After tickets for the Saturday matches in the Barclays Asia Trophy 2013 were sold in record time, fans are rushing to grab a seat for the first day of the tournament on Wednesday 24 July.
Matchday tickets are still available for semi-finals day on 24 July but are selling faster than in previous years. On Wednesday, there will be two matches, with 2012 Barclays League champions Manchester City, under a new manager, taking on South China, the Hong Kong champions, while Tottenham Hotspur face Sunderland in a repeat of the final match of the 2012/13 Barclays Premier League season, when a tense game was decided in the final minute in spectacular fashion by Spurs' Gareth Bale.
