The record of 7,500 spectators at the Aldo Drosina stadium in Pula was set when Istria played Rijeka in the semi-finals of the Cup in March 2014. This Sunday, Hajduk from Split will be coming to Pula and it is expected to break this record. The central western stand and the southern part are already sold out, leaving only four tickets for the eastern stand which are almost certainly going to be sold by Sunday.
The northern stand has the most seats left with 1,246 tickets remaining. However, it’s likely that they too will be gone by Sunday as Hajduk is currently leading the championship and Istra 1961 is on a rise with two consecutive games without conceding a goal. This is setting up for an exciting game on Sunday.
The last time Split beat Istria was on July 17, 2022 during a match played in Pula which ended in a 2-0 victory for Split with goals scored by Melnjak and Livaja.
