PRESS RELEASE – With the successful staging of two matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia and AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Joint Qualification Round 2 in Guam, Guam Football Association is set to stage a third home match Sept. 8 against Oman.

The local community will have the opportunity to watch live the highly anticipated match up that features Asia Group D’s current leading team, Guam’s Matao, against the group’s second-ranked team, Oman. Tickets for the monumental event will go on sale beginning Aug. 15 at GFA beginning at 10 a.m.

“Based on experience from the previous two FIFA World Cup Qualifier matches held in Guam in June, I encourage all fans and Matao supporters to purchase tickets early for the match,” said Joe Cepeda, GFA Vice President and Local Organizing Committee Chairman. “We sold out for both matches back in June – in fact, certain seating sections had sold out a week before. Unfortunately, we had to turn away some fans who wanted to purchase tickets at the gate on game day because the entire facility already was full.

“Countries send only their best players to play to qualify for the final round of the FIFA World Cup, so all fans will be treated to a very high caliber match, plus the stadium experience that comes with this level of football around the world,” added Cepeda.

General Admission seating is open.

Tickets will be available for sale from Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. If any tickets are left to be sold on game day, they will be sold at the gate Sept. 8 beginning at 9 a.m.
