Tickets for 2019 African Nations Cup will be available for purchase online from this Monday, according to the manager of the tournament’s organising committee Mohamed Fadl.
“The first stage of selling the tickets online will kick off during the period from 15 to 20 April,” Fadl told Egyptian radio station 9090.
“The first stage includes tickets from the first match until match 37, and the second stage includes matches from 38 to 52.
“The ticket prices will suit the huge budget of the tournament, the third biggest around the world. We are also working hard to fight the black market by selling the tickets online,” the former Ahly player added.
Egypt was granted hosting rights in January after planned host Cameroon was forced to stand down due to lack of preparation.
The Pharaohs are seeking to win the prestigious title for the first time since 2010, the last of their record seven victories.
It will take place from 21 June to 13 July, having been moved from January/February to avoid club-versus-country clashes.
