All the proceeds from ticket sales, which range from Rp 75,000 (US$6) to Rp. 750,000, will go to a charity managed by the JS Foundation promoting soccer in the Southeast Asian region. Tickets for the training day on June 1 will also be on sale at Rp 1.8 million.

'€œPark Ji-sung will come and stay for three days in Indonesia for the Asian Dream Cup 2014,'€ said Park'€™s father Park Sung-jong in a statement.
