Despite that the game is schedule for September 6, the air of revenge took over Costa Rica’s soccer fans on Monday, buying up all 28.000 tickets in less than five hours.

For many the qualifying game, to be played in Costa Rica, is payback for the snow ridden game last March that resulted in a Tico loss.

In the end, thousands had smiles on their faces buying their tickets for the sold out game. However, many thousands more, left with nothing but a sad look on their faces, after having stood in line for up to 8 hours.

Although people lined up starting Sunday, it wasn’t until 10am Monday when the Fedefútbol – Costa Rican Soccer Federation – gave the green light to to start selling.

The bad news came at 2:30pm when Fedefútbol officially announced the game was sold out.

The tickets sold like hotcakes. Rafael Vargas, head of the Fedefútbol, commented that if they had a bigger stadium, perhaps one with 50.000 seats, they would have sold at as well.

“From point of the view of the soccer association the income is important, but we have to thank the fans for being keen to take in the game with the Unites States”, said Vargas.
