Upward Trend In Ticket Sales Due To Lin Dan's Presence - BAM

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 18 (Bernama) -- An upward trend in ticket sales for the Malaysian Open Super Series this year is due to the presence of Chinese ace Lin Dan said the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM).

BAM general manager Kenny Goh said 70 percent of the 11,000 tickets put up for sale during a promotion period since November has been snapped up.

"Maybe feel that the return of Lin Dan to the Malaysian Open could result in mouth-watering clash against Datuk Lee Chong Wei in the final. That factor could have boosted ticket sales," he told reporters at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil here Tuesday.

Goh said BAM were happy with ticket sales this year compared to previous years or even last year.

"Premium class tickets have seen brisk sales since 60 percent of the tickets allocated have been sold. Even attendance for the qualifying rounds today have been very encouraging and the best in recent years," he said.

He added that badminton fans can buy their tickets at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil from 8am to 5pm.

Tickets are priced at RM25 to RM45 for Premium seats, RM15-RM35 (low level) and RM10-RM20 (upper terrace).

Meanwhile, national back up player Chong Wei Feng failed to take advantage of home turf after losing to Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto 21-16, 24-22 in a qualifying match.
