Public interest in the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 is proving to be unprecedented compared to previous editions, with 546,000 of the total ticketing inventory already allocated. The number is particularly impressive considering the high capacity nature of each of the six stadiums set to host the event from 15-30 June.

“These figures prove that the FIFA Confederatons Cup including four FIFA World Cup champions in the line-up is a highly anticipated event, especially for those fans and local residents hoping to experience the action live in one of the six FIFA World Cup stadiums. Despite the huge demand, there is still a good chance for fans to secure tickets for most of the matches before the end of the current sales phase on 28 May,” explains Thierry Weil, FIFA Marketing Director.

Tickets can be booked exclusively online via www.FIFA.com/ticketing. With unpaid ticket orders returned in the public sale, fans still have the opportunity to snap up 246,000 tickets.
