Another 1 million 2010 world cup tickets have been made available with the third phase ticketing phase for the FIFA World Cup Soccer, which was launched in Johannesburg on November 26,2009.

So far,  700.000 tickets for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup have been sold worldwide.

South Africa’s 2010 Local Organising Committee has urged Africans to buy those tickets. “If we want this to be an African World Cup, than Africans must buy tickets.

We want better sales for Bafana Bafana,” said Local Organising Committee chief executive Danny Jordaan.

“We can’t wait for 100 years for the World Cup to come to our country and then wait and buy tickets at the last-minute.”

One of the worries in South Africa is that the tickets for the 2010 Soccer World Cup will be too expensive for locals. In South Africa, slightly more than half of the population lives in poverty and under 1.25 dollars a day. Jordaan however said that  South Africa was going to host one of the cheapest World Cups. “The exchange rate has been fixed at R7 for a US dollar and people living in South Africa will pay only R140 (±$20) for per ticket,” he said.

All ticket applications will be randomly chosen. An individual can buy for tickets for each match and tickets for a maximum of seven matches. Soccer fans are allowed to buy team specific tickets if they want to follow a particular team during the tournament.

When this team is eliminated during the 2010 Soccer World Cup, than these people who have tickets left will automatically be following the team that their team. It is advised to apply for tickets in a higher category. If you are unsuccessful you can go into a draw in a lower category.”

When buying tickets for other people, you need to supply their names, ID number, nationality and date of birth.

It is expected that a huge run on 2010 FIFA World Cup tickets after the Final Draw for the 2010 Soccer World Cup, which will take place in Cape Town on December 4, 2009. During this event it will be disclosed whom the 32 qualified soccer teams will play in which 2010 host city.
