Saigontourist reports having booked 375 people already, while Vietravel and Ben Thanh Tourist will be taking at least 200 fans between them. All three have reserved a large number of tickets for the match.
Vietravel is aiming higher and wants to book 500 people to travel together and watch the game en masse at San Rajamangala Stadium.
A package tour to Bangkok with one of the big three travel companies costs from US$274 to US$405, excluding the stadium ticket, which will set you back a further US$7 to US$27.
