KUALA LUMPUR: All 80,000 tickets for the AFF Suzuki 2018 Cup semi-final clash between Malaysia and Thailand on Dec 1 at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium have been sold.

According to the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM), tickets sold over the counter at the National Stadium which opened at 10am were sold out within three hours.

It added that tickets sold at selected branches such as Al-Ikhsan Sports and Football Republic were also sold out.

The total also includes 40,000 tickets made available online earlier.

FAM via its Facebook page thanked Malaysians for their support and hoped that the full stadium would result in a positive result for Harimau Malaya.

Malaysia plays Thailand on home ground in the first leg of the semi-final and will need a good cushion before heading to the Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok on Dec 5. -- Bernama
