One thing is for sure, there were 3,070,000 tickets.

Then they say they have sold 2,600,000, leaving 470,000 to go.

Then it says the International Football Family gets 191,000 and 276,000 were for the German Football Family. So thats 465,000 tickets, which means there are only 5,000 left.

It also says 347,000 were allocated for hospitality of which 170,000 have been sold, meaning that 177,000 are still available to be sold.

So by my sums FIFA have oversold by 172,000 tickets and there will be no more tickets available.

Can someone check my maths?


There wont be any for the England games...and any others will be so easy to get hold of, you might as well just tout it and pay face or even less. 1/4 finals in Portugal were going for peanuts apart from our game.


Cheers Romford. Im not that bothered by England games as it happens, just want to get tickets for some decent group games (maybe Italy or Brazil if lucky). Not bought tickets from touts (outside England) before, so do you reckon best plan is to get down town the night before a game? Or go to the stadium on match day?


Tout it half hour before the game mate

Italy will be easier to get than Brazil :wink:

Of those, Ivory Coast v Serbia sounds like could be the standout. Spain v Saudi will be totally one way traffic, while Paraguay-Trinidad might be alright.

Do you mean for the Frankfurt ticket? If so I thought you had to give Mastercard details on line, in which case you will be OK as they will have taken the money before sending the email. At least they did for the earlier sales stage anyway - on the bottom of the email it should say something like "The payment for the tickets was successful and the sum of X EUR has been debited from your MasterCard.".

Well this is my German trip. Drive down to Nuremberg on the 14th June from the Dam should take 6-7hrs. Booked a campsite for 2 nights 10quid a night!!!
Then slowly drive back up to Cologne stopping over in a few other cities showing over games and staying in a campsite 6miles outside Cologne for 12quid a night!!!!
BIG bag of weed (which I have given up but will make an exception for the WC,plus might get me a ticket :wink: ) plus on the lookout for a dirty German ass to mouth maid. :twisted:

i went for the bank transfer option because i dont have MasterCard and this is what my email saying i had tickets said:

Within the next 48 hours we will be sending you per e-mail a payment request
including precise details for you to complete a bank transfer for the following
amount 34,00 EUR (plus the transfer payment costs of both the financial
institution making the transfer and the bank receiving the payment, which you
must also cover).
This e-mail also informs you of the exact transfer payment process. You are
hereby informed that the payment must be completed within 14 days after receipt
of the payment request. Should your payment not be completed within the required
delay, your application will be cancelled.
