On the occasion of the Toppserie match between Vålerenga and Avaldsnes on May 1, the Oslo club has published what they call a John Arne ticket for sale on their pages.
As is known, former football professional John Arne Rice coaches Avaldsense.
Avaldsnes: – Creative
If you go to book a ticket for the match, a John Arne ticket will appear as an alternative and it is described as follows: “Try one of Norway’s most trained personalities who spoke of ex-professionals with a strange accent in Eastern Norway up close – near the bench. You get sausages and sodas with your purchase! cheap”.

The ticket is published at the price of 350 kroner. They apply to field 105 in the Intility Arena, which according to the stadium map is located in the lower part of the side where the training seats are located.
At the Avaldsnes camp, they welcome the exciting movement from Vålerenga.
We have recorded that Vålerenga issued a John Arne ticket. We think this is just positive and fun. If the fact that we have a quality coach like John Arney can help attract more spectators to women’s football matches in general, that’s a very good thing. Kjersti Jakobsen, Vice Chairman, tells Nettavisen: Creative by Vålerenga.
Jakobsen also doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with the slightly ripped text about Riise associated with the John Arne ticket sale and agrees that you have to put up with it when the stunt is basically helping to create a bit of a buzz around the match.
– Tracks monetary success
Vålerenga isn’t the first club to run a so-called stunt ticket this spring. Regarding Skeid 2’s encounter with Oslo rival Lyn in the third division, Skeid priced the first tickets for the remote division at NOK 800 and NOK 1200 respectively.
However, after the case gained media attention, prices changed. In the case of Skeid tickets, there has been some buzz on social media. Vålerenga’s stunt has been noticed and also mentioned by many users on the online Twitter community.
– Interesting ticket concept from VIFDamer. “I anticipate critical success here,” wrote Daniel Holmide Strand, Managing Director of Skeid.
Jens August Dalsegg, Director of Media and Marketing for VIF Women’s Team, wrote:
– That’s what we have to give when John Arne Riise comes to visit him.
National team goalkeeper Guru Petersen, who also plays with Valringa Damer, is among those who noticed the trick and posted the post on his account on Monday.
Troubled start to the season
Reiss took over as Avaldsnes coach before this season, but the former Liverpool player had a turbulent start to his time at the club.
He opened the season with a big loss for Rosenborg – 0-6. Subsequently, the club’s team stated that Riise should be protected from the media for a while. This was justified by the fact that there were a large number of requests from the press to talk to Reese.

The season continued with a loss to both LSK Women and Arna Bjørnar, before the first victory over Røa came on April 18. Recently, Riise’s team played in a draw against Lyn and after that match, the coach again made headlines with his statements.
Slay the bodyguard
After the match, he aggressively confronted his team’s goalkeeper, Jovana Petrovich. The cage keeper made two mistakes while Avaldnes led the match 1-0 and thus gave the home team the opportunity to turn the tide of the match. Finally finished 2-2.
– IM angry. It’s not going to happen at that level here, and I’ll say it clearly from around as well. It is permissible to make mistakes, but I must say when such things happen. I have nothing against saying that, Reyes was furious in the post-match interview.
After the first five rounds at Toppserien, Team Riise is seventh on the table with four points. It is more than Roa in last place so far.
On the other hand, Valringa has won five out of five matches so far and has 15 points in Topseren. The team is number two at the table, behind Bran.
