FAI Confirm The Irish Allocation For Denmark Away Play-Off

While the debate surrounding tickets for Ireland’s clash with the Aviva rolls on, the FAI have confirmed allocation details for the away leg.

With the home leg now officially sold out, the first leg in Copenhagen three days earlier is the last resort for many supporters looking to see Martin O’Neill’s side one more time in this World Cup qualification campaign.

However, not many will get that opportunity, as the FAI has now confirmed that there will be an allocation of 2,305 for the clash in Copenhagen’s Telia Parken, roughly 6% of the stadium’s overall 38,065 capacity.  Give the fact that 5% is the base allocation under FIFA rules, Irish football’s governing body have acquired an extra 445 tickets for the November 11th clash.

Given the numbers that will likely travel to Denmark for the match, demand is likely to exceed supply by some distance – especially given the importance of the tie and the fact that the allocation is significantly less than that received for the final group qualifier against Wales in  Cardiff earlier this month.

Applications for tickets for the away leg can be registered here, but be advised that you only have until 5pm this coming Monday  (October 23rd) to do so.
