The ticket allocation of 82,000 for Manchester United’s friendly against A-League All Stars in Sydney sold out in 18 minutes. The game, scheduled for July 20, will be played at the ANZ Stadium.
Liverpool will play a few days later against the Melbourne Victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Tickets for the match were sold out in 26 minutes with a total of 93,000 tickets sold.
