NDO – Vietnamese fans in Oman will have the chance to directly cheer on Park Hang-seo’s troops during their World Cup qualifying match against the hosts this October 12 as the Oman Football Association (OFA) has decided to allow up to 17,000 fans into the stadium.

According to the latest OFA announcement, Sultan Qaboos Stadium in Muscut, which will host the Group B Matchday 4 clash between Vietnam and Oman, will be opened at half capacity, 7,000 seats more than the quota for the previous Oman-Saudi Arabia encounter.

Tickets are available for purchase through the TM Done application from 10 am on October 10, with a maximum of just two tickets per person, who must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Vietnam-Oman meeting is scheduled to take place at 11pm on Tuesday. It will be officiated by Jordanian referee Makhadmeh Adham Mohammad Tumah, who took charge of the VAR section as Park’s side lost to Saudi Arabia in the opener of the final World Cup qualifying round.
