MISSED out on the first and second phase of tickets to the A-League All Stars in Sydney this July? Hieu Chau speaks to Ticketek to find out how you can boost your chances if, just if, a third round of tickets become available. 

If you’re a Manchester United fan living in Australia, you would no doubt have heard about the Red Devils’ planned visit to Sydney Australia in July. The visit to Australia, a leg of the team’s pre-season world tour, will be the club’s fifth – their last was in 1999.

In Sydney, Manchester United players such as Nani, Nemanja Vidic, Paul Scholes, Robin van Persie, Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney will be training and playing a friendly exhibition match against the A-League All Stars Team – a team comprised of the very best players from Australia’s own soccer league.

Right now, the first and second phase of tickets to the game are exhausted. But there’s still a tiny chance more tickets will be available for you to catch those soccer superstars in action.

A representative of Ticketek, the Australian ticket company in charge of ticket sales, urges fans still without tickets to register on the company’s waiting list so they can be notified the moment more tickets become available. The decision to release more tickets to the public ultimately lies with the promoters of the event though.

“Technically yes, the event is sold out. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any tickets – it’s up to the promoters of the game to decide if they want to give them up. Keep having a look at the [Ticketek] website to keep updated on the matter,” the rep told Meld.

The friendly exhibition match between Manchester United and the A-League All stars is on July 20 in Sydney at the ANZ Stadium.
