After the furor, the controversy and the anger over the sale of tickets to see the National Team in its first friendly after the consecration in the World Cup in Qatar, the start of the delivery of the tickets arrived.
The match will be on Thursday 23 at the Monumental against a team B of the Panamanian National Team, a rival with a very low competitive level that actually represents an excuse in full FIFA date to celebrate with the Argentine public obtaining the third star.
, the company that was chosen by the AFA for the million-dollar business behind the sale of tickets, with only one minute left before the start of ticket sales, there were 1,400,000 people in the virtual waiting room hoping to buy one of the 63,361 available locations.
A couple of hours later the "Sold Out" sign arrived.
This Friday began the exchange of tickets at the Monumental.

"We thank everyone for so much love for the Albiceleste and we regret that it is impossible for all supporters to enter a single stadium," the AFA wrote in a statement.
The privileged people who were able to purchase their ticket virtually must pick it up in its physical form starting this Friday at the ticket offices located in the River stadium, in Núñez.
A situation that began to occur this Friday morning, with great calm and order.
The schedule for the withdrawal of tickets arranged by the company in charge of selling the tickets.
There are no references about fans traveling from distant cities to Buenos Aires.
However, this mechanism (which was only recently announced) caused concern among fans who bought their tickets from cities far from Buenos Aires and who cannot travel so far in advance.
The cases of families from Rafaela, Córdoba and Mendoza were going viral on social networks and represent a problem that many will suffer.
For now there is no official information in this regard, but the company is expected to provide a reasonable solution, such as providing this service on the day of the game.
It is worth remembering that after the match against Panama, Argentina will travel to Santiago del Estero to play a new friendly, this time against the Curacao team, a match that will be played on March 28 at the Madre de Ciudades stadium.
