In Pula, Croatia, Istria welcomed Rijeka in the semi-finals of the Cup at Aldo Drosina on March 2014. At the stadium, a record 7,500 spectators gathered to witness the excitement of this highly anticipated match. This was a remarkable feat for the Pula stadium as no other visiting Croatian team had been able to surpass it until now.
This week, Hajduk from Split is set to arrive in Pula and take on Istria 1961 in a crucial match that will determine the outcome of the championship. The central western stand has already sold out, as well as the southern part where Hajduk fans will be seated. With only four tickets remaining for the East Stand by Sunday, it’s likely that they too will sell out quickly.
The northern stand currently holds the most seats with 1,246 tickets available, but this number could dwindle before Sunday’s game. So far, 7,654 tickets have been sold and with just five days left until the game begins, it looks like this year’s record from 2014 is about to be broken once again.
Istria has not conceded a goal in two consecutive games and is on an upward trajectory while Hajduk leads the championship. With such an exciting match ahead and both teams playing at their best, it promises to be an unforgettable spectacle at Aldo Drosina on Sunday.
