World Cup Ticket Scandal?

FIFA always has to have their hands in everything don't they.

Sponsors such as Coca-Cola, Budweiser and McDonald's will have one in six of all the tickets - 490,000 in total. The 15 World Cup sponsors receive up to 25,000 tickets each.

The percentage is not calculated from the stadium's capacity for a Bundesliga match but Fifa's 'saleable capacity' - about 20 per cent less. The other seats go to the media, VIPs, TV cameras and for security.

People are complaining that ordinary fans get too few tickets while sponsors and corporates have too many.
