2010 Soccer World Cup Tickets
2010 Soccer World Cup Tickets

Tickets sales are still selling like hot cakes. However, it seems that tickets for the Bafana games are not being bought by the local crowd. According to the latest, less than 100 000 tickets have been sold for the six African countries that are taking part in the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

This statement comes from the chief executive officer of the 2010 Local Organising committee, Danny Jordaan.
 
The opening match is Bafana Bafana against Mexico. The next couple of matches that Bafana has are against Uruguay at Loftus on June 16th, and then against France in Bloemfontein on the 22nd.
 
Jordaan says, “This will be the first time in World Cup history that the host nation are not topping the ticket sales list. Sadly Bafana are not even in the top 10. England at this stage will have more supporters at their country's games than will be at Bafana matches. It will be tragic if this trend continues and I appeal to local fans to come out and support their country.”
 
Jordaan also urges the locals to support their own team. However, the players and the South African Football Association do have a hand in some of the blame to put on their shoulders.
 
In 1996, Bafana won the African Nations Cup and were ranked as one of the top 20 in the world that year. Now, they have slipped down to 85th on the ranks, making them the lowest ranking team in the World Cup.
 
Brazilian Carlos Alberto Parreira was re-hired to help get Bafana back onto their feet.
 
Danny also says, “We want this World Cup to be an African World Cup and yet so far all the African teams involved are not coming to the party.”
 
“I will be meeting with top officials from the five African teams that will be competing at the World Cup here in June in a bid to stress the fact they need to boost sales and bring their supporters here. But the biggest concern at this stage is South African fans are not buying tickets for Bafana matches. The sales locally are good for other countries, but not Bafana matches and that is something we have to address urgently.”
 
The current selling phase end on January 22, so go get your Bafana tickets now!
 
The World Cup kicks off at the Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg, June 11th.
