They also launched the FINAL TICKET SALES PHASE for the 2010 World Cup Tournament, which kicks off at Soccer City in Johannesburg on June 11:
“For this last phase, we have made a big effort to assist football fans by introducing various additional means to purchase a ticket,” emphasised Jérôme Valcke. “We are committed to facilitating the process for all fans and giving them this last chance to attend the matches and experience the excitement of this first World Cup in Africa.”
In all, 500 000 tickets for 63 matches (including all Host Cities and all knock-out matches except the final) will be made available.
Five different sales channels will be operating during this fifth and final sales phase, which will run from next Thursday, April 15 to the last day of the tournament, July 11:
- 11 ticketing centres across the Host Cities open seven days a week from 09:00 until 18:00 local time
- Approximately 600 FNB branches nationwide, open five days a week from 09:00 on April 15; the process is new: you can order tickets, make payment and get ticket confirmation immediately; the actual tickets need to be collected at the FIFA ticketing centres or Shoprite/Checkers sales points
- The official tournament website www.FIFA.com, starting from 18:00 on April 15
- The call centre hotline (In SA: 083 123 2010; International: 0041445832010), starting from 18:00 on April 15 and open seven days a week from 08:00 until 22:00
- 18 Shoprite/Checkers sales points (addresses to follow and on FIFA.com), starting from 09:00 on April 19 and open seven days a week
Fans applying at any of the Ticketing Centres will be required to produce ID and pay by credit card or cash.
A total of 240 000 tickets were sold in the fourth phase, 85% of which went to South African residents. Overall, 2.2 million tickets have been sold for the tournament.
What this all means is that you can know go to the counter, request the game you would like to watch, they check for availability, charge you, you pay, you get your ticket and then you walk away.
Easy Peasy… The way it should have been from the beginning.
