The tickets for the match between the teams of Argentina and Panama that will be played on March 23 in Buenos Aires sold out yesterday in just two and a half hours after the sale was enabled.
Almost 1.6 million fans had entered the virtual ticket sales system this Thursday waiting to be able to gain access to the Monumental Stadium, home of River Plate, where the match will be played and which has a capacity for 83,000 spectators.
The Deportick company, which has been in charge of the online sale of tickets, became a trend on social networks, where memes and joking comments circulate such as “that the selection make the great Coldplay and key 10 River”, alluding to the recent ten recitals of the Chris Martin band in the same stadium.
Seeing the debut of the Argentine soccer team as world champion costs between 35 and 244 dollars, according to the prices published this Wednesday by the Argentine Soccer Association (AFA).
The most affordable tickets were those for children under 10 years of age, which cost 7,000 pesos (about $35 at the current official exchange rate).
The general one had a price of 12,000 pesos (about 60 dollars), which was doubled for the stalls Sívori and Centenario Media and San Martín and Belgrano Alta, with a value of 24,000 pesos (almost 120 dollars).
The authorities hope that this first meeting will be a true popular party for the Argentine fans with their national team, as it is the first meeting of Lionel Scaloni’s men with the third star on his chest after the triumph in Qatar 2022.
