Link to World Cup Ticket Site

Continuing with our theme of "news you can use ..."

If you want to attempt to purchase tickets to the 2010 World Cup, here is a link to the site that starts you on your way.

Many of the 3.2 million tickets remain available because we don't know most of the field yet.

And for five countries already qualified -- Australia, Japan, Netherlands, North Korea and South Korea -- we have no idea what groups they will end up in.

All we know for sure is when South Africa (team No. 1 in Group A) plays its group-stage matches.

Organizers say the biggest demand for tickets, so far, is from Europe and the United States.

The record for most tickets sold for a World Cup is nearly 3.6 million, sold for the 1994 World Cup in the United States. That record may not be broken for a while because of the size of the venues used by American organizers.
