So did you get a ticket to the 2010 World Cup?
Soccer fans are starting to find out if they'll get tickets for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
FIFA began informing hundreds of thousands of soccer fans Thursday. Fans from 205 countries had requested a total of 1.8 million tickets in the first sales phase, with limits of four tickets per match and a maximum of seven matches.
A total of 245,948 tickets, or 44%, will be sent to South African residents. More than 69,000 tickets will go to the United States and almost 40,000 to England.
Ticket holders will be informed by e-mail or text message by the end of the month. The second sales phase begins in May with more ticket offers in December and early next year.
The World Cup begins in June 2010 in Johannesburg.
MY POV: I have NOT received my notice as of yet ... bummer.
