More than half the tickets available for Manchester United's match against Hong Kong will be sold directly to the public, organisers have announced. Sponsors, guests and members of clubs affiliated to the Hong Kong Football Association usually take up more than 50 per cent of tickets for such events, but this time organisers want to ensure that United fans in the territory get to see their favourite team. Tickets for the July 23 exhibition match, part of United's Asian tour which is a warm-up for the 2005/2006 season, will go on sale at 9am on June 25 at Hong Kong Stadium. Students will be offered a limited number of tickets at a reduced price of $180. Others are $1,200, $980, $780, $480 and $380. A maximum of four tickets will be sold to an individual. England striker Wayne Rooney will be the star attraction, while United are also bringing established stars such as Welsh winger Ryan Giggs, Dutch striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Portuguese attacker Cristiano Ronaldo and world-class centre-back, Rio Ferdinand. United's new signing - Dutch goalkeeper Edwin van de Sar - will make his debut for the club during the tour, and mainland striker Dong Fangzhuo could become the first Chinese to play for the Red Devils.
