Tickets for the friendly between English Premiership club Liverpool and the Hong Kong national team are likely to be sold out by today.

Fans started to queue up for them as early as last Thursday at the Hong Kong Stadium, where the match will be played on July 27.

The biggest draw of this mega sporting event has to be the presence of Liverpool's full squad, which includes football superstars Michael Owen, Emile Heskey, Jerzy Dudek and Sami Hyypia. A total of 12,000 tickets went on sale to the public last Saturday.
