One-third of World Cup
tickets unsold, FIFA says

Football officials say one-third of World Cup tickets remain unsold less than five months before the tournament begins.
FIFA said in a Wednesday statement that South Africans and Americans led the 1.2 million ticket bids in the third round of sales which will be settled by lottery next month. Two ticket draws remain before the World Cup begins June 11.
