The Croatia versus Armenia football match on Tuesday at 20:45 at the Maksimir stadium in Zagreb is highly anticipated, with all tickets sold out. At the stadium, between 15,000 and 18,000 people are expected to attend depending on the turnout of children in the free section. HNS had previously put some tickets for the southern stand on sale after Armenian Football Association did not use them, but they quickly sold out due to high demand.
To make the occasion even more special, HNS organized a fan zone near the stadium that opens at 5 p.m. Visitors can enjoy a rich program that includes a concert by popular Mata Bulić and Tiho Orlić. In addition to watching the match live on a big screen next to the stadium, fans can also enjoy public viewing of the game.
Despite predictions of rain for Tuesday afternoon, Croatian fans have proven their resilience in past matches and are expected to turn out regardless of the weather conditions. The match against Russia in qualifiers for World Cup was played in challenging weather conditions, but still attracted thousands of fans who braved it all to watch their national team play.
At the stadium, fans can purchase fan props and licensed HNS products such as ‘fire’ jersey and other products from official vendors. HNS has also come up with activities for children including e-football and table football sessions which will be held during half-time break of the match.
