FIFA is giving away some free tickets for the Confederations Cup semifinal match between Spain and the United States.

The governing body of world football said Tuesday there were about 6,000 tickets still on sale for the match at the 38,000-seat Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein.

“There will be a certain number of tickets given on a complimentary basis,” FIFA spokesman Nicolas Maingot said.

“Again, it’s a gesture from FIFA... for people to have a chance to enjoy this game."

After sparse crowds in the opening few matches of the World Cup warm-up event in South Africa, FIFA decided to distribute tickets to certain institutions such as schools and local authorities to hand out for free. FIFA, however, has not said how many tickets have been given out for any of the matches thus far.

The average attendance through the 12 matches at this year’s tournament is 34,783, according to FIFA.
