Match Ticket Shortage Hits Egypt FA Ahead of Ghana Game

Egyptian football fans are scrambling for tickets to watch the Ghana - Egypt game tomorrow despite having little or no hope of qualification. With just 24-hours to kick off, the Egyptian Football Association has announced that it has ran out of tickets for the 2014 World Cup qualifying play-off between the Pharaohs and the Black Stars at the Cairo June 30th Military Air Defense Stadium. All 27,000 tickets released by the Egypt FA have been purchased. The implications are that the Black Stars will play the pharaohs before a vociferous crowd of about 30,000 after it was revealed that the Military Stadium has a seating capacity of 30,000. Egypt has an almost impossible task of overturning a first leg deficit of 6-1.
