Guyana supporters are incredibly proud of their team and their support on match days makes Providence Stadium one of the greatest fortresses in the Caribbean.

Patrons wishing to purchase tickets will be allowed 10 tickets per person for each game and where possible they may be allowed to purchase tickets with the seats of their choice in their preferred stand depending on availability. However corporate entities wishing to purchase more than 10 tickets can contact the ticketing office for further details.
The cost per ticket is the same as last year with $4000 or $20US for the Red and Green Stands, $3000 or $15US for Orange Stand and $2000 or $10US for the Grass Mound.
This year organizers have put in place many security features to prevent counterfeiting and unlike some other venues, tickets for the Guyana National Stadium are numbered to match the seat number which will eliminate the possibility of overcrowding.
