Cape Town World Cup Ticket Update

April 26, 2010

All eight games for the 2010 World Cup in Cape Town have been reserved meaning that there are currently none available to the public.

Fifa have said there is a chance that small groups of tickets could become available in the future, this is thought to be when corporate ticket holders let their allocations go.

The 68,000 seater Cape Town stadium will be at capacity for every game, meaning that 544,000 fans will attend games in Cape Town!

In other news a Durban man sat in a ticketing que for 17 hours in Cape Town to be first in line only to recieve the wrong tickets. Mahesh Singh thought he had left the ticketing office with seven match tickets to the semi final on the 7th July in Durban only to find a few minutes later that he had bought seven tickets to the group match between Nigeria and South Korea instead.

Mr Singh is currently battling with Fifa and Match, the official ticketing company, in order to rectify the problem as he claims he filled out the forms correctly.
