The title is within our grasp! ’54,’74,’90 …..2014?’54,’74,’90…..2014? The World Cup title is within the German national team's grasp. Following the historic 7:1 victory over Brazil on Sunday, 13th July in Rio de Janeiro, the team to beat - either the Netherlands or Argentina - will be determined by tonight's second World Cup semi-final match, but ticket sales for the public viewing in the Olympic Stadium will start today. The action begins in the Olympic Park at 7 p.m. when the stadium opens. By the time the kick-off of the final starts at 9 p.m., up to 23,000 fans will be taking their places on the covered grandstand, while a further 9,000 spectators in the arena in front of the 140 m2 video wall can join them in celebrating every goal. The World Cup special event in the Olympic Stadium will therefore offer space and excitement for some 32,000 fans in total. As has been the case with the previous matches, entertainment will again be provided by Jogi-Elf Radio Gong 96.3. Before, after and between the match, the three Gong 96.3 musketeers Mike Thiel, Thomas Killian and Stefan Galler will be working their magic, whipping up the crowd into a frenzy and providing the facts and figures about the final. They'll be assisted by the Gong 96.3 DJs until about 20 minutes before the whistle, when we switch to the TV station's pre-match show. Advance ticket sales will start today, Wednesday, 9th July. Tickets are available in two categories: tickets for the arena and tickets for the grandstand. Admission to the public viewing area, whether it be in the grandstand or the arena, costs Euro 6 for children aged 6 to 14. Children under the age of 6 go free, however they do require a ticket, which can be obtained on request from the box offices. Adults will pay Euro 8. Tickets are available from München Ticket GmbH, Tel. +49 (0)89 54 81 81 81, www.muenchenticket.de and at the usual advance sales outlets.
