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.
