Tickets for Manchester City vs Chelsea Friendly in St Louis Sell Out In 20 Minutes

chelsea man city st louis 600x285 Tickets for Manchester City vs Chelsea Friendly in St Louis Sell Out In 20 Minutes

Tickets for the Manchester City against Chelsea friendly to be played in St Louis on May 23 sold out within minutes of going on sale today, reports the St Louis Post-Dispatch.

“I think if we had a 100,000-seat stadium, we could have sold it out,” said Vicki Bryant, vice president of event services and merchandising for the Cardinals. “We expected it to sell out, but I don’t think we expected it to sell out in minutes. Quite frankly, we’re blown away by the demand. This is the kind of demand you would get for Game 7 of the World Series.”

Bryant said that the team was also looking at any ways to fit more seats into the stadium for the game or sell tickets for seats they weren’t planning to sell. Plus, there’s a chance that some tickets may become available that had been held for groups or the clubs themselves.

If you’re interested in purchasing tickets, if any more become available, your best bet is to keep on checking the St Louis Cardinals website or their Facebook or Twitter pages.

If you’re one of the lucky people to get a ticket to this match, let us know in the comments section below. Roll-call!

In the meantime, stay tuned to EPL Talk for news about the Chelsea-Manchester City friendly being announced for Yankee Stadium.
