Category III AFF final match tickets selling at regular price

Padang Indonesian Soccer Association (PSSI) has decided to sell Category III tickets to the final AFF Suzuki Cup 2010 match between Indonesia and Malaysia in Jakarta at the regular price.

A member of the local committee of the Cup, Joko Driyono, said PSSI chairman Nurdin Halid had instructed staff to reduce the ticket price after mounting complaints about the price increase, including by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Wednesday.
