More than 10,000 international visitors are expected to travel to New Zealand for the tournament, which attracts an international television audience of over 170 million.
Fans who get in early to purchase venue packs for next year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup will be rewarded with a chance to witness the spotlight shine on football’s future superstars from less than $20 per match.
Tickets for the biggest global football festival ever staged in Australasia, will go on sale to the New Zealand football community on 28 April 2014, exactly nine months before the official draw will be broadcast live across the globe.
FIFA U-20 World Cup New Zealand 2015 CEO Dave Beeche explained that New Zealand’s football family, which makes up the largest sports participation base in the country, would be the first to access tickets to this landmark event.
"Our main ambition for this tournament is to fill the stadiums with people, noise, colour and passion in celebration of the world’s biggest global game coming to these shores."
Beeche said that the local organising committee had surveyed fans across the country in order to get the ticket pricing right.
“Within the football community this tournament is seen as the must-see event in 2015, they realise that this may be their only opportunity to see the next Messi or Maradona live in their backyard. We want to reward that commitment by providing a 20% discount on venue packs in 2014. Kiwi football clubs will also benefit with a 5% cash back rebate on all venue packs sold this year.”
FIFA’s Marion Mayer-Vorfelder, Head of the FIFA U-20 World Cup who will over-see her fifth edition of this tournament in New Zealand, reiterated Beeche’s comments.
“New Zealanders will be overwhelmed by the standard and quality of football played in this tournament, it really is the launch pad of our next international footballing superstars and we would urge all sports fans not to miss out on seeing these players in action.”
"We wanted to ensure that price would not be a barrier for kiwis to say ‘I was there’ when the next global footballing superstar was discovered."
Kiwis will get a chance to see the Trophy as it travels throughout the country from 5 May - 30 May 2014, concluding exactly one year before the tournament kicks off.
The FIFA U-20 World Cup New Zealand 2015 starts on 30 May 2015 and concludes on 20 June 2015. Matches will be played across seven host cities including Wellington.
