Supporters wishing to attend the forthcoming international challenge match between FC Barcelona and Heart of Midlothian FC on Saturday 28 July (4pm) are advised that there are less than 2,000 tickets left for Murrayfield Stadium's East Stand.
The Catalan giants have been contracted by sports management and conference business PLATINUM ONE to spend a week in Scotland in July during which they will train in St Andrews and feature in two challenge matches against Dundee United (Tannadice Park, Thursday 26th July) and Hearts.
The East Stand is traditionally popular with Hearts supporters when attending European football games at the home of Scottish Rugby and has been sold out on each occasion that the Tynecastle side has played at Murrayfield.
Almost 23,000 tickets have been sold for the big game so far, proving that the opportunity to see Frank Rijkaard's superstars, including Ronaldinho, Samuel Eto, Carlos Puyol, and Deco, amongst others, is an exciting lure for sports fans in Scotland and beyond.
Scott Hastings from PLATINUM ONE said: "The East Stand is always very popular with Hearts supporters and both Scottish Rugby and Hearts have reported very healthy sales for this part of the stadium.
"Clearly with a large stadium like Murrayfield there is still availability in all seating categories giving sports fans the opportunity to watch football at affordable prices however, those keen to watch the game from the East stand should book their seats without delay."
Tickets are available from both Hearts and Scottish Rugby. Almost all remaining tickets for the East stand are available from Scottish Rugby. Please note, a booking fee applies.
