$45-$180 to catch Juventus 'live'

$45-$180 to catch Juventus 'live'
Juventus' players celebrate with the trophy of the Italian Serie A after their last football game of the season Juventus vs Cagliari on May 18, 2014 at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.

Serie A champions Juventus will be a part of Singapore's sports history on Aug 16.

The Italian giants will take on a Singapore Selection at the new National Stadium and it will be the first football match to be held at the Kallang facility.

The ticket prices for the match at the Singapore Sports Hub were released yesterday and many of the fans The New Paper spoke to felt that it was a little high.

The prices range from $45 to $180 for adults and $30 to $45 for children 16 and below.

Tickets will go on sale today and event promoters World Sport Group (WSG) believe the prices are fair, but it remains to be seen if the match at the 55,000-capacity stadium will be a sellout.

"$45 to see Juventus is a bit more than I was expecting," said football fan Matthew Ong, 35.

"But this will be the first match in a brand new facility, which makes it an historic occasion

"In light of that, I suppose the prices are justified."

The clash will be the first football match at the new National Stadium after the international friendly between Singapore and Malaysia originally scheduled on Aug 8 was postponed to a later date due to organisational issues.

A total of 52,000 tickets will go on sale at Sports Hub Tix (www.sportshubtix.sg) and there will be four categories for adults: $45, $70, $110 and $180.

There will be incentives for early birds as well as for "teams" of football fans who buy tickets for the glamour friendly.

Early birds will receive a 10 per cent discount on tickets, but the offer will only last for as long as Italy remain in the running at the World Cup in Brazil from June 12 to July 13.

Juventus fan Idran Juffrey wonders if the organisers will be able to fill the stadium.
