Jakarta | The Blibli Indonesia Open 2019 BWF Tour Super 1000 has entered its quarter-final stage. The supporters’ enthusiasm to watch their favorite players are growing. As a proof, although the match will only be started at 12.00 AM, the supporters have been lining up in front of Istora Senayan, Jakarta, on Friday (19/7), since early in the Morning.

In order to get the tickets to the match, the supporters can buy the tickets online or they can buy it on the spot at the venue. However, the tickets sold through online channels have been sold out, while the number of on-the-spot tickets sold is limited. “I came here since 6 in the morning. Fortunately, I was able to get the ticket as the queue in front of the get has gotten much longer,” said Yunita (32), from Tebet.

Yunita claims that she is taking a three-day off from the office to watch Indonesia Open 2019. According to her, it would be a big miss if she didn’t come to watch a tournament of this level. “I don’t mind lining up for the tickets, what matters is that I should get a comfortable seat while I’m inside. I can’t wait to see Hendra Setiawan/Mohammad Ahsan,” Yunita added.

Based on Djarum Foundation’s report, since 8 A.M. in the morning, the situation in Istora Senayan has started to get crowded. The supporters have started to exchange their online tickets at the ticketing booth and some of them are crowding the On-The-Spot ticket sale booth. Rama (27), since 11 A.M, still has not been able to get the ticket yet. ”If couldn’t get the ticket, there will be no other way, I might watch the match from the big screen. As I have spotted a big screen on the outer part of Istora, so maybe I’ll watch it there,” said Rama.
