World Cup: Tickets remain for just seven matchesFIFA say that ticket sales for the forthcoming World Cup have surpassed any previous -
Only seven of the 64 World Cup matches remain available as FIFA's latest sales phase nears an end.
FIFA say the World Cup in Brazil is the most successful tournament in terms of ticket requests, with more than 2.5 million tickets already sold for this summer’s showpiece event.
Most matches sold out quickly after tickets became available in the latest ticket sales phase on March 12, but a few group-stage games are proving tougher to sell.
According to FIFA, Greece-Ivory Coast in the north-eastern city of Fortaleza is the least popular match so far whilst Nigeria-Bosnia and Russia-South Korea, both in Cuiabá, also have tickets still available.
Tickets also remain for Uruguay-Costa Rica in Fortaleza, South Korea-Algeria in Porto Alegre, Honduras-Switzerland in Manaus, and Bosnia-Iran in Salvador.
Fans have until Tuesday to purchase tickets, with the next sales phase opening on April 15.
A total of about 3.3 million tickets are expected to be sold.
