Most of the fans were young supporters of local team HAGL.

One woman said: "HAGL have to face stronger teams and their chance of advancing is not looking good, but we love the club and the players, so we've come here to buy tickets to the game."

The original plan was to sell the tickets to people standing outside the stadium. However, with the crowd much bigger than anticipated, the ticket booths were moved inside the stadium's premises.
