The Hajduk players, led by their standout player Marko Livaj, have said goodbye to their time with the team “Fire” during the Euro qualifiers. They are now preparing for the continuation of the HNL with just four rounds left until the end of the year. On Sunday at 3 p.m., they will visit Istra 1961 in their first match since joining Hajduk.
The match at Aldo Drosina Stadium has the potential to break Istria’s record for spectators at a home game, which currently stands at 7,500 during a Cup semi-final against Rijeka. All tickets for Istria’s southern stand and eastern stand, where fans with Hajduk’s insignia can enter, have been sold out. Only tickets for the northern tribune remain on sale, but it is expected that more “late” tickets will be sold before kickoff, which could mean that Istria’s attendance record falls at this stadium.
The capacity of Aldo Drosina is around 8,900 seats, and as of now there are just 1,246 tickets left on sale. It seems like a lot of fans are looking forward to seeing this exciting match between two top teams in Croatian football. The first round promises to be an intense battle for supremacy in the championship and will certainly be worth watching for all football enthusiasts in Croatia and beyond.
