Northern Ireland v Greece: Extra 1,500 tickets sell out within three minutes

By Claire Cromie

1,500 extra tickets for the Northern Ireland v Greece EURO2016 Qualifier have sold out within just three minutes.

Northern Ireland fans were poised to snap up the hottest ticket in town after the Irish FA announced additional allocation for the match on October 8.

But as some of the GAWA rejoiced at securing a seat, many disappointed fans took to social media to complain they were unsuccessful.

A total of 11,700 spectators will now be on hand to watch Michael O'Neill's side attempt to book their trip to France next summer - their first major tournament appearance in 30 years.
