for another three days.

"We've been really impressed with the interest in the tournament, especially in Kolkata, Guwahati and Kochi, and we'd like to give the fans there one more opportunity before the draw to book their place for this historic event in India. This is a beautiful demonstration of the love that Indian people have for football," FIFA Deputy Secretary General Zvonimir Boban said in a statement.

The much-awaited draw for the tournament will be held in Mumbai on 7 July, and the same day the phase II ticket sale will begin with higher prices.

The phase will be from 7-21 July and will be exclusively for VISA cardholders.
