    Is anyone being able to view their applications?
    I used to click on buy tickets, it took me to applications, where I had the option so buy tickets or sell tickets...now it takes me directly to the buying tickets page.

    The only reason any one is getting tickets with good seats is because of the people backing out of this thing and the fact the local nation's people can't afford to go to a match. Sorry SA. I have said this before and I have take a hit because of it but SA is not ready for this thing but too late now. Good luck to everyone and keep safe!!!

    Anyone going better take advantage of this rare opportunity to see matches normally non of us from the US at least would see unless we scalped the tickets for lots of money like the English do.

    For 4 world cups I tried for the opening match, semis and finals along with many of my friends and nobody could lay their hands on such tickets. I wish I didn't have to back out but of course this is the one world cup where I could see the Final. I'm pretty pissed but what can I do? My luck is that I got a DVT and PE from an ankle injury one month before to the cup. I feel like Ballack and Essien right now. $2200 bucks down the drain unless FIFA resales my tickets but I doubt that will happen. They've got my money already! Brazil awaits.....

    I have the same problem too viewing my ticket app. I use to go to Buy Tickets and boom! There it was but now-nothing. I can't see my tickets or if FIFA has resold them. WTF!

    Do we think that is it for Final tickets or will there be more released? I notice that they are not red on the FIFA tickets page. What does that mean?

    To view resale status, login to your fifa account and then click on this link:

    https://ticketresale.fifa.com/Resale/



    To view tickets purchased during this phase:

    https://lmsfwctickets.fifa.com/LMS/UserArea/TicketsArea.aspx

    If it shows you a page with username and login, go back to the main ticketing page (where it shows 'buy tickets' and 'check availability' buttons), and then go to the ticket wizard page (where it shows all the yellow boxes etc.) and then click on the above link. Or, click on 'More' in the navigation bar and select 'Ticket Area'.


    Totally disagree with triplesevn's post. FIFA screwing up the ticket sales doesn't mean South Afria as the host country isn't ready. Apples and oranges.

    Sorry but I need to stay close to the field. What better venue to try out your streaking skills than the world cup final?

    This message can have multiple causes:

    - Your credit card doesn't have enough credit left.
    - Your bank rejected the payment attempt due to security reasons. You need to call your bank and confirm it.
    - Unknown! I say this because I too faced the same issue when I tried to purchase a final ticket earlier. I went through the whole payment process again and it went through. So in this case, I have no idea why this message was displayed.
    - (Place to fill other reasons if other ppl here know of a cause that wasnt mentioned here)

    Interesting to compare the location of category 3 tickets at different stadia. Remember how FIFA said category 3 were along the end line above the category 4 seats? Check out the category 3 seats at Polokwane for a game like Algeria v Slovenia. There are category 3 seats along the sidelines in sections adjacent to the field. FIFA has definitely upgraded seats to get rid of them for some games. Rough deal for people who bought seats earlier when the official definitions still applied. Good deal for procrastinators.

    I lost a set because of this (but luckily picked up a different set soon thereafter)

    My credit card company called me after the charge had already been denied, and told me there was a possible fraud attempt for a charge to Switzerland.

    I would have been really pissed off if I lost that set and couldnt find another, because of the CC company.

    Not sure that answers the question (at least among Englishmen). For those following along at home:

    Are you using MasterCard?
    I tried with 2 different cards and get the same error for both of them. I called the bank & CC company and they said that I have enough credit to pay such a price.
    What can I do as there is no more tickets to the final? because of my CC I will lose the final????

    I'm so sad :mad:

    Just to be clear, there shall be no lap-sitting at all! I bought four final tickets just to avoid this from happening.

    You are right.

    We had 2 Cat 3 tickets for Eng v Slo. Last night I was able to buy 2 cat 4 tickets in the identical block for a fraction of the price.

    Hopefully I can offload the cat 3's and thus save myself a fair bit of cash.

    I got this in the previous phase and got nothing back from those fifa f*&ks. I had to create two new accounts, the third one ended up working, just to be safe i put my 'teams' as the teams I wanted to see Arg, Brazil etc

    It's looking quite red today.

    The final is still orange so hopefully before I leave for Jo'burg at the end of June some tix may become available through returns from agents.

    If not, it'll be the fan park for me.

    It's so close now, can almost taste it!
