2010 World Cup Facts and Figures


From news service Reuters, a facts and figures chart on 2010 World Cup tickets.
How many of you have applied? Was the process easy?

TICKET NUMBERS

* Just over 3 million tickets will be available for the 64 matches of the tournament, to be played in 10 different venues across South Africa

* Around 1.5 million tickets will be sold to the public. This is divided into 740,000 tickets on sale from Friday; 570,000 made available later in the year to supporters of qualified countries and 344,000 to those who buy tickets through an official tour operator

* World Cup sponsors are entitled to 550,000 tickets with a further 380,000 for hospitality rights holders. TV rights holders are entitled to 66,000 tickets

* FIFA will keep 200,000 tickets for member associations who do not qualify, give 89,600 to each participating country's football association and give the local organising committee 91,000 tickets to distribute

WHERE TO BUY

* Tickets are to be sold through FIFA's website (www.fifa.org), starting on Friday at 11 a.m. British time.

* In South Africa, tickets will also be sold through an application form and pre-paid credit card available at bank branches throughout the country

WHEN TO BUY

* There are three types of sales phases: random selection (phases one and three), first-come-first-served basis (phases two and four) and a last-minute sales phase

* The first phase closes on April 15 after which applicants will be told whether or not they have succeeded in their bid to buy tickets * The second phase is from May 4-November 16, the third is from December 5 until January 22, 2010, the fourth is from February 9 to April 7 and the last one starts on April 15, 2010, when FIFA still expects tickets to be returned to the pool.

WHAT TO BUY

* FIFA is selling two types of tickets: individual match tickets and a team-specific ticket series package, allowing fans to follow the national team of their choice. This can go up to seven games depending on how far the team progresses.

* Supporters can choose from any team that still has a chance of qualifying. If the team does not qualify, their purchase will be refunded.

* FIFA will give 120,000 free tickets to people from poorer areas of South Africa * Individuals may apply for up to four tickets per match to a maximum of seven matches.

TICKET PRICES

* Prices range from $20 (14 pounds) for the cheapest ticket to $900 for the most expensive.

* Opening match tickets range from $70 to $450, Group-stage tickets from $20 to $160 and knockout-stage tickets are priced from $50 to $600.

* World Cup final tickets are $150-900.

WHERE TO PICK THEM UP

* Tickets will be physically available only from April 2010 from specially created ATM terminals at dedicated ticketing centres, where successful applicants insert their credit card and tickets are printed automatically. These machines will be situated in the host cities and at airports.
