FIFA announces R140 tickets, but sells them for 10x that

SHOOT: They're a money making racket.

World football's governing body had announced via a press release that 15 000 partially obscured tickets would be made available across the country at R140 each, but fans who turned up as early as 24 hours before to secure their place in the queue were left disappointed once again to hear this was not the case.
In fact, only three matches were available to fans at the ticketing centre at The Spearhead in Cape Town. Paul Herman, who pitched up at 08:30 on Sunday morning with just a book and a chair to keep himself company, was first in the queue.
However, at the sales window he was told that only corporate hospitality tickets were available, and only for Portugal v Korea, Cameroon v Netherlands and the Quarter-Final, with prices ranging from R1 400 to R2 500.
