    Just out of interest, did you guys that have had tickets sold receive an email straight away informing you of the sale?

    Hi Type-r,

    I haven't received any email from FIFA on the updated status of my ticket, I think everyone on here with sold TST's have only found out by checking their account following a few confirmed reports of TST's selling.
    I think there has been enough FIFA-bashing on here without me adding to it, but I really didn't anticipate them notifying anyone with any kind of urgency on this anyway.
    I think I will be more concerned about the actual refund being notified to us once the tournament is over. If it's not showing on the card after 3 weeks or so people are going to start to get a bit twitchy. But let's cross that particular bridge when we come to it!

    Just confirmed as sold a Slovenia TST4, category 3. With tickets available for the Algeria and England games, and potential round 2, I'd expected this to be a lot more difficult.

    No e-mail notification received, just an update on my Sell Tickets option.

    Cheers for the update. Just wondering if I needed to log into my FIFA account everyday, which obviously I have to do.

    The applicant ticket on my 2 TST-6 Cat.2 Mexico (which both yesterday said "Ticket Sold"), now says Ticket to Resale again. The guest ticket still says Ticket Sold.

    Has this happened to anyone who had already "sold" a TST?

    Having sold 1 of my 3 TST's, I now don't seem to have the optionn to recover tickets, or donate to the ticket fund.

    Not that I need to use either of these functions, but has anyone elses ticket screen had this function removed?

    I think the above was a pre-cursor to more movement from FIFA. I have now sold all 3 of my TST5 (Cat-2) for England.
    FIFA must have removed the option to withdraw the sale as they had already got their grubby hands on the tickets, possibly pending their decision on whether to buy them back or not. Now I am ticketless!
    For information, these went up for resale on 20th April as soon as the proper link was active.

    The summary page still shows all 3 to resale, but the 'My tickets' shows all 3 sold.
    Until the money makes it's way back to UK (hopefully with a little profit given the difference in exchange rate from 13 months ago) I still won't be convinced they have sold, but let's see!

    I hope you all have the same luck as I have in selling your unwanted stock.
    28 days, 10 hours, 44 minues and a few seconds to wait. Come on England!

    It wasn't with a TST but one of my games had all 4 tickets Sold for awhile and then one day I looked and it was back up for Resale.

    My assumption in that case was someone bought it but then their card failed or their bank cancelled the transaction.

    With TSTs, its a bit different -- gotta assume FIFA couldnt get rid of one of those TST sets and put it back on sale.

    can some one please tell me i have not messed things up

    i brought 3 tst england in the frist ballot.
    one of my mates could not come...so i on april 16th i went through the re sales process.

    i read the rules and so did my mate who it said basically you could not break a tst so you would have to sell all 3 tickets as one. also it said the main applicant could not sell else all tickets would this was not the case as my mate ticket and i was the main applicant.

    So i put 1 tst3 ticket out of my 3 for sale...not the main applicant.

    i checked today and it shows in the summary 1 tst under his name for resale.

    in my tickets though it shows all 3 names indvidially and says ticket sold...What does this mean.

    have they sold all 3 tsts i had? please can someone help me

    Hi Sam77777,

    It sounds like all is ok here.
    Many people have reported (me included), a difference between what is shown on the Summary tab compared to that of the 'My Tickets' tab, the 'My Tickets' tab is the one that you should really believe.
    Providing it only says sold against ONE of the 3 listed names, all is cool and you will have a blast in ZA, if it says SOLD on all 3 lines, well, that's a another story...

    Enjoy your trip,
    StanleyUK.

    I just had the same problem.
    I had 4 Cat1 TST7 tickets.
    I've put 2 for sale and yesterday those 2 were listed as sold.
    However, when I checked again today, all 4 were listed as sold !!!
    I checked the resale request again and it shows the I have only put 2 for sale.
    I tried to call but it was too late.

    gb1204...mate so do you know what has happened?

    are all your tickets gone on resale?
    mate im all over the place..ive booked and spent so much money and not having tickets is going to send me crazy!!!

    All the rules say is that you cannot break a TST ticket - to me this means if you put one for sale i.e a guest one then you have to sell all game tickets to that tst.

    does anyone have any back door contact numbers for fifa they have used as i know people on this forum have listed but i cannot find...im going to call them today.

    Just call them and it was long and tiresome.
    The man insisted that you can either put all of your TST or none at all.
    I kept saying to him that this is not the case, but he kept telling me it is.
    Then, he logged into my account and saw that only 2 were put to sale while all 4 as been sold. He had no idea and his supervisor should call in a couple of hours.
    Luckily for me, this is my secondary TST. I took 2 TST7s so I can go to more games. I was planning to use only 2 tickets while selling the others so I'm quite calm.
    In my other application the 2 extras were not sold, so I pulled the resale request back, and if needed I'll trade the tickets for the ones I want.

    I'll let you know when they call me back.

    GB1204 and my issue- regarding tst ticket resale and number amount.

    basically we both have a number of TST where we have put for resale 1 or 2 guest and not the main applicant.

    so for example i have 3 x tst3 and i have put 1 of these tst for sale.

    the website shows as all three of my TST sold in my tickets under each name which is NOT what i wanted to see as i have not put all for sale.

    I called fifa today and they gave me there supervisor in the UK (im from England) She just called me back to confirm that the website info is incorrect and it is what i think it is...the only tickets for sale are the ones i have put for sale. The web view, info is not correct.

    To many of you out there please DO NOT BELIEVE THE website. The system is showing incorrect data. i do not have 100% faith in the system and im glad my issue is sorted hopefully the guys who are not going and selling there tickets get there money back

    I just managed to sell 2 x TST4 for Algeria CAT1, or so it says under "My Tickets", while in the Summary section it still says "To resale".

    I've seen many people having the same issue. Has it been updated to "sold" on both sides for any of you? Can we trust that the tickets are actually sold? I guess so, but I don't feel 100 % safe yet. It's FIFA after all....
