“Ticket prices soared 10 times!” Thailand, which drew with South Korea, is now in the midst of ‘over-imaginary’ soccer fever


“The price of tickets for the Korea-Thailand war has soared more than ten times.”

South Korea’s A team, led by interim coach Hwang Sun-hong, will play a return match against Thailand, led by coach Ishii Masatada, in the fourth leg of the second Asian regional qualifying round for the 2026 North American World Cup at 9:30 p.m. on the 26th at Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

Thailand’s national fandom was in a frenzy after Thailand made a good defense with a 1-1 draw in an away match in Korea on the 21st. The price of scalps against Korea is soaring as the pride of the national team, which pushed the equalizer with strong team play in an away game where Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), all played well, and took one point with a tight suffocation defense.

According to Siam Sports in Thailand on the 23rd (Korea time), the price of tickets to the match against Korea, which is being trafficked by scalpers on social media and online, has soared 10 times. The media predicted that on-site ticket prices will rise even higher on the 26th.

The media reported that “smart speculators and scalpers began to move to welcome Thailand’s soccer fever.”

Tickets sold out instantly on the Thai Football Association’s official channel on the 10th. At that time, tickets were 165 (about 6,000 won), 295 (about 11,000 won), 395 (about 15,000 won), 560 (about 20,000 won), 700 (about 25,000 won) and 750 baht (about 28,000 won) for each seat grade.

However, the ticket price posted by a scalper on the “Tayfootball Ticket,” a Facebook public group with 7,000 members for the purpose of trading soccer cards right after Thailand tied with Korea, is beyond imagination. Tickets priced at 295 baht (about 11,000 won) for the second and third floors of Zone E were priced at 2,490 baht (about 92,000 won). Tickets priced at 2,000 baht (about 74,000 won) while those for Zone N and S behind the goalposts were priced at 2,500 baht (about 93,000 won). Tickets for Zone W, which is close to the running track where players warm up, were priced at 2,300 baht (about 85,000 won).

It is expected that scalpers will benefit from the special Korea-Thailand match, which will bounce more than 10 times the existing purchase price. 고수익알바

Thanks to Japanese coach Ishii’s good performance in away games in Korea, Thai soccer fans’ expectations for a “home visit” are heating up. Ishii, who led the 2022 and 2023 seasons as the head coach of the Thai professional football team Buriram, took the helm of the Thai national team in November last year and led Thailand to the round of 16 at the Qatar Asian Cup. Immediately after the Asian Cup, the Thai Football Association extended Ishii’s contract to the 2026 North and Central America World Cup, expressing solid confidence.
