Semi Final Cape Town Tickets

June 28, 2010

According to the Fifa.com website there could be tickets available for the semi final game between Argentina and Germany.

There live ticket table (https://lmsfwctickets.fifa.com/LMS/MatchAvailability.aspx) shows that tickets are currently not available which normally means they are waiting to be released from organisations and corporate/government who will declare they do not require them – this could mean there are only a few hundred to go on sale to the public.

In order to stand a chance for these tickets you should be outside one of the official ticket offices now! There are stories of people waiting in Cape Town for two or three days for the last 16 match between Spain and Portugal.

Of course the other alternative is to be at the Waterfront in Cape Town next Saturday and enjoy the atmosphere, a few beers and the game – thats where I will be 🙂

Table Mountain from the Waterfront

Friday 28th May there were 160,000 world cup tickets released for sale to the general public, by 1st June 100,000 tickets had been sold, on the Friday the Fifa ticketing platform had crashed (again) and caused more problems for people waiting in line through out South Africa – police had to be called in to control upset and angry crowds in Cape Town and Johanesberg.

Of the 100,00 world cup tickets sold;

  • 53,000 tickets were sold through FNB ban branches
  • 30,000 were sold at the Fifa website and Fifa call centre
  • 3,500 sold at local South African shops Shoprite & Checkers

At present the only world cup tickets remaining in Cape Town are a few category 1 tickets are available for the 8 matches to be played in the city. There are still thought to be 50,000 – 60,000 tickets remaining for 50 games through out the rest of South Africa.

This is expected to be the last large ticket release before the world cup starts on the 11th June – Fifa say there should be more tickets available later but in much smaller quantities.

Jerome Valcke, Fifa general secretary, said “We are getting close to a 97 percent average attendance, something which corresponds to the figures of Germany in 2006.”

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.
