With only 40 days to kick-off, the interest and excitement for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009 has gained further momentum within the Host Country. Within the first 24 hours after all four Ticketing Centres went fully operational, about 18,000 tickets were sold. And, as expected the inauguration of the 'over the counter sales' has turned out to be the most popular way of purchasing tickets.
With the opening of the ticketing centres alone on Monday, 4 May, 5,000 tickets were sold in the four FIFA Confederations Cup venues. In total so far about 340,000 tickets for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009 have been sold. 300,000 tickets are still available.
