Zinedine Zidane fan Ray Hohen started queuing outside Hong Kong Stadium at 11am yesterday for tickets to the upcoming Real Madrid-Hong Kong match - even though they are not expected to go on sale until Friday. The 15-year-old was there with his older brother - part of a group of 10 people who have been taking turns queuing since 4pm on Sunday. By 5pm yesterday, there were more than 10 groups in the queue. 'I've watched football matches on TV before ... but this is a precious chance to watch a live match,' Ray said. 'We came so early in case we couldn't get tickets.' Tickets for the match are the most expensive in Hong Kong's sporting history. With prices ranging from $150 for student concessions to $1,500 for the best seats, they are costlier than tickets for last year's World Cup. Also queuing was Terrence Mak, another fan of the French midfielder Zidane. He said only girls liked Real's famous new signing, David Beckham. But Beckham fan Cherry Chan Siu-ling, 27, stuck up for her hero, saying: 'Beckham is so handsome and plays football well.' Cherry, who has been a Beckham fan since the 1998 World Cup, added: 'It's nothing to do with Real Madrid. I like football, but I'm only crazy about one soccer star: Beckham.'
