The cheapest ticket at the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany will cost 35 euros with the most expensive, at the final in Berlin on July 9, priced at 600 euros (approx $720), world football's governing body FIFA announced. FIFA rubberstamped the proposed prices from the tournament's organising committee headed by Franz Beckenbauer. Tickets priced 35 euros will be available for the 47 first round matches with the exception of the opening match on June 9 in Munich. The least expensive ticket for the second round will be 45 euros, for the quarter-finals 55 euros, for the semi-finals 90 euros, and the final 120 euros. The organising committee wanted similar prices as the 1998 World in France which were priced between 32 and 480 euros. In the Far East in 2002, match tickets had been more expensive with the cheapest tickets 51 euros and the most expensive 950 euros. To avoid tickets getting on to the black market, only two tickets will be issued to each person. The sale of about 3.2 million tickets will start in December next year at the earliest. (PTI)
