Over the past weeks,various media reported on the slow ticket sales for the 2010 world cup, and about how South Africans were not buying tickets.  According to a recent statement by FIFA however, 2 million tickets have been sold, with several matches already oversubscribed.

According to the international football organisation, which is headed by Sepp Blatter, 79 percent of the 1.2 million applications received in the third ticketing phase that ended on January 22, were from South Africans. “All games of the South African team will be sold out,” said Danny Jordaan, the head of South Africa’s 2010 Local Organising Committee.
