Ticket Sales Slow for Iceland vs. Norway Match

Just one third, or a total of 8,000, of the tickets to the Norway vs. Iceland World Cup 2014 Qualifying game at Oslo’s Ullevaal Stadion tomorrow evening have been sold.

Almost one third of these—2,500—have been bought by Icelanders, with the remaining 5,500 by the home team supporters.

Aftenposten.no reports that Norway is only playing for pride and there seems to be very little interest in the game in Norway. Normally more than 20,000 people come out to see Norway play at Ullevaal Stadion.

If Iceland wins the game, Iceland will go to the playoffs against the other second-placed teams from each group for a spot in the World Cup in Brazil next year.

The forecast in Oslo tomorrow is for temperatures of around 2°C (36°F).
