180,000 Extra Tickets to be Made Available for 2014 World Cup
By Community | June 3, 2014
Organisers of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil have announced an additional 180,000 tickets will be made available for the upcoming competition.
The tickets will become available at midnight in Brazil on Tuesday.
“Fans don’t need to queue at the FIFA Venue Ticketing Centres – if they want tickets to the matches which are currently temporarily unavailable, all they need to do is to access FIFA.com/tickets from the first minute of Wednesday 4 June. The sale of this new lot starts at midnight from Tuesday to Wednesday, Brasilia local time. Sales occur on a first come, first served basis”, explains Thierry Weil, FIFA’s Marketing Director.
Tickets for all matches have become available due to the release of what FIFA described as “buffers in some stadiums following their delivery”.
FIFA added that there had been “very little demand” for seats for people with reduced mobility, and that some of these seats were being made available to all fans.
Some of the seats would remain allocated for reduced-mobility fans, FIFA said.
