Extra 150,000 World Cup tickets go on sale

FIFA is to put on sale an extra 150,000 tickets from its own allocation for this year’s World Cup in South Africa, including the previously sold-out final and the two semi finals.

FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke said the tickets will become available tomorrow morning and if they are all sold the tournament will reach 98 per cent of its 2.9 million capacity.

“We are very pleased with the final result. We were a bit concerned a few months ago, now we are definitely pleased,” said Valcke about the ticket sales.

Last month FIFA introduced an over-the-counter, sales-for-cash scheme in South Africa after the internet, credit card-based system had poor results in the host country.
