Tickets for the 2007 AFC Asian Cup finals went on sale Tuesday via an online portal, ten weeks before the event kicks off.

The football showpiece is being co-hosted by Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, with tickets ranging in price from $55 for some seats at the Final in Jakarta to as little as $3 for group games.

"We are delighted to launch our ticket sales to the general public more than ten weeks prior to the kick-off of the AFC Asian Cup," said Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Assistant General Secretary Clare Kenny Tipton.

"As the event is being held in the four venues, extensive coordination and planning has been undertaken by AFC with the four local organising committees. We have taken every effort to keep the ticket prices within an affordable range, and based on ticket enquiries to date, we look forward to a great response from Asian football fans."

It is the first time internet ticket sales have been launched so early for any AFC competition, reflecting the increasing interest in a event that for the first time will feature Australia. Japan are the defending champions.

The finals begin on 7 July in Bangkok and end in Jakarta on 29 July.
