Don't despair if you are unable to buy a ticket for the AC Milan versus Kitchee match. Young Post has five pairs of complimentary tickets, worth $300 each, to give away to readers in a competition (see page 11). Up to 29,000 tickets, including 2,000 student tickets at $120, go on sale at Hong Kong Stadium in Causeway Bay and at the Hong Kong Football Association offices in Ho Man Tin this morning. Organisers have warned that they have a very limited number of student tickets, while online tickets have been sold out. The most expensive seats with the best view cost $2,500 and include gift vouchers and a buffet dinner at the stadium. For $650 you can sit close to the pitch, near the half-way line. Meanwhile, six-time European champions and newly crowned Italian Serie A winners confirmed this week that their star striker Filippo Inzaghi will not recover from an ankle injury in time to play in Hong Kong. Inzaghi was left out of the 23-man Italy squad for Euro 2004 because coach Giovanni Trapattoni wanted to include as few players recovering from injury as possible. But there was good news for local fans as defender Paolo Maldini confirmed that he would not back down from his decision to retire from international football and would definitely be available for the club's Asian tour.
