They paid off MC $57M to settle the case, so they should be working with VISA for SA2010.
By the time Feb roll around, the safest bet might be a USPS money order or a Western Union money transfer. With the way things going, we don't even know if VISA will be issuing credit come Feb - lets see if people will have jobs to pay their Christmas bills first!!

World Cup Tickets on Sale Friday

Quote
Every four years, the world's top 32 teams come together to contest the FIFA World Cupô finals. The tournament's big kick-off on 11 June 2010 in Johannesburg, South Africa is still quite a few months away, but for fans of the world's biggest single sporting event there is another important date on the horizon: the start of the first ticket sales phase on 20 February 2009.

Anyone who wants to attend the first-ever final phase on African soil would do well to put this date in their diaries. The first of a total of five sales phases will run from 20 February to 31 March 2009, with tickets being allocated by a random selection draw for over-subscribed matches and ticket categories. All orders will be entered into a random selection draw on 15 April 2009 at the same time regardless of whether they were submitted on the first or the last day of the first sales phase. Should demand exceed availability for a certain category or match then available tickets will be awarded by ballot (i.e. through an electronic random selection draw).

There are two ways for fans to order tickets: firstly, you can log on to FIFA.com, the official website of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa where fans can sign up for the FIFA.com Club for free. Those living in South Africa can also order tickets via the "FNB Visa Official Mascot Pre-paid card" available at First National Bank (FNB), by filling in an official application form and handing it in at one of the participating FNB branches around the country. The "FNB Visa Official Mascot Pre-paid card" will be the unique Ticket payment card for the fans who are successfully awarded tickets through the official paper application forms handed in at FNB branches in South Africa.



 

As well as individual tickets for the 64 matches, team-specific ticket series are also available for the country of your choice. These are valid for anything from three to seven games.

Tickets are available in three categories with category 4 reserved exclusively for South African residents. The least expensive ticket in category 3 costs $80 USD.

There will be four further sales periods for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa, with the second running from 4 May to 16 November 2009. During this period, tickets will be attributed based on the order in which the application is received and, of course, subject to availability.

All information on ticket sales is available on FIFA.com. Sign up for the FIFA.com Club for free and take part in competitions, meet new online friends, set up your own personalised version of FIFA.com and get all the latest news from around the world of football in a weekly newsletter.

I don't think you have to pay for the matches that don't happen for your team, so either if they don't qualify or don't make the next round you don't have to pay for those tickets.  I'm not sure though.

VISA is it. I don't think anyone here has mentioned applying for tickets yet - as the first window opened on Feb 20 and closes end of the month, Mar 31.

I just applied for TST-4 (follow your team for 4 matches). I think you can apply for up to 4 sets of tickets. You can apply for up to 7 tickets depending on what category.

Here is the pricing in US$.

       cat3  cat2  cat1
TST-3  $264  $396  $528
TST-4  $374  $561  $748
TST-5  $539  $781 $1078
TST-6  $814 $1221 $1738
TST-7 $1254 $1881 $2728

TST-3 means 3 games - opening round basically

also if you apply for TST-7 and the team only makes it so far, you're only charged for that number of games.

Yuh don't have to worry about the TTFF when the time come (if the time come).

Sadly I know I will not be making that trip this time.

Anyone apply for 2010 tix?
« Reply #13 on: March 21, 2009, 11:01:52 PM »
i know its early, but after the gongshow that was the 2006 ticket chase, i learned an important lesson from JDB.....apply early.  He and a couple i met in Germany was the only 2 i know who ordered phase 1 and both got throu.
I'm guessing if you put in for a TST Trinidad  in this phase you would have a good chance to get through, worse come to worse and we don't qualify all yuh lose is 10%
Deadline for phase 1 is end of the month

I appply for a TST 5 cat 2

As corrupt an entity as FIFA is, when it comes to tickets and any FIFA event, there is really no hassle with getting them.  I would advise anybody to ever try their luck with FIFA than to get dey eye dig out by jackula and he baby bats.

I have the "small print" from pre - scandal: Terms and Conditions 2005-12-05, also Package details
and post - scandal: Terms and Conditions 2006-01-14, and Package Details after

this is the relevant part that was removed:

"TICKETS: Simpaulís Travel obtains tickets for events in various forms and at different time periods. Simpaulís Travel is not necessarily in physical possession of admission tickets at the time a booking is made or accepted. Simpaulís Travel will be acquiring event tickets on Buyer's behalf. Ticket upgrades, subject to availability, may be purchased at an additional cost. Tickets cannot be guaranteed together in quantities greater than two (2), odd numbers, specific rows or sections."

Finally got my money back from FIFA for the TST tickets on Nov 25 after I was originally charged on April 22.

Minus $96 - I thought the thieves were only supposed to take $25 for processing.

edit: so that's $24 per person
