FIFA ticketing systems crash

Johannesburg - First National Bank (FNB) said on Friday that it was disappointed that the appointed FIFA ticketing agent Match's system crashed once again due to volume overload.

This happened despite guarantees and promises given to the bank by Match, as well as from the FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke.
   
"Jerome Valcke personally reassured fans on Thursday that there would be no further ticketing issues," said FNB marketing head Vicki Trehaeven in a statement.
   
"FNB has no indication of when FIFA's ticketing system will be operational again, but we will do our best to keep the people in our branches informed as and when we are in a position to do so," said Trehaeven.
