Ticket Sales Phases

Ticket sales for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africaâ„¢ will commence on 20 February 2009 and terminate on 11 July 2010. During this sales period there will be 5 distinct Ticket Sales Phases. The dates as set out in the schedule are all subject to possible change without prior notice.

The period from 20 February 2009 to 7 April 2010 is divided into 4 separate Ticket Sales Phases during which Ticket applications are processed either subject to a random selection draw process for Tickets that are oversubscribed or on a first-come-first served basis subject to availability. The 5th and final Ticket Sales Phase is referred to as the “Last Minute Sales Phase” and will take place from 15 April to 11 July 2010.

When can I apply for Tickets?

In order to ensure a fair and transparent allocation of tickets, even with ticket demand exceeding ticket supply, and in order to provide as many interested persons as possible with tickets, the procedure for ticket allocation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ has been divided into five phases.  Between the individual phases no applications can be submitted. The dates given below are all subject to possible change without prior notice.

First sales phase: 20 February 2009 to 31 March 2009
During this sales phase, the allocation process will involve a random selection draw for all over-subscribed Matches or Team Specific Tickets. The first sales phase random selection draw will take place on 15th April 2009. Please note: it makes no difference whether you apply early, on 20 February 2009, or late, on 31 March 2009. Each correctly submitted application will have the same opportunity of being successful in the draw.
Second sales phase: 4 May 2009 to 16 November 2009
Ticket applications submitted during this stage will be processed, subject to availability, on a first come first served basis – in the order of receipt.
Third sales phase: 5 December 2009 to 22 January 2010
The procedure corresponds to that of phase one: all correctly submitted applications received during this stage will be considered for allocation. If the number of applications for Match or Team Specific tickets exceeds the number of tickets available, tickets will be allocated by a random selection draw taking place on 1 February 2010. Please note: it makes no difference whether you apply early, on 5 December 2009, or late, on 22 January 2010. Each correctly submitted application will have the same opportunity of being successful in the draw.
Fourth sales phase: 9 February 2010 to 7 April 2010

Final / Last Minute sales phase: 15 April 2010 to 11 July 2010
Ticket applications will be processed on a first come first served basis, however Ticket transactions will be conducted immediately at the point of sale.

Random Selection Draw Sales Phases

Ticket applications are received throughout the full period of a Random Selection Sales Phase. All applications received during the Sales Phase have an equal chance of success, regardless of whether they are received by the FWCTC at the beginning or at the end of the Sales Phase. If the number of available tickets for a specific match and ticket product or category is greater than the number of applications received for such match and ticket product or category, tickets will be allocated and confirmed for all valid requests. If, however, the demand exceeds the number of tickets available for the match and ticket product or category requested, tickets will be allocated to the successful applicants via a random selection draw. All applicants will be contacted within approximately 3 days after the random selection draw process has been completed to confirm whether or not they have been successful.

First-Come-First-Served Sales Phases

Ticket applications received during these Sales Phases are processed according to the order in which they are received and subject to availability. Customers will be contacted within approximately 10 working days after submitting their application to the teller at the FNB branch to confirm whether or not their application has been successful.
