Buying tickets for Argentina v Chile

It's proving to be a very tough task!

I'm back in Buenos Aires after leaving in January and one of the first things I did was to get to the Luna Park Stadium (traditional sporting venue with a history of boxing and basketball events) where they are selling tickets to watch Argentina v Chile on Saturday. A match that will mark the start of the World Cup Qualifiers for South Africa 2010.

I met Johnny (one of our regular posters here) and we wanted to join the queue at 4:30 PM. It turned out to be a very long one! Covering the whole of 400 meters. As we got to the end of it, a couple of policemen said: "You have to come back tomorrow".

So that's what I'll do. I want to see MESSI live for the first time in my life. I want to be a part of the start of a new era for our national team.

Who knows...maybe in four years time, we will all remember this Saturday as the day when it all began.

I believe. I never stopped believing.

Keep the faith, Johnny...we'll get the tickets and we'll become the eye witness for all the readers of our blog to give them our review just after the match.

God, I wish I could be there with you guys :-(

Anyway, please take plenty of pictures for that game.

At this point of time, there is no news whether the match will be shown live here in Malaysia.

I can't go with Seba today to get the tickets due to a previous commitment, but he has my money. If anybody sees him at the airport, please let me know.:)

Seba said...


I've got the tickets!

Got there at 10 (they started selling at 11) and after waiting for 90 minutes in the line, I've got tickets so Johnny and myself will be able to watch Argentina-Chile!

Congrats dudes, now go and enjoy the match, as for me im just waiting for the TV coverage times and looking forward to the RUGBY. Also, guys...this is the return of MARCELO BIELSA, although in other colours :)

Seba, you how much i wanted always to see Argentina beating England in football, well i think if results go to my desire i would love to have an ENGLAND-ARGENTINA rugby world cup final..what a great way and stage to beat them :)...**fingers crossed**


Seba said...

Thanks Alwin. Yes, I know how big a deal is for you when Argentina play England in any sport!

The thing is that I think it's almost mission impossible for both teams. That said...there are no impossibles in sports and Los Pumas showed that in more than one ocassion.

Hope you guys have alot of fun. I'd LOVE to be able to go, but with being on a different continent and all, its sort of hard. Take lots of pictures and hope you have a blast!

Linda said...

Congrats Guys. Take lots of pics and share the atmosphere & the game with us afterwards.

No news about live telecast here in Thailand as well but I can catch it through stream [should have it] if don't have on TV.

I'll be cheering from this side of the world so good luck to the albicelestes.
