Al-Ka’abi: All Tickets Expected to be Sold Out
Ahmed Al-Kaabi, Manager of Al Ain Fans Affairs Office, confirmed that the more than 13,000 tickets for the Asian game between Al Ain and Al Hilal were sold, 48 hours before the match.
“Due to the interaction of Al Ain fans and their remarkable response for the main training held at Hazza bin Zayed Stadium the day before yesterday, I expect that all tickets will be sold out, 24 hours before the kick-off,” he said.
Al-Kaabi said that the preparations of the Al Ain fans Affairs Office have actually started for the new season at the end of last season and Al-Ain fans had an important role in many ideas and encouraging initiatives.
He continued: “Al Ain fans are expected to adopt a new cheering style in the new football season, starting with the encounter against Saudi’s Al Hilal which will be held this evening at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium.”
Members of some expatriate communities in our beloved country, including the Japanese community, will be taking part in the cheering tonight, he added.
In response to a question about the “Tifo” dedicated for the match against Al Hilal, he said: “It is certain that the “Tifo” of the match will be revealed on the stadium opposite to the main platform as usual.”
It is not a secret that after the praise received by Al Ain fans from AFC for the ideal cheering and the continuous interaction with the players as well as the initiatives revealed on the stadium, our responsibility has doubled in the preparation of the “Tifo” for “the Boss” AFC matches and thus, a mobile and three-dimensional “Tifo” will be revealed at today’s encounter and we hope that it will be welcomed and accepted by all, he said.
He added: “There are also messages of welcome and appreciation to our Saudi brothers, which will be revealed through large banners along with the messages prepared for the new players of Al Ain.”
He concluded by saying, “I hope that we will continue to follow the excellence that has always placed “Al Ain nation” in the forefront through continuous interaction with the players, contributing to the strength of the team.”
