“We want to encourage fans not to purchase tickets from unauthorized sources, and we are doing our very best to prevent this. We’ve relooked at the configuration of the stadium and added in more tickets within the safety regulations to ensure more fans will be able to purchase tickets at the acceptable prices” says Wendy Ng, Executive Producer of Running Into The Sun.

When tickets launched for sale on 28 Jul 2012, a total of 12,000 tickets sold out over the weekend; as well as over 3,000 people crowding at the ticket launch event.
