Johannesburg - South Africa's 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Local Organising Committee (LOC) aims to sell 400 000 tickets by the end of December.

LOC chief executive Mvuzo Mbebe said on Wednesday that tickets were selling well, but admitted more needed to be sold by year-end.

"Between now and the end of December we are aiming for the 400 000 mark," Mbebe said.

The LOC wanted the tickets to be accessible and affordable to the public, both in South African and Africa in general, but warned fans to buy them as soon as possible.

"It is going to be critical for the SA public not to think that they can wait until the last minute to buy tickets. We spoke to a company and they told us Ethiopia have requested 15 000 tickets per match they play.

"Hopefully, tickets will be sold and the supporters should seriously begin preparing to buy tickets."
