Johannesburg - FIFA has sold 90% of the nearly three million tickets available for the Soccer World Cup, which starts in South Africa in 30 days, organisers said on Tuesday.
"All tickets will be sold out. I am quite confident about that," said Danny Jordaan, chief of the organising committee.
"About 300 000 tickets were sold in the last few weeks alone," Jordaan told a press conference.
The majority of the tickets had been snatched up by South Africans, followed by Americans and British.
South Africa was allocated discounted tickets, in a bid to allow ordinary people to watch the tournament, which is being played in Africa for the first time.
Last month, FIFA opened over-the-counter ticket sales, following complaints that the previous Internet sales system was too difficult to access in a country with relatively little online access.
The tournament runs from June 11 to July 11.
