Kolkata: Lionel Messi's date with Kolkata may be round the corner, but ticket sales for the high profile FIFA International friendly between Argentina vs Venezuela on September 2 have been lukewarm so far.
Online and counter sales for tickets began from July 30 but as of now only 20,000 of the 100,000 tickets have been sold, according to the details provided from Celebrity Management Group, the exclusive right holders of the friendly.
"There has been a very good response for online ticket sales. We are sure the counter sales (at Mohammadan Sporting Ground) will pick up as the match day nears. Overall 20,000 tickets have been sold," Bhaswar Goswami, CMG Executive Director said.
