2014 FIFA World Cup tickets sold out in seven hours as second phase opens
Johannesburg: Nearly 230,000 tickets in the second phase of sales for the 2014 Football World Cup were sold out within seven hours after FIFA`s website made them available.

According to Sport24, FIFA said that the level of interest was impressive and was greater than in the first sales window, when almost 890, 000 tickets were allocated through a random selection draw.

More than 6.2 million tickets have been requested for the first World Cup in Brazil since 1950, nearly double the amount of total tickets available. Only 1.1 million were put on sale in the initial sales phases, the report said.

Tickets for the most popular games were not on sale in the second phase, including the June 12 opener in Sao Paulo, the July 13 final at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the two semifinals and all of Brazil`s group-stage matches, the report added.

More tickets will be on sale December 8, after the World Cup draw determines where and when the 32 teams will play, the report further said.

Football`s governing body said there were 3.6 million page views on the website on Monday, leading to an average waiting time of 45 minutes before people could access the page selling the tickets, according to the report.

Each applicant could request for up to four tickets for a maximum of seven of the 64 matches, the report mentioned. ANI -----------------

    interest in "Family Guy" has waned so that he can focus on working on his new baby (he definitely needs something to distract himself
    from the disaster that is "Dads"). After the cancellations, re-runs of the cartoon series aired on Cartoon Network's Adult

    often as they should. This oil can also transfer
    into the transport pipes, solidify, and cause excessive buildup that
    can cause blockage of the drainfield. Waste water in your tank

    enough time left on your visa status to ensure your stay after being
    denied. Proving negligence is done through the evidence you provide with your
    claim. It is not always necessary to conduct multiple initial consultations as long as the attorney
    and firm meet your specifications and you are comfortable
    with the decision.
