Want to support FC Tokyo in the Nabisco Cup Final? Here's how to get a ticket to what is sure to be one of the fiercest Cup finals in recent memory:
First, mark your calendars:
2009 J.League Yamazaki Nabisco Cup Final
FC Tokyo vs. Kawasaki Frontale
Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009 (it's a national holiday)
Tokyo National Stadium (Kokuritsu)
Want to be there yourself? Here's the ticket info:
NOTE FOR ALL TICKET PURCHASES – FC TOKYO WILL BE ON THE 'HOME' SIDE OF THE STADIUM, SO DON'T FORGET TO SELECT 'HOME' FOR ANY TICKETS WHEN GIVEN THE OPTION.
SOCIO Season Ticket Holders
The club is mailing out information to season ticket holders on September 7th, 2009. Fans can apply for their tickets between September 8th, 2009 at 10AM and September 23rd at 9PM.
-Fans who do not receive this information by September 11th, 2009 are encouraged to call the club at ０３－３６３５－８９８５.
-Due to the difference in seating arrangements between Kokuritsu and Ajinomoto, the club has listed the seating conversions on this page. I would hazard a guess that they are the same as a regular season match at Kokuritsu would be.
-At this time I have no clue what the pricing will be or if SOCIO members will get the “Original Design Ticket” (see below).
J.League Yamazaki Nabisco Cup Original Design Ticket
