New Delhi: The manual sale for the New Delhi games of the Fifa U-17 World Cup tickets will begin at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Thursday.

The ticketing counters, located at the stadium’s gate no. 15, will be open from 10 am to 6 pm every day. Tournament local organising committee’s project director Joy Bhattacharya said, “We are aware that a substantial number of fans are more comfortable with buying at the box office and wanted to make sure they had this opportunity.

“The box office has been very successful when introduced in Goa and we are sure it will have a similar impact on the sale of tickets in Delhi.”

The tickets will be sold at discounted rates till October 5 and are priced at Rs 150/matchday for Category 3 seats in North, South and East stands and Rs 300/matchday for Category 2 seats in the West stands.

Category 1 tickets are priced at Rs 600/matchday in the West stand and Category 4 at Rs 60/matchday both in the North and South stands.

Delhi will host eight matches from October 6 to October 16, including all three of India’s group matches.
