Tickets for the World Cup qualifying clash between Vietnam and China at My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi will be available for purchase on Jan. 18.

Just like Vietnam's previous home World Cup qualifiers, there will be four price stamps for the tickets: VND500,000 ($22), VND700,000, VND900,000 and VND1.2 million.

The tickets will only be sold online from 9 a.m. on Jan. 18 until the end of Jan. 20. Fans will have to use their IDs to purchase a maximum four tickets each.

On Friday, Hanoi authorities approved Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) to welcome 20,000 spectators (50 percent of My Dinh's capacity) to the game. Attendants will need to be fully vaccinated at least 14 days before the game or recovered from Covid-19 six months prior. They will also need a negative test result obtained within 72 hours.

This is Vietnam's first time ever in the final round of World Cup qualifiers. The Golden Dragons are at the bottom of group B after six losses. Before playing China, Vietnam will go to Australia to play the host on Jan. 27.

The national team returned to training on Thursday. Key players like Nguyen Tien Linh, Nguyen Van Toan and Nguyen Hoang Duc were absent due to Covid-19, with Park making two additions to the squad.
