I'd be pissed if I paid 25,000 baht for a ticket and the people sitting next to me got in for free.

How to really stuff up anything, just ask Thailand.

5,000 free tickets were nailed to entrance gates at 3:30pm, and by 4:00pm they'd all gone.
Nails are very handy and commonly used in Thailand.

Ridiculous. Talk about overshooting the market. Wouldn’t the priority just be filling the stadium? Silly pricing.

I'd imagine it costs heaps to get the teams to play there..............so I guess whatever promoter organized it was trying to make a profit

It seems that the prices in Perth Australia are much more reasonable.

$49.00 AUD - $229 AUD.

There are some areas in Optus Stadium already sold out so I don't know what prices were in these seats.

Most certainly. Without seeing the balance sheets, I suspect the issue is in how much profit the promoters were going for.

Who can afford 25,000 bth for a single football game in Thailand? Yeah we all know, and I do not feel sorry for them at all. I hope that all free tickets were taken by people who do not even earn that amount of money monthly and that the greedy organisers learned a lesson.
