17,000 out of 20,000 online tickets for the ongoing AFF Suzuki Cup’s second leg semi-final match between Vietnam and the Philippines have been sold. 

The VFF said its sale system is still active. It was interrupted temporarily but it has not collapsed.

The VFF sold tickets via websites vebongdaonline.vn, vebongonline.com.vn, ticketonline.vff.org.vn and vebongda.vff.org.vn starting at 10am on Wednesday.

However, due to the heavy volume of buyers accessing the websites at one time, the system became overloaded.

At 10am on Wednesday, there were 130,000 people accessing the websites at one time. After that, there were around 45,000–50,000 people.

According to Le Hoai Anh, VFF’s general secretary, the online sales system only accepted 10,000 people at a time. When that number was exceeded, the websites would be blocked.

Because of this, hundreds of Vietnamese fans gathered at the office of the VFF on Wednesday to complain about the ticket sales.

The upcoming match will take place at Hanoi’s My Dinh National Stadium at 7:30pm on December 6.

The Vietnam team arrived in the Philippines to prepare for the first leg semi-final match on December 2.
