  • Description

    ALL SEATS FOR ONE OF THE VENUES OF NEXT YEAR'S WORLD CUP FINAL SERIES -- LONDON'S WHITE CITY STADIUM -- HAVE BEEN SOLD, EIGHT MONTHS BEFORE THE EVENT BEGINS ON JULY 11.

    NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS FOR SEATS CAN BE ACCEPTED BY THE WORLD CUP ORGANISATION, AND AS A CONSEQUENCE, NO FURTHER 10-MATCH OR 7-MATCH SEASON TICKETS FOR SEATS IN THE LONDON PLAYING GROUP -- WEMBLEY AND WHITE CITY -- ARE BEING ISSUED.

    THE CUP ORGANISATION IS STILL ISSUING 9-MATCH TICKETS TO COVER WEMBLEY ALONE IN THE LONDON GROUP. MEANWHILE, THE BALL TO BE USED IN THE SERIES HAS BEEN CHOSEN FROM 50 SUBMITTED. IN ADDITION, MR. HAROLD MAYES, ORGANISING OFFICIAL, HAS PREPARED SEVERAL SPECIAL SOUVENIRS AND MEMENTOES FOR THE SERIES WHICH ARE SURE TO BECOME FAVOURITES AMONG FOOTBALL FANS.

    A STATEMENT RELEASED BY THE WORLD CUP ORGANISATION SAYS THE RUSH ON SEATING IS AN INDICATION OF INTEREST BEING TAKEN IN THE COMPETITION. ALREADY, MORE THAN GBP420,000 HAS BEEN BANKED IN FIRM TICKET SALES -- SOMETHING LIKE A QUARTER OF THE COMPETITION'S TOTAL SALES POTENTIAL.

    OVERSEAS VISITORS WHO HAVE BOUGHT 10-MATCH SEASON TICKETS FOR THE VARIOUS GROUP AREAS, WHICH INCLUDE MANCHESTER AND LIVERPOOL; SUNDERLAND MIDDLESBROUGH; BIRMINGHAM AND SHEFFIELD, AS WELL AS LONDON, NOW EXCEED 11,500. TOTAL SALES OF 10-MATCH SEASON TICKETS ARE ALREADY IN EXCESS OF 20,000.
