It quoted the association’s director of marketing, Adama Idris as saying that those who have obtained the hard ticket application forms should submit on or before Friday to process its confirmation.

"We advise that the submission of all completed application forms be done latest by Friday, because the process for ticket confirmation by the world football governing body, FIFA, will commence immediately.

"All the stages have timelines and it is pertinent that we don't miss any of these timelines.
