Soccer: World Cup tickets to go on sale Feb. 20
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — Tickets for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa will go on sale Feb. 20.
FIFA said Wednesday it has already sold record amounts of hospitality packages to businesses around the world.
Spokesman Jermaine Craig said more than 50,000 packages worth some $115 million have been bought by small and large businesses — a "much faster pace" than sales for the 2006 championship in Germany.
Craig said tickets to the general public for Africa's first World Cup will be on sale at www.FIFA.com.
