The FAI’s commercial and marketing minds didn’t need to come together to sell out next month’s World Cup qualifier. Instead, the clash of Stephen Kenny’s side and a star-studded Portuguese team led by main attraction Cristiano Ronaldo was always going to sell itself.

Within minutes of the 10am launch of general sale tickets, supporters were reporting the disappointment of missing out. When a handful subsequently popped up on third-party websites at inflated prices, anger was a prevailing emotion.
