ACCOMMODATION & TICKETS Last time we stayed at the 4.5* Regency Palace Amman which we thoroughly enjoyed. We arranged a bus transfer last time from hotel to stadium and highly recommend this again as we had a few minor incidents along the way and the escorted coach with the Australia Embassy worked great. Match ticket information and exact kickoff time have not been released yet, we'll keep you updated as they come to hand but it won't be a problem if you wish to attend.
