The offical Fifa 2010 World Cup kick-off is on 11 June 2010 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The first ticket sales phase on Friday, 20 February 2009!
The first of five sales phases runs from 20 February to 31 March 2009.
Tickets will be allocated by a random selection draw for over-subscribed matches.
All ticket orders will be entered into a random selection draw on the 15th April 2009.
Should demand exceed availability for a certain category or match then available tickets will be awarded by ballot (i.e. through an electronic random selection draw).
There are two ways for fans to order tickets: firstly, you can log on to FIFA.com, the official website of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa where fans can sign up for the FIFA.com Club for free.
Locals living in South Africa can also order tickets via the "FNB Visa Official Mascot Pre-paid card" available at First National Bank (FNB), by filling in an official application form and handing it in at one of the participating FNB branches around the country. The "FNB Visa Official Mascot Pre-paid card" will be the unique Ticket payment card for the fans who are successfully awarded tickets through the official paper application forms handed in at FNB branches in South Africa.
Exciting stuff, hurry and get your tickets now!
