With the excitement of the final qualifier round reaching its peak this Wednesday, fans will still be able to immediately purchase their tickets for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.
To meet the strong demand by the football fans especially in the qualified countries it was decided today to extend the second sales phase until 20 November 2009 so that supporters do not have to wait until the third and main ticket sales phase kicks off the day after the Final Draw on 5 December. Tickets can be purchased online via FIFA.com until midnight South African time (CET+1) and in South Africa also at FNB branches until end of business of banking outlets on the final sales day.
With the exception of Brazil and England, Team-Specific Tickets (TSTs) are still available for all of the other qualified nations. Depending on which of the five types TST series fans apply for, their TST may include between three and seven matches, including the final. These tickets are allocated to the team’s venues automatically, meaning fans can buy a ticket to follow their team throughout the tournament without having to wait to see where it will play. At this stage, individual match tickets are mainly available for matches at Johannesburg’s Soccer City Stadium (please note no more tickets are available at this stage for opening and final matches) and at the Durban Stadium. In the current phase, no more category four tickets, which are exclusively reserved for South African residents, are available.
