A further 500 seats are to be made available for the All Whites world cup qualifier against Bahrain, in Wellington on Saturday week.

The already capacity crowd was boosted to 35,000 last month with an additional 500 going on sale but those tickets were snapped up in less than ten minutes when they went on sale.

New Zealand Football chairman Frank van Hattum says FIFA's given approval for a small number of pitch-side stands on the ground adn the tickets for those seats will go on sale on Friday.

With the scalping market for tickets thriving, NZF Chief Executive Michael Glading says he's pleased more tickets have become available.
