US Allotted World Cup Tickets Sold Out

Just incase you missed it, US Soccer put out a press release late on Thursday concerning the sale of tickets for US matches in Germany. Here is a quick summation. More people requested tickets during the pre-sale then are available, so there will be no public sale of tickets. People who submitted an application will find out by January 14th if they got tickets. This will allow time for people to request tickets during FIFA's third round lottery (which ends on the 15th).

For those of you that want to read the whole release, here it is:

U.S. Soccer announced Thursday that the demand for tickets for the 2006 FIFA World Cup during the pre-sale has exceeded the organization’s ticket allocation and there will be no public sale in the United States for the world’s most popular sporting event.

A public sale had tentatively been scheduled for Friday, January 6 in the event the demand for tickets during the private sale did not exceed U.S. Soccer’s allotment.

Fans are encouraged to continue to check for further information on how to be put on a public sale waiting list, should the situation change.

SPECIAL NOTE: Ticket orders for fans that participated in the private sale are being processed and applicants will be notified on or before January 14 as to their status. This will enable those applicants who do not receive tickets to participate in the third stage of the FIFA World Cup Ticket sale on line at For those fans taking part in the pre-sale that will not be receiving tickets from U.S. Soccer’s ticket allotment, they will be placed on the priority waiting list based on when their order was submitted.
