The scramble for tickets will soon begin after Denmark were today confirmed as Ireland's opponents in next month's World Cup playoff.

The Boys in Green travel to Copenhagen for the first leg on Saturday November 11 at 7.45pm, before welcoming Denmark to the Aviva Stadium at the same time on Tuesday November 14.

Tickets will go on sale for the home leg this Friday from 11am, with prices starting at €30 for adults and €20 for children, excluding booking fees.

FAI season ticket holders looking to purchase extra tickets, Club Ireland members and Jack Charlton Lounge patrons can buy tickets for the home leg in an exclusive pre-sale from Wednesday, October 18, at 11am.

Applications can also be made for tickets for the away leg from this Thursday, at this address:

FIFA rules state that the visiting team must get at least 5% of the overall ticket allocation, which would be just over 1900 at Denmark's Parken Stadium, although the ultimate amount could be closer to 10% if the FAI can negotiate an agreement with their Danish counterparts.
