  • Description

    Fifteen months before the first kick-off, tickets for the 1974 World Cup Soccer tournament went on sale in West Germany yesterday (Monday) -- and fans queued for their opportunity to see the giants of world soccer in action.

    As the host country, West Germany is one of the teams automatically through to the final stages of the World Cup. Organisers were expecting a heavy demand for West Germany's opening matches in West Berlin and Hamburg.

    Altogether, more than two million tickets have been printed for the 38 games that make up the championship finals. More than half of them will be on sale in West Germany at 208 ticket offices.

    The organisers expect to earn over 35 million marks -- (more than GBP5 million sterling) -- from ticket sales. But this will be only a fraction of the 250 million marks (GBP35 million sterling) that it will cost to stage the competition.
