    Do not know for sure, but I believe all the other tickets are only sold through package tours. I believe all the finals are sold out. Ticketek is the official public ticket vendor, and a Brazialian company is the official package tour and tourism vendor:

    Grupo Aguia.

    Yo se muy bien de lo que hablo hijito. Yo fui a las Copas America en Paraguay y Peru. Habia que hacer cola en un lugar patrocinador (Paraguay fue un banco y Peru una tienda) el dia antes de cada partido y comprar tus entradas en persona.

    The Argentina Football Association has relaeased this notice due tothe large number of counterfeit tickets now being sold on websites and elsewhere:

    ___________________
    Info de la AFA sobre las entradas de la Copa América:

    Todas las personas que hayan comprado su entrada para la próxima Copa América "Argentina 2011" deberán pasar por un doble control.

    Estos controles tienen formas de detectar de inmediato la autenticidad de cada ticket.

    El Comité Organizador de la Copa América “Argentina 2011”, cumple en informar a todos quienes hayan comprado o prevean comprar su entrada para este certamen, que si las mismas no fueron adquiridas vía Ticketek Argentina S.A. no podrán superar los controles. Y en ese caso, se dará intervención a las autoridades correspondientes.

    Y recomendamos no compre su entrada en ningún sitio web, ni tampoco a revendedores, porque se trata de entradas falsificadas.

    primero que nada no soy hijo tuyo, y no, no sabes de lo que hablas por que te di hasta los links, uno oficial. de que ayas ido a uno o dos o tres o mil no significa que lo hagan igual en todo los sitios o que cada pais use algun metodo diferente para sus fanaticos que quieran seguir a su nacion.

    te demonstre que ticketek no eran los unicos en vender los tickets, te di los links y te di las fechas y los precios y el lugar. que mas quieres, copia del formulario. si quieres saber mas que la misma gente del organismo paraguayo aya tu. yo solo dije que ticketek no eran los unicos y para cualquier persona que aya ido a algun evento similar sabe que a cada organizacion le dan un abono de entradas para sus fanaticas. Como ya has estados en otros no te lo tengo que decir. todo es asi, olimpiadas, juegos panamericanos, etc.

    Note to those buying tickets from Ticketek Argentina:

    The dates, times and locations of the ticket pickup for the various options have just been changed, and sent by mass mailings to previous ticket purchasers, but the OLD info is still on the purchase site at this time!

    If you want some details, check out the threads on the Copa America on the Thorn Tree forum of Lonely planet for Copa America

    http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/thread.jspa?messageID=18583369&#18583369

    Be careful with your planning, or you may end up screwed!

    I do not know (they have not said), but supposedly they will be able to determine firstly if they are counterfeit tickets, and seondly that they belong to the holders, so the purchaser may have to produce id at entry.

    Apparently they have done this because there are many counterfeit tickets out there.

    INTERNAL CONTROLS, POTENTIAL PROBLEMS FOR SOME PURCHASERS THROUGH OTHERS

    On post 432 I published an announcement in the newspapers in Spanish (with my rough translation), not sent by email to ticket purchasers, about the "DOUBLE CONTROLS" for entry to ensure the tickets are authentic. There is nothing on the Ticketek website aobut this (in fact the info at the time of purchase was different and ocntradictory).

    I received my tickets for out-of Mendoza maches today, including tickets for a friend for matches I will not be attending in other cities.

    Included with the set of tickets for every event is a quasi-ticket with a readable strip (the tickets themselves have a readable strip, The quasi -ticket is labeled CONTROL INTERNO (Internal Control) and has the name of the purchaser (without the purchasers id# or credit card #, both of which may be readable in the internal strip). The potential problems for people who have purchased for others can be seen in this letter I have just fired off to a friend:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    " Your 6 tickets have come They are all here and in order.


    Even though they were supposed to arrive tomorrow morning, they arrived late this morning today while I happened to be at home. Good thing I had not decided to go for a run after my appointment. Typical.


    Potential Problem: For each match there are all the tickets purchased tickets, and one quasi-ticket that say "Control Interno". This is what the announcemnt about internal double controls sent two weeksago refers to.They are in my name. It may mean you may not enter without my showing my Passport and Mastercard I do not know, and will try to find out for you from Ticketek.You may be able to get by with a blurred photocpy of my passport and a photo of my Mastercard, and I will provide you this, I will ask if originals are necessary. This was not a condition at the time of purchase. If so, it could mean you could not use the 4 tickets for the Corboba Group matches and the QF and SF in La Plata. Do not panic yet, we do not know.They have never explained what the double controls involved.

    It would not be a potential problem for the 3rd Place match and the Final, as I will accompany you.

    I will keep you posted. As I said from the beginning, and you accepted, the risk of purchase was yours. I also have continuously stress the possibility of complications, especially when it became clear they were making it up as the went along.

    I hope reason will prevail and all will be okay.

    I will keep you posted.

    Nos vemos
    ---------------------

    I am now drafting an message to Ticketek asking for clarification, explaining potential problems, and lack of and contrary notice at the time of purchase.

    I will keep you posted.

    If nothing else, this should stand as another warning about buying tickets from unofficial sources.

    Yes, a disaster for all the overeseas visitors especially. Let´s hope things die down on the volcano front.

    Copa America could be delayed due to ash cloud

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Positive news on the INTERNAL CONTROL front, email just received , meaning that the purchaser does not need either to be with the ticket holder or to show id on stadium entry¨...



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Let me confirm that, as you mention before, the internal control is only to determine the authenticity of the ticket.

    Todos los partidos de Argentina estan agotados en la pagina.
    Pero habian un monton de asientos vacios anoche. En la tele dijeron que hubieron muchas compañias que compraron entradas para darselas a sus empleados y muchos no fueron. Que ganas de joder al hincha comun.

    Tengo entradas para 3 partidos en 3 ciudades diferentes...alguien sabe si puedo retirar las entradas para todos los partidos al mismo tiempo (en una ciudad distinta donde no van a jugar ese partido)?

    Por ejemplo en Sudafrica, se podría retirar todas las entradas al mismo tiempo aunque sean en otras ciudades...

    Las "agotaron" antes de la Copa, pero durante la Copa han aparecido varias disponibles para muchos partidos (lo mismo sucede en la venta de entradas para los conciertos de alta convocatoria).

    Un pata uruguayo que esta en mi hotel dijo que consiguio hoy entrada en la cancha de Chacarita, por 80 pesos.
    Tambien hay servicios de turismo que te llevan del hotel al estadio y el servicio incluye la entrada.
    Esas agencias tienen a muchachos parados en Florida con cartelitos de la Copa America.
